Growing Roridula in Turkey
Posted 13 May 2009 - 06:49 AM
I put my roridula pot in front of the window and it is sunny from morning till noon in summer.. i leave it outer side in days, and take inside at nights..and i water it very few once in 2 days or one day.. i dont allow water in the bottom..
Whats your opinions about its conditions at my home? And whats your scale rule about watering? I am waiting for your help..

I havent done very well growing roridula so cant really help but hopefully some of the other members can give you some more information. In the meanwhile it might be worth doing a search to find some old threads on how to grow it.

Any Mediterranean growers out there with comparable advice?

I live in Ankara and now it is beginning of the summer.. average temperatures 30 celsius at day time and 10-15 celsius at night (summers) .. in winter terrestrail climate, cold air with frosts, mostly minus values..
And also what are your watering tips? How can i determine if water is enough or not?
I am waiting for your advices.. Thank you..

When it flowered, I moved it inside in a stupid attempt to monitor the moisture better. I read that they hate to stay wet, but it would droop if it dried out, even a little. It hated the move and died right away. I got a few seed out of the deal but they haven't germinated for me. It was a huge plant - gorgeous - I still miss it.
Next time I get one I won't move it and I won't be afraid to water it. Sometimes you just have to trust your instincts!
Hope this helps -
