    Wow. While I have some ascendens that might be as happy as yours (maybe) - my happiest villosa is not there at all. Since they're in the same pots - I guess that rules out media issues or pot size...

    What's your current photoperiod & distance to lights?

    Any other ideas?
    All the best,

    i have recently gone back to my summer photoperiod, so for the last couple weeks they have been 18/6, before that they were at 14/10 or maybe 12/12,

    same pots, same media... distance to light is ummm they are on my top rack so i would say 10-12" would be a good estimate.

    umm monthy trichoderma... ummm humidity is 70-80%ish, temps are 60ish at the moment, constant gentle airflow... daily top waterings

    other then that, i dunno Ron...

    Wowza - that's some photoperiod! I've recently been increasing my hours also - although from a much lower level. I believe it was A. Fleischmann who mentioned something about villosa / ascendens doing poorly in his winter greenhouse because the plants want more hours of light ..... Some of my plants are edging toward looking a bit better recently - maybe the hours are helping...

    Hmmm - some of mine may be the same distance - but considering the lights, your's are getting a much higher intensity. IIRC, NaN has some growing outside on his deck...

    Daily top watering?? Wow - I'm just finishing doing my weekly top watering - hmmmmm Very helpful - thank you sir....

    With the way they're growing, I wouldn't be shocked to see you post about a flower stalk.... Your pics also do an excellent job of highlighting some of the differences between the species - much easier than differentiating ascendens & graomo...

    Wow, that is just incredible! I think those are the most vigorous-looking South American dews I've that are being grown indoors in the US.
    I'm flat-out embarrassed at my attempts to grow these spcs.
