    Hi Jorge, you seem familiar to me. Either we traded plants, or I bought some from you before. Truncata can be a slow grower when young. they don't really pick up speed until they get a little bigger. One thing to watch out for is having too dense of a soil medium. I grew one "dwarf" truncata for years before giving it a happier home.

    Hello Srduggins! Maybe we have traded plants before or, as you say, maybe you have purchased something in the past in my store.

    Thank you very much for your advices... I will wait this Spring to see if my plant will develope faster and bigger, if that does not happen... i will go for the wrong soil theory and will change the soil...

    All i hope is that this Srping can bring al ot of growth to my truncata...

    Cheers,

    I still haven't learned to NOT come into a thread discussing a CP that I don't currently grow.

    Now I want a N. truncata

    I really like that red fuzz they have. I do think I could provide some nice conditions for a N. truncata if I ever got one. We'll see....
