    Cool

    Mexican is better... It wont need asmuch soil. I think morans need lots of sun...

    Which mexican needs little sun, and is not really big?

    Moranensis will do alright in low light, my brother-in-law's is over 7" across in a sunless windowsill. You could also do ehlersai and maybe agnata

    do any of those have a leaf span of three inches or less? it will be in a clear glass vase... its sperical, so i can fill with medium to the widest point, but u cant water the leaves, you have to water from the side so that water goes all the way down.. right?

    Thanks... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    if you water the leaves the glue will just wash away, but it will come back. And Uh, lots of pings don't need tons of soil either! But Mexican's are typically VERY shallow rooted, so I see your point.

    I grow all my moranensis var. caudata 'Longwood' on a sunless, but very bright windowsill. These guys rarely grow over 4in for me as they divide into smaller plants when they reach this size.

    P. ehlersai is under 3" so it would probably be your best bet
