what exactly are those who are having success doing. i had paradoxa for awhile before my plant stand colapsed it was doing wonderfully in what i considered intermidiate/highland conditions for my neps. warm(but not hot days) and cool nights it did great in an open tray. plantstand collpsed, the paradox was uninjured, the only spot i had availible for it was in an open toped 10 gal tank where it was moved to within a half hour of the collapse. temps light and water level stayed the same and it keeled over in about 2 weeks.
been reading over posts from the last 6 or 8 months. lots of cool pics of the complex, lots of talk about soils but lil mention of humidity and temps other than using a "hot tank"
on the topic of soils Tamlin brought up the fact that when these go dormant you need to get the soil to dry fast. my thought is a tall terra cotta pot with a loose mix. any houghts? ive used terra cotta with success with other CPs, yah just gotta use brand new pots and strictly RO water and ive never had an issue with salt build up. infact i can get some Utrics to grow on the outsides of these pots
