Well said man. Thanks for the positive advice.
I will be looking forward to the day when I can see my macrophylla back in good condition.
Jeeze that sucks. Looks like it's coming back though, so keep doing whatever your doing now I'd say. I've had mine for a year. It was the size of a penny when I got it. A year later, it's still the size of a penny. Slow doesn't even begin to describe this thing. I'm wishing I'd gotten one with some size as yours had.
Yeah man!! In december if you notice, it reached its peak speed...a leaf per month.... and thats when this happened. And later after the january issue, I also repotted it from a regular plastic pot into a net pot thinking that might help. So overall...everything was against the little guy...first... dehydration nearly to death + repotting and total root system destabilization.
It definitely was a good size. At first I was even doubtful if it is a real macro...I still am... the leaf structure doesn't seem like the one that Doug has and this looks very close to the clone "S" of wistuba. But well...lets see. XTM also goes for 100$ +. I just want this guy to recover.
However, one positive attribute is its slow growth rate....time and time again, I have read about macros being a lot slower than XTM and this one surely fits the bill.
ANyways...lets see... I am going to patiently wait for the guy to recover. My first macro and I want to bring it back to the land of growing.
