    Rejects turning out really well

    Some background...these N. campanulata plants were the "leftovers" from a mass order in July because the growth tips have turned black. I potted them straight into burnt earth and in 2.5 months, they each produced three new leaves. Burnt earth rocks!

    N. campanulata rejects




    2.5 months later

    I can't tell from the pictures, but did it start a whole other growth point? Or did the blackened leaf just die back and growth resumed? I've been told that sometimes the fungicide/insecticide used importation. If this is the case, it generally only affects the outer leaf and growth is normal after it unfurls.

    On a side note, when I read your title I saw it as "rejects" as in "Refuses to turn out well;" so imagine my surprise when there are such nice plants inside! lol.

    I was wondering why you put all those in one pot-now it makes sense(not that there is anything wrong with doing that in the first place...)
