    N. villosa...A Year in the Life

    Here is a link to a thread I made on another forum, showing pics of my N. villosa over the course of a year, for any of you that might be interested.

    Great growing job their DVG

    I'm wondering if the BE clone will grow at the same ratio as your first one.

    May I ask, what is your growing conditions, such as lighting, temp, humidity, growing medium, bank account number, etc

    By the way, "I wish you luck" and "May the Force Be With You".

    I bought a cactus. A week later it died. And I got depressed, because I thought, Damn. I am less nurturing than a desert.

    That is an amazing transgression, really a beautiful plant. I've never thought of getting a villosa simply because of how slow the have been said to grow. This post inspires to me get one.

    for the record it is commonly said that villosa gets real touchy bout wanting the night time drop to cool temps once it gets older......i have yet to grow it so i cant comment but i might not rush into it if yah dont have the decent drop into cool temps....

    dvg great looking plant, this species is high on my list once i get my chamber built....

    Very nice indeed . . .

    How warm are you keeping the N. villosa during the day?

    Thanks for the kind words,

    As for the growing conditions,

    T5 5000k lighting
    19C daytime temps
    4-7C night temps
    I don't have a device to measure humidity, but it is dry here on the prairies and especially so with winter now here
    The media is roughly half organic to half mineral with a topdressing of lfs to keep the humidity up around the plant
