    Thumbs down

    Ok Guys, I'm at my wits end. I have my Raf in with my Gracilis (growing great), my Mirabilis (growing great), Coccinea, truncata and Judith Finn (all also growing great).
    However, my Raf is just not growing, in fact, it's slowly withering.
    Here are the conditions:
    Very humid (in a tank), very warn (around 90 day, 80 night)
    Enough light to turn all nep leaves slightly red (except brand new ones, they seem more used to the higher light level)
    It's potted in LFS (like all the others).

    WHAT GIVES!?!

    Slowly withering doesn't sound good.. perhaps something is wrong with the root system.

    Unhappy

    Tony,
    Any idea what could be wrong with the roots? What should I look for? I really don't think the pot is too small....it's in a 5 inch pot, and the plant is only 6 inches in diameter.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Sounds like a fungal disease. When you say withered, does it look like drying up?

    George, yes, it looks like it's drying up. I don't have it on the tray method...should I? I have been watering it every week, and the LFS stays moiste the whole week because it's in a tank. Does it need to be sopping wet? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    I don't keep it on a tray method. what i do is mist all the plants 2 times a day leaves and soil. and water 2 times a week. keeping the soil mix wet but the soaking week. is it in pure l/f/s moss. you might want try a mix of orchid bark, charcol,l/f moss and peat moss. 1:1:1:1 mix. one thing i noticed w/ just using l/f moss the roots seem to rot in just that
