    'Black Dragon' izumae x truncata

    Some pics of my izumae x truncata
    It's starting to settle in well and is growing fast.
    The leaves are a lot smaller than when I received the plant.
    It's growing in vermiculite, pearlite, shultz orchid mix, and a small amount of lfs to hold moisture.
    I have been fertilizing for 3 months with neptunes harvest fish and seaweed combined with maxsea 16-16-16, at half streangth all together or 1/4 strength each. Seems to be working well so far.

    5 in. pitchure


    whole plant, notice the large older leaves compared to the newer small leaves. the new leaves are about 3 in.


    Peace,

    Nice plant. Where do you grow it?
    We can go for days without food, but we can't pass 5 minutes without air. REMEMBER TO BREATH!!!

    Trouble breathing? Let me know.

    LLeopardGGecko, the window is SE facing.
    All the plants in the window get a few hours of direct sun every day.

    Thanks for the window info. I may seem a bit of a bother these days asking about windowsill growing! I know in several threads I've been asking window-related questions, the reason being that I'm moving to San Diego this December and I'll be growing many of my Neps outside on a patio and several other CPs (including Neps) in a windowsill that's facing northwest (if I'm remembering correctly). From what I observed it seemed to get a few hours of direct sunlight in the late afternoon, so hopefully I'll be able to grow my plants without any problems.
