    repots, pics, pets..

    N. hamata basal isn't rooting. It's rotting, right?



    Pings were starting to decay in old soggy media.







    My new ping media mix I'm trying is 2 perlite, 1 pouzzolane (crushed lava rock), 1 fine sand, 1 coarse sand, 1 calcareous clay, 1 LFS.







    New Ping setup..





    P. moctezumea flowering



    N. lowii





    My over photographed Ceph.. Sorry, I just can't get enough of it!











    Looks like it's time for another dew tank!





    The best pic I could get.. D. rotundifolia



    TIME FOR YOU KNOW WHO!!

    Hey, who sent me this package!?!? Some CP.. Carnivorous Pussycat



    I swear this wasn't staged..

    if something happens to the hamata, let me know...dont give up on it though, if you keep moving it to check for roots, its just gonna mess it up....a couple of the others ive sent hamata basals to that were the same size havent had any problems...

    I just checked once after I noticed the little bit of rot on the leaf. I figured that was just cause to disturb it. Otherwise, I use leaf and pitcher development to give me an idea of how it's doing. That way.. I don't have to disturb any rooting it may be doing.

    that's an interesting color and texture at the bottom of that hamata...you could always dip it in fungicide or something just to makes sure. live sphagnum also helps give resistance against fungal infection.

    That looks like a lot of work. I hate repotting. It's such a pain. But I bet your pings will like the change.

    It's all that fills my days. It's basically a job that pays with happy plants. What can I say, that's my kind of income!

    I have rooting gel and powdered rooting hormone. That's about it.. I do have live LFS here. I'll switch it over. See if that helps..

    I hope your Hamata pulls through =\ They need a ridiculous amount of humidity when young...bagging mine and giving it appropriate temps/temp drops seem to be what brought it back from the brink.

    Everything else is looking good! Why, what is that I spy in the second pot in the front row of the seventh picture?
