    I wouldn't worry about the U. longifolia, like U. bisquamata & U. subulata, it's not possible to kill this species.

    Oh heck your building some character there. I wish I knew more specifics but cannot help in that area. It does sound like you need some heat though !

    Oh, the humanity! I love it.

    Allow me to introduce myself as the CP grim reaper. When I show up, CPs just drop dead!

    These were all taken at various times over the past five months or so. Many of these plants have passed away! Eek!

    Have you examined any of those damaged leaves with a magnifying glass to see if any parasites might be present.

    Seriously though..I feel your pain and admire your courage in sharing with us. As others chime in on what my be troubling them we may all learn something that we can use to help our own plants.
    hang in there Thez
    Thanks I've moved it just recently so hopefully it perks up...

    Yeah, I really really really hope they perk up in a couple months when it warms up again.

    Thanks Raven.

    thanks for putting yourself out like that for me

    And ah...I see, so I'll just let it stew more in its own juices then...

    Having plants do poorly sucks doesn't it. But your doing way better than I am. I killed all the easy plants. Lost all my D. Capensis, D. Adelae, and N. Ventricosa.

    Hey, you aren't a true grower until you've killed your share of plants.

    Here's my contribution:
