    I may be mistaken but I believe that "Fraser Red Leaf" is a form of moranensis x gypsicola... I'll check my growlist.

    Yeah, according to my growlist it is that hybrid

    Pyro, the plant came labelled as P.moranensis var "fraser f. red". If it happens to be P.moranensis x gypsicola, does it have winter leaves? And how do you "winter" them?

    I am freaking out now 'cos I can't decide whether to leave the rootless (I peeped) plant alone and not water it. But the lowest temperature here is at most 77degF and that's nowhere near winter's cool.

    Or should I go the Pingman's way of high light, high humidity and high water level... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I'm thinking that the plant would have come from Triffid Park and the plants they sell as P. moranensis var. "Fraser red" are just a P. moranensis form and not a hybrid with P. gypsicola.

    Hmmm...This is interesting. I did notice this past summer, before I started to cultivate my plants under flourescents, that many species stopped growing and seemed to languish and even die off during the terrible heat wave we had. Once the temperatures moderated, they bounced back nicely with renewed vigor, and those that did not I was able to replace by taking leaf pullings.

    Because I do not air condition, I left my windows wide open all summer long, implying that humidity levels were inconsistent. And because they were in windowsills, perhaps the amount of light reaching them had decreased due to the shifting angles of the sun. It will interesting to see how they grow for me next summer now that my groing conditions have changed (i.e., shift from natural to artificial light).

    I'm curious, what are your lighting conditions (bulb type, wattage, photoperiod, plant distance from lights, temperature around plants, etc.)? Thanks.
