Hey folks I scored one each of these rarer ant plants and I was wondering who else here might also be growing them?
I have three environments in which I can grow them, cold highland, (on Wistuba's site he shows some family of these ant plants growing epiphytically on top of a mountain). I also have space in my intermediate and true lowland.
I do want to maximize growth so I can divide them and give starts to my uncle who is a lifelong plant freak. He gave me my first Nep cutting about 6 years ago. I spent my child hood growing up and peering into his hundreds of small terrariums (hippies made terrariums out of anything glass) and hiding behind huge specimen plants scattered about his house. He's always talking about rare ant plants but only owning the common one from the plant shops but never gutsy enough to order anything through the mail. I hate to think of the things he's missed over the years.
Anyway, I plan to mount them epiphytically on some dried branches but any tips you can give on cultivation and propagating them would be greatly appreciated! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
