    Yeah, or pumice in the mix is what I usually use, instead of the usual perlite.

    The pitchers are getting big so I don't have to zoom into finger-print size all the time any more :O

    Amazing collection - great to see stuff looking so excellent as they grow up.

    Any closer pics of these guys & their columns? They seem very robust & not about to topple. How old are they?
    All the best,

    Thanks My inermis got jealous of yours and started making uppers too

    I'll try to get pics later today - I think they're about 3 years old now? I'm not exactly sure. After looking at that pic, I thought about maybe cutting off the dead leaves, but then thought to myself... you know, maybe the dead leaves are providing a rigid structure/lattice-work to the stem to actually hold them upright without bending over, so I think I'll leave the dead ones on.

    Yes - mine is now headed out on it's own after doing its part to save frogs ... Thankfully, the mother plant is once-again starting to inflate uppers so I won't be without my inermis fix for long...

    I think those pillars look so cool - like what you'd see on top of the tepuis. Thanks for the closeup pics - I wonder if the dead leaves do provide any actual support?
    All the best,

    You wouldn't see those on the tepuis, just their relative.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
