    I leave mine outside. It started to rot indoors this winter so I figured I had nothing to lose. It has a water tray that comes up to within a half to a quarter of an inch of the soil surface. When it rains I let the tray fill up all the way and then I empty it a little when the weather clears up, and let evaporation do the rest. It seems pretty happy this way.

    It's like stores spend all the time on the normal plants and barely give the CPs half a glance.. it's because CPs have been trivialized. Nobody takes them seriously except actual CPers.

    I thunk another important factor is that with all the other plants they sell, they can water them with whatever comes out of the hose. CP's can't take that. Also, they NEVER think about open tray or air circulation.

    I have never found a store that knows diddly about cps. Even people like me with limited experience are experts compared to most retail outlets. Unless of course an actual cper just happens to work there. If you buy from a Home Depot, Lowes, Wal-Mart, etc., do it when they first get the shipment in. I picked up a couple of VFT at my Wal-Mart about 6 weeks ago (my first VTF's). When they first came in. They look great. The others back at the store are all very sick or dead for lack of proper care.

    Don't wait until compassion drives you to save their lives. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I once found a P. ionantha at lowes,
    although that was some years ago.
