So I just purchased some and was wondering if anyone else had it in their viv? How long did it take for it to become established?
I've got some! Awesome plant. I don't have mine in a viv right now. I've got it in a large glass container with a lid that I made into a terrarium. In there, it grows pretty well. I think it does better if it's not in a really wet spot. Maybe midway up so it gets some light and air.
Remember that I'm a plant killer! Maybe you better wait for someone who knows what they're talking about.
If you're brave enough to take my advice, I'll give it.
I would put it in the viv. Attach it or position it so that the length of the stem makes contact with something to grow on. The roots grow out like hairs all up and down the stem. I'd make sure that it got some light, but not way up near the lamp. And I'd make sure it got some air. Maybe midway?
I'll take a pic of the one I have growing in the terrarium, in the morning.
Sorry, no pics this morning. I tried to burn my house down last night and, in the aftermath, didn't get a chance to take pics.
Smoke alarm started going crazy around 2:30 am. House filled with smoke. I'm running around trying to figure out how to get my frogs and cat out safely. Finally make my way to the kitchen to find a large pot of leaf litter on the stove, set on high, burning. OMG... I am now only allowed to cook leaves during the day, on the weekends, lol.
The smoke was crazy! Imagine burning leaves in your house. Covered all the tanks to keep smoke from filling them. Turned on fans and AC to get outside air inside and moving around. Had to sleep with my head under the covers so I could breath.
All critters appear to be in good health today. I have a nasty cough and a headache though.
Anyway, good times, good times.
Sorry for the hijack!
Don't burn down the House Kris. At least, try to have a GOOd excuse, like deep frying the turkey or something, not cooking leaf litter. Glad you and the froggies are ok.OMG I forgot that I was taking pictures. Ok, tomorrow! Seems like there were roots in a week, maybe? Not sure. I wasn't really watching for it.
