    FTG,

    When I said 1 inch, I meant all the growth centers were basically crammed right next to each other. The pot (one of those cube things) was bigger, my estimate would be 4 inches wide. It was like brain surgery trying to separate them. But it was from Lowes, what do you expect!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    I took a ride up there after we had chatted the other night and the sales girl told me to save the receipt, all Lowes plants are guaranteed for one year. She also told me that they have to be in the original pots, so save them.

    i bought one of those "bug biting terrariums" once. same deal, it had a cobra lilly, a sun dew, and a vft in it...

    got home, separated them and potted them up in 3 different pots... i feel for ya, jeff. i really do! i know what you will go through trying to separate them!

    now i have a cobra in one pot that's growing, but nothing spectacular as it's outside with all of my sarrs with no special attention given to it, and literally a 6" pot full of d. adelae!

    my belief on the wilting is that the sudden change in humidity is the cause. you can slowly open the lid over time and let them acclimate gradually. i just pulled the lids off and transplanted them right away.

    good luck!

    peace,

    believe it or not, no. at first i had it potted in a 4 inch pot, and the birds kept digging it up. about half a dozen times in all! finally, i potted it in a 6" pot that's about 6" deep, in a mix of lfs, peat pearlite, and orchid bark (if i remember right). i made the mix kind of "airy", hoping that it would help keep the roots cool. so far, it's worked. of course, it's been kind of cool this summer in ohio, with lots of rain, so i am sure that has helped a bit.

    I have several small pots with various plants in them. One is a beautiful Japanese bonsai pot with dente and spatulata in it. They might be a little crammed, but they don't seem to mind and they look wonderful. If you really don't have to move them, why not let them grow together... like a little mini bog. They compliment each other very well. If tons of roots come out of the bottom of the pot, think about repotting.
