    Hi guys,

    Have any of you experienced your D. capensis suddenly stop growing as vigorously, meaning new leaves aren't sprouting as fast as the old ones are dying. I checked mine and saw that a thick bunch of roots were overcrowding the bottom of the pot, so I repotted it into a bigger container as well as cut the roots up to stimulate new growth. Will the plant bounce back?
    Thanks.

    Johnny

    nah it wasn't flowering....I've kept it growing uncovered in a sunny windowsill. It was shooting out lots of leaves for a while and very dewy, but just the last 2 months, it started slowing down growth. Finally, I took it apart to inspect the roots and realized there was a huge mass tangled on the bottom of the pot. I figured that might be the cause of the slowdown so hopefully, it will grow bigger again and sprout new plants from the cuttings.
