    N. Ventricosa X TM help

    Hi ya'll... several weeks ago I saw that my N. vent X TM was browning its leaves at the base a lot faster than usual. In a panic, I moved it to my new cooler HL chamber where it has been for several weeks. The plant has sped up a lot, but Still, it wont stop sacrificing its leaves and Im afraid that the dead growth will catch up to the growth point.. Am I over worried, or is there a serious problem here? Please help!

    Photobucket

    See the rapidly dying leaf?

    Temps: 75 in day, 55 at night
    Humidity: high, never goes below 65%...the other HLers seem to love it
    Filtered artificial light 13-14 hours a day

    Thanks,
    Lance

    Is this an established plant or a cutting that you're trying to root?

    If it's growing new leaves, then I wouldn't worry too much. I kept my vent x xTM in a LL terrarium and it did great. It loved the humidity. It's a very hardy cultivar and likely to do well no matter what the conditions - though it bears mention that both xTM and ventricosa are HL.

    The question is, how many leaves are left, and is the plant still growing?

    Id say theres about 7 leaves left...but now, the second leaf has died, so 6 leaves . The plant is still growing, but if the leaves keep dying, the growth can't out run it...

    How tall is it? It's probably forming a wood vine to help support the top weight.
