    truncata gets big!

    For those of you who don't know, truncata gets big.
    I had to move it to water my neps.
    Big, but my showcase plant for visitors.

    That's odd. The newest leaf on your truncata is red. What kind of light is it growing in? Mine will only turn yellow in full sun.

    they start out red and turn green as they mature.
    I never have yellow leaves.
    this plant gets a lot of light, 2 40watt t8's and full sun in the morning.
    I think truncata is one of the neps that will adapt well to much light and low humidity.
