    Hey all,
    This is probably the first problem I had with my Truncata.

    The plant has produced a new large leaf but it seems that the side leaf is wilting. I just watered this plant yesterday and the previous week. What seems to be the problem? Does it need to be in a larger pot?

    (The plant is in a 6" diameter pot; the plant is 16" in diameter)

    Heres a pic of it:

    I've had that happen many times, I do not know what causes it, but the plant has never been effected negatively from it. I would suspect it is lose of tugor pressure and the heavy leaves folds a bit.

    If that is the case, would it be better to water this one more than once a week?

    Cheers,

    Hi!
    I am also growing a Truncata in a Terrarium.
    It must not be a problem because when the leaf is acting like this ,it is because it is heavy.The Truncata will continue to grow with no problem and no slow down.
    It Happens me also when the leaf is beginning to grow big.It wilts but after it continues to form its naturals shape.
    Low sun radiations or neon could contribute to let appear this problem. To have a truncata near a window or under neons is not the same as having the plant under direct sun light! Sun Light makes leafes more stronger and hard!
    test yourself!
    Bye!
