Thanks all for the advice. I checked it for pests and the plant is clean. Brokken, thanks for the link, your plants are awesome and there was great information in that thread. I hope to achieve that some day. I purchased this plant without doing my homework, hence the special setup. All of my other plants grow in highland conditions. I am determined to have success with this plant. The photo period is 14 hours per day.
The phrase "inward spiral" peaks my curiosity. What do these plants do during their dormancy (are there living parts)? Can they be forced into dormancy and how dry is the soil during this time (damp, dry)?
These plants, although stunted appear to be actively growing, therefore, I am hesitant to change the growing environment.
