    N. Ventricosa - Lowe's death cube?

    I have a Ventricosa from a Lowe's death cube (botanical wonders ID'd it for me).

    It's out of the death cube, re-potted in equal parts peat, perlite, vermiculite, and orchid bark. It's currently in a large glass jar with saran wrap on the top with some holes in it, with a fan blowing over the top to get some air circulation.

    I've pulled back the saran wrap about half an inch today.

    How long do I need to stretch out the acclimation process for getting it out of humidified captivity? I don't want to shock it.

    For me I would have taken it totally out. I always do.

    Never a problem for me.

    I put my ventricosa from 80% humidity and up onto a 50% or less windowsill with no trnasition. Ventricosa is an easy plant.

    I'm willing to bet it wasn't removing it from the cube that killed it.
