    85F is what's killing them. they typically do not see anything above 75F in the wild and at nights, the temps drop down to 45F.... humidity is also an issue. maybe adding live LFS will increase the relative RH in the pot.

    Highland plants are very harsh....may take months to recover. And by the time when it fully recovers, it will be summer again, and the plant will go into further decline. I strongly suggest a cool basement in the meantime. best of luck.

    Dunno, I just grew 'em on my windowsill in winter and out on the balcony late spring through early fall. They did great except the flowers would always abort. Got hit by a unexpected cold snap in early October and they never recovered from it.

    Thanks for the info, now just to find the seeds in that pot then....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
