    Question

    Hi, BobZ gave me a P. 'John Rizzi' and I really don't know much about it. Savage Garden doesn't help much. What kind of conditions does it grow in? Does it go dormant? Just give me the basic things that I need to grow this little guy efficiently.

    Wow, this plant must be like...a phantom or something if no one knows anything about it either. I'll just have to search the internet like crazy til I find something. Unless someone DOES know about them. Don't hesitate to post. Thanks anyway, ^_^

    I meant that you have to keep it drier......
    I always say cold winter dormacy or dry winter dormacy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    Its simple really:

    Put it on a windowsill or terrarium, wait for the tray to dry out completely before watering, not too much water or you risk root rot, keep drier in winter, and onky water a little bit around once a week.

    Oh....I read the part in savage garden about P. John Rizzi many times and it must not say that directly cuz I didn't catch it. It says here..."In my California Greenhous in the summer, hummingbirds frequently make a beeline for our flowering MEXICAN butterworts." I didn't catch that part. >.< Oh no! that means I have it in the wrong soil mix and everything. This is great....I have it in Peat and Sand I think. Anyway now I'll just have to read as much as I can about Mexican butterworts. Thanks for pointing that out for me.
