    They stand in less than 1/4" of water and when the tray evaporates, I add more water. That's during the growing season. From fall through winter they are kep almost totally dry.

    Thanks! I'll let my Mexicans dry out then. Maybe that's why my Moctezumae isn't looking so hot--too wet for the season??


    You can see the water level on my Primuliflora on this pic below. Is this healthy??

    Looks fine. Older leaves will die out. Not a problem. You will still need to get the purpurea & VFT oustide, somehow, and make a friend with someone who has a garage or attic, for dormancy.

    I know, I wish I had outdoor space. I do have a very cool unheated vestibule in my front entrance hall where temperatures must reach down to the low 30s at times during the winter, so perhaps that will be a nice spot once the plants on my windowsill go dormant (I'm going to skip dormancy for this VFT. and S. Purp because they're so fresh out of their death cubes).

    Not to be a pill about it, but I see this guy has VFTs and S. Purps in his grow rack, and they look beautiful! What's his story? I know it's a very old thread but... I'll have what he's having !
