    Young Graomogolensis Help

    Help, I have a very young D. Gram, and unfortunately I put in it the wrong type of Sphagnum moss half a month ago. I noticed that, but the only type of available moss i had was Mosser Lee. The plant started to retrospective and even dew started coming back, but the new head turned tight before it grew outwards. I did notice that I hadn't watered it in three days, but it still had a little water its tray. I'm not sure what just happened, but it did have a funky smell when I was changing the water. Ill post pics ASAP.

    Apparently, Mosser Lee likes to grow random plants.

    i'll ask a few questions:
    1) what are your humidity levels?
    2) what are your temp levels?
    3) what are your light levels?

    when the growth point turns tight like that, it is very likely that your humidity levels are very low, it also could point to unfavorable temp conditions.

    you should also avoid using the mosser lee LFS, the stuff is just such poor quality. try using the stuff sold as Orchid Moss from Lowes. if you can afford to, top dress the pot with live sphagnum, the sphagnum will act as a microclimate keeping high humidity for your plant as well as letting you know if your conditions are too dry.

    yes. ditch the mosser lee moss. for media, i use 1:1 peat and sand (rinsed) then i use live sphag as a top dressing. i've also used live sphagnum moss only as well, both work fine, but live LFS seems to be better for larger specimens. i treat my graomo as a highland plant, mid to high 70s during the day, then 50s at night. it seems to appreciate it for the most part. ventilation is a plus, but not necessary. best bet is to grow downstairs, but you will need supplementary lighting--strongly suggest power compacts or t5s or T8s at 6700K. i have never heard of anyone growing graomogolensis successfully on a windowsill (which is what i believe you are using right now). you'd have better success growing them in a terrarium.

    Do you think it can survive for another week before I can get supplies?
    also, what's the youngest age I can attempt to propagate it?

    Place a clear plastic cup over it to preserve humidity, that will help immensely. i wouldnt try anything with propagation, leaf or root, until the plant gets about an inch and a half in diameter---then again, if the plant is going to kick the bucket (yours still looks healthy) a hail-mary pass might be necessary.

    I grow mine on the windowsill in winter and outdoors during the summer.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    holy shnaps. i stand corrected then.
    would you mind sharing your specs then NaN? im sure you'd be more help to him than i would be, since the both of you are growing them in similar conditions. i'd love to learn as well.
