    Thumbs down

    Have you ever been so TIRED but didn't realise it until you knock your plant over? That's what I did with my baby capensis (from root cutting)!

    Considering that fellow Singaporeans have got such great difficulty in growing this species, I really felt like slapping myself...

    That was two days ago...the capensis recovered the next day after I covered it with a plastic cup to help it overcome shock with extra humidity.

    THEN, I knocked it over again JUST NOW...
    ...now my forehead's flatter than ever...

    Come to think of it, I knocked over my spatulata as well as my filiformis earlier this week too...
    ......

    Welcome to the butterfinger club. I am the president! I hope your plant recovers. Normally I would tell you that D. capensis is a tough survivor, but this is apparently not the case in Singapore! Best of luck with your plant.

    What I've been doing for the past month or so is to put the Capensis in an air-conditioned room for the night. Now, it's producing more leaves and has dew on them. The flower stalks also don't die prematurely anymore. However, because of the lack of light (I think) the tentacles on the new leaves aren't as red as the old ones.

    It's worth a try, Cindy.

    Sure! When I do make leaf cuttings, I'll pass some to u. But for now, I hope to allow the plant to grow a bit first. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Well, apparently not here [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The heat at night is probably a problem.
