    soil and water sound great..
    dont repot.

    no tank.
    no one gallon plastic thing .
    no windowsill.
    no indoors.
    no worry about humidity.

    yes outdoors.
    yes water tray.
    yes full sunlight.
    yes just give it water and leave it alone..it will recover if its wants to.


    you are over-thinking! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    sun, water, outdoors, no cover..thats the best conditions you can give it.
    continually messing with it will only make it worse.
    if its still in the tank take it out..

    Ok. It will be done. I will not let this thing die.

    I've been thinking out what I will put in the 10 gallon anyways. How would I raise the humidity for a scorpion that comes from the jungles of Africa?

    ooh..one thing I just thought of..

    perlite..some it comes with fertilizer added!

    I bought a big bag of Miracle Grow perlite..thinking "perlite is perlite, its all the same."
    wrong...
    (the "miracle grow" name should have tipped me off! but it didnt at the time..I never imagined anyone would add fertilizer to perlite!)
    so the miracle grow perlite is useless for CPs..it has fertilizer added..
    are you sure your perlite is "pure"??

    My perlite says nothing about anything added in with it so I guess it's pure.

    I use regular perlite from WalMart. Have been forever and my CPs always did fine.

    Hey all, I have a P. Primuliflora that is wilting and dying from the leaf tips back. I have had a problem with these before. My terrarium conditions are posted under the topic "post pictures of your terrarium here." Is it the heat? too much light? should i be overhead watering it or not? should i mist it or not?

    Let me know,
    Jeff

    P. primuliflora does best when the light is indirect or during the morning. It does well "open tray. It doesn't like too much light. If kept covered, it will be prone to mold. Terrariums are really the worst of all worlds for this plant. Doesn't need misting. Next time you get one, just put the pot in a plastic container, on a window sill, SE exposure, with no cover.
