Recently, I jumped on a sale of U. Reniformis (though I have not grown any of the orchioides utrics previously). As with any new type of plant, I am overly paranoid and have a few questions that I haven't found answered in the guides here (which I have read religiously). I feel like I'm hypothetically pretty comfortable, or at least informed, about caring for it, but just in case:
What does it look like if it's rotting!? How will I know?
Is it normal if it loses a few of its old leaves in adjustment?
How dry does it actually need to be during the winter/approximately how cold is "too cold?"
I've got it in the container it was shipped in currently (which is woefully undrained, oops...), until I get a couple of net pots (currently in the mail, should be here in a couple days). It's in a windowsill which drops to about 40 degrees, and I try to keep it moist but not too terribly wet. It actually does look like it's making 3 or 4 tiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnyyyyyyyyyyy new "leaves," though, so that seems promising! I'm planning on grabbing some live sphagnum in the spring for this and some of my neps, so eventually it will be in a little bit more preferable media (right now I've got it in my usual nepenthes mix: LFS, perlite, orchid bark, so I reckon it should be just fine for now).
