Okay... I did the research, I know the soil, water, temp, light... and I have ordered a N. ventricosa. I am 98% confident that I won't kill it with a week.
What I was wondering is if anyone has any other words of wisdom from their years of growing or maybe killing- what to avoid is just as helpful as what to do- these plants.
There are some things that the books just don't tell you, somethings that you learn through experince, this is what I am looking for so... Fire away.
