    My Lance Leafs HATE high temperatures. Well, let me rephrase that...SOME of my Lance Leafs hate high temperatures. I have several plants that begin to shrivel when it gets hot and the humidity goes down. However, I have several other plants that do very well in hot and not very humid conditions. I guess it depends on the plant...

    Whenever mine demonstrate the decline described in this thread, I always find mites infesting the plants. I then submerge the plants for a few weeks, and this often resolves the issue and the plants resume healthy growth. Examine the underside of the leaves with a high-powered loupe for mites (there are several types). If you have very good vision you may be able to notice them without magnification, if you know what to look for.

    Joseph!!! I remember you commenting about this phenomenon before, only I couldn't find the topic and barely remember you saying something about the quality of the growing conditions, leading up to the rapid decline thing. Waht else did you say?

    There was a different topic. I think you were saying something about the growing conditions that most people have, relative to how you grow yours, is the difference. That's not coming out right. Um... whatever you are doing, as a whole, is preventing that sudden decline. Maybe it was on CPUK? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Using a powerful magnification, I looked under the leaves and on top for insects, mites, fungus, etc. (like I would know) and did not see any. But I think I am going to drown it anyway for 2 weeks. After the drowning process, can I repot it or should I wait for regrowth? It has over grown its current pot.

    I would repot. Start everything afresh.
