the white stuff came with the plant. there is a little bit of new growth from that tiny point you see.
interesting, I'll do the same, thanks!!
I'll go and buy a terra-cotta pot right now!
Super grateful for everyone who's contributed to this post.
Here's what it is right now, I"ll def go buy a wide terra-cotta pot. put in more perlite, and lace the top with long-fiber sphagnum. Here's the set up right now
These are some of my plants in April.
In May I was recording root temperatures in excess of 100F (38C), I grow both alpine and coastal forms with root temperatures regularly exceeding 85F (30C) in the summer months
They are planted in shallow undrained trays ( mainly black ) of live Sphagnum or Sphagnum / perlite depending on the amount of Sphagnum I want to use at the time. I flood the trays and top up regularly, rarely will the water lever drop more than an inch (2.5 cm).
oooooooohhhhhh myyyyyy goooooooodddd, you have a meadow of darlingtonias i want to just jump in.
Thanks for the information on root temperature. I shall stop worrying about it.
how old r ur plants?

Most of what you see were replanted in 2011. I have been growing that clone for 31 years.
