    back in the cube

    i had a lowes cube with 3 species inside. i tried to open it as gradually as my patience would allow. now i have seperate pots for each plant. the sundew seemed to like the cube and i couldnt readily find a tray to sit it in so i just put it back in the cube (fully closed lid). good idea?

    Is that an adelae? I think it would be receiving good humidity, but lack of air circulation may be able to kill due to fungus and all that junk. Maybe you can put it in a terrarium (if you have one) with high humidity and still use the bottom of the cube for water. I'm not sure.

    Here is what to do:
    (First off, where do you live?)
    1. keep it in the sealed tube if it isn't too hot out right now.
    My friend bought a cube from Lowes w/ Adelae in it, hasn't even opened the seal for 3 months and it looks amazing! Dew and plants everywhere- he is growing it indoors under growlights, though, so it only gets to a max of 75 degrees F.
    If it is too warm out, the cube will get extremely hot and the plant will die. I'll post a pic within a month
    2. I'd ditch the water in the cube. The cube doesn't allow any moisture to excape, so no need to worry about it drying out.

    Good luck. I've found this species very easy to grow.
    Happy growing,
    Aaron

    Bad idea!
    Bad idea!

    I tried the exact same thing back in my less experienced, semi-newb days. The plant barely lasted a month before it just totally stopped growing and turned black.

    Get the it out of there and acclimated to wherever you'd like to keep it ASAP.

    (I still have the dead plant preserved in the cube lol. The original moisture is still in there.)

    More light will help your D. adelae more than that cube will. Much more...

    Very bad idea get it acclimated to the new place you want it at and just get it out of there.

    i think i can hear the plant saying "get me out!" haha, but seriously, a death cube is not where that needs to be. slowly acclimate it and put it in a 10 cal terrarium or something that can keep the humidity up.
