    Hello,
    I didn't really want to stick my head out, but no one else has asked... Is that a D. filiformis in your tank? If it is, are you planning on giving it a dormancy? I could be wrong, but I'm pretty certain dormancy is necessary for that species, or are you just skipping dormancy this year because you maybe bought it late in the season? I dunno, I only have a year experience, so don't take me too seriously! Anyways, amazing terrarium!

    MH1, yeah, it is D. filiformis var tracyi. I wasn't aware it required dormancy as a warm-temperate, and Peter's book doesn't mention anything about it. I'll have to do some research though. Right now it seems pretty happy, and really likes the new lights. A large tendril has unrolled about an inch and a half in the last few days, and it is sending up several new ones.

    And yeah, I'm really new to this as well, so I've got a lot to learn. Thanks for the heads up!

    Good to hear it's doing well! I just thought I would say, just in case! It's never nice to lose a plant (I *think* I've killed my binata by leaving it out in the cold and forgetting to bring it in before it froze solid in about -10C... just hope it regrows from the roots! I looked a while ago too, but nothing was ever specific, but reading in between the lines it sounded like it just needed a cool dormancy (like some of the binatas )
