    Heli Media ??

    I've been growing my heterodoxa x minor in 100% live LFS.. It seems to be growing awefully slow. Should I change what I've got it growing in? I see a lot of pics with people growing thiers in peat/perlite mixes. Which is best for something teeny tiny like what I've got?

    hey mass, well helis typically grow slow no matter what. i like to use a 50/50 LFS and perlite mix. If you recently got it and potted it up, i would wait a little because they dont like to have to much root disturbance. just my opinion.

    i would also vouch for 50 LFS, 50 Perlite/Pumice/Lava Rock--your choice.
    and helis by nature are a PITA when it comes to growth. usually though it comes all at once, then does nothing, then comes back all at once, at least from my experience.
