    What am I doing wrong?

    My D. aliciae (spelled right?) Is barely growing and isnt producing any dew. The humidity is at 80 and it gets pretty decent light. The temp is around 70 F. Whats wrong with my plant? Its sitting in a dish with distilled water in a 1 gallon terrarium in a pot just like schloaty sent me. Not removed in otherwords. And my pygmie is in the same boat! but my VFT and Ping are doing ok. They are all in the same terrarium but in seperate pots.

    Give them time to adjust. If you've had them for a while and they still aren't producing dew, it's your lighting 99% of the time.

    Awhile back there was a topic, a poll, if you will, as to how hobbyists water. As usual, there were diiferent approaches, with logical and valid explanations, with successful results. All that aside, there are some cp's that it is just best not to water from above (even though innature, they all get rained upon). And there are some that it definitely is best to water from above. In a topic specifically regarding D. aliciae and why emergent leaves come in black, as opposed to green, it was brought out that this species needs to have its media flushed (watered from above) to remove whatever is accumulating and causing that blackness (salts?).
