    Wow, that's nuts. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] I trim the bottom of my pot every so often to keep that from happening. It's growing up the sides and actually all over itself too.

    My longifolia grows in a UK greenhouse (some heat in winter, not much), growing in Sphagnum & standing in water all year. It grows fine and sent up a flower scape last year (forget when), although most of the flowers didn't open properly - very disappointing. It certainly didn't have any kind of dry dormancy, just normal seasonal changes in light & temperature.
    Taylor suggests they need plenty of room (eg. flowerbed) to flower, although mine's only in a 4" square pot.

    speaking of this clone have you spec or anyone growing longifolia have short leave life? they brown from the tip in. But many new leaves grow. So, it isn't like the plant isn't happy. Congrats again spec!

    I've got the same problem with mine. I thought i was going to lose it when i first got it, because the few long leaves one by one began turning purplish-brown and drying up, covered with a whitish layer. Now, it's sending up lots of little leaves all through the pot, but the biggest leaves in the middle keep dieing off after about three weeks in the same fashion. I don't know enough about longifolia to know if it's too cold, too hot, too wet, too dry, too bright, or what.
    There's no 'a' in perlite.
