    mine is making its winter bud now. heat and wetness dont always mean 'ever grow' pings. if the photoperiod is reduced then it goes into its resting stage. here is mine. the very center leaf is its first winter leaf.

    Hey Clint,

    I had some P. moranensis from cuttings do the same thing in a closed deli cup under lights. The plants make fleshy leaves and seem to have trouble unfurling. The problem stopped when I repotted the plants into clay/sand/perlite and left them outside. They started growing normally and have since gone dormant.

    could it possibly be because of poor root areation? Mine did something different, but could this be another side effect.

    Made some calcium sulfate and added it to the top of the soil.

    I guess that that was the problem then, not enough calcium
