    Hi
    I have never fertilized my plants- just allowed them to catch their own meals! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    They have had a variety of lighting conditions. One in a lowland tank with tube lighting. Another in my neps house where I kept them in the shadier part with my rajah. And I have tried others on a E. facing windowsill. All plants remain small & unhappy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    cheers

    Bill,

    Maybe you have a crappy clone? Most people who grow these end up with 100s of plants within a couple of years, without doing anything. I don't know what kind of pots you are using, but I think they do better in more wide, shallow pots, so their roots can spread out and bud. Sphagnum seems to work great for them, but funny enough, I seem to remeber them growing in sandy clay in Nature(or is that schizandra?)
    I have seen your name for a long time and know you are a superior grower, so maybe this is your achilles heel plant..

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Maybe the plants are diseased.

    Mine are responding well to cooler temps in autumn. They are sensitive to humidity, but you can quickly gauge if the temp or humidity is right by the amount of dew on the leafs.

    Thanks for the compliment Joe [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    I will get myself another plant I think & try again. I believe that it was aphids that first caused my plant to deteriorated and its never been the same since despite loads of tiny plantlets which never seem to go anywhere.

    cheers
