|The second stalk that it's growing won't push the first one aside. *They grow happily together.[/QUOTE]|
not in the problem i'm having , the lil one keeps growing and its pushed the mother plant so much that the mother plant is shaped like an upside down stem and it is lieing on the floor that i put its pot on , hope it grows ok , it does'nt seem to be dieing though .
Dustin, these guys can grow in just about anything. I planted one in the ground (very clayey) and it grew. But good draining soil with lots of fertilizer will make em grow big and fast.
Goldtrap, as long as the second stalk grows fine, don't worry too much about it.
Would some sand and perlite and peat or potting soil be suitable? I think I am over-reacting and treating them like orchids! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
I use a mix of peat, sand, bark chips, potting soil, and lots of time release fertilizer. And yes, you're overeacting [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] But pot them up right away. Once they're planted, it'll take them no time to grow.
Yay, I be up and on the soil right away! Hmm...I have old soft wood that would be nice to have it in there for extra nutrients and a natural appearance.
They live! Muhaaaaahahah! I can't wait to see leaves....the prtective mottled black and red thingy is cool enough, they remind me of a Skunk cabbage spathe.
Excellent! But man, to think, all this time it wasn't growing cus it wasn't planted lol [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
I have several Sauromatum venosum plants in the yard and their stems always grow in a half-bent over fashion. They are very sensitive to changes in soil moisture and temperature. If they dry out even the slightest in the hotter days of summer, they tend to die back. Most of the time the bulbs are fine. I keep them in very dry pots during the winter, or dig them up and keep them wrapped in dry sphagnum over the winter. Sauromatums are prolific reproducers, so I'm less careful with these, it seems. My other voodoos, though, all get dug up and stored away for the winter. All of these bulbs rot very easily if they are damp and cold.
