    Ever since I put all of my highlanders in my basement they all show much improvement.
    I will keep my fingers crossed though. This picture is a couple Wistuba clones I have that are growing in the same chamber right next to the red hamata. They are young, but seem happy. They are top dressed with live sphagnum also.

    Exactly what I wanted to say as well. TC probably might be the culprit. What's the source of the plant? Wistuba?? might be the insufficient weaning that is causing it...which means its still pretty vulnerable and needs some good hardening.

    It is from seed. The Wistuba clones are from TC.
    I think it is just going threw a strange phase. I think it will be ok.

    It looks like it may have suffered damage to the original growth tip and has activated nodes giving rise to multiple points of growth. I have seen this once or twice, even on very small plants. My culprit was a small rogue slug that had interloped in on the live sphag I had top dressed with....

    Jmatt, I would have said heat stress if not for you stating that you grow it together with other hamata plants which are doing very well. My new intermediate/highland Neps will produce multiple nodes during the hottest months here. After which they take another 4-6 months to start growing properly again and become acclimatised to my conditions.

    Hehe, it does sound like most of us think it could be TC chemicals. But if it is a seed-grown plant, then it might be stress.

    I would guess pest damage to the original growth point, (e.g. snail/slug).

    The good news is the new growth points look healthy. I know your conditions are are right for this plant, so I would rule out environmental stress. If this was July or August it might be a different story with the increased temperatures. You have also had this plant for some time and it was growing strong before under your care.

    I hope it recovers quickly for you.

    See you Saturday at the NECPS meeting.
