The fact you went on to post a thread and put the blame on someone else's suggestion to try to save a sickly looking specimen that you so proudly brag you "grew" for 7 months makes me wonder why I wasted my time.
If you pull up the private chat, which I can do for you, you can see I suggested you put it in the heated area of your fridge door...AKA the butter drawer or the crisper area. I never said slam the thing right into the fridge. Why would you not take proper temp measurements to see where the high and low maxes out within the refrigeration cycle? If you have a fridge that is 48 degrees...then you need to look into cleaning the coils off the back..or get another fridge. My fridge runs between 35-39 degrees. I would't be doing any placement of plants at those temps. Considering we talked about this the day before yesterday..that is proof alone you didn't do the homework or try any acclimation into this environment.
The moss could barely survive...why would you think a UHL'er like villosa was going to thrive in upper intermediate conditions?
I also told you to put that thing up in better light...but to gradually work it into the main footprint so you didn't shock it. Now if you toasted the plant instead..would that have been my fault too? Would there have been another thread flaming this so called "member"?
I was trying to be of help to you...not a martyr for the death of your plant mang. The fact is that you decided to pick and choose what information you wanted to use on the cultivation of this plant, and your decision not to give this plant the proper conditions ultimately ended in this result. Brush it off and grow some intermediates.
