Does anyone have any growing tips for this species. I successfully germinated seeds last spring. The seedlings grew well for a time but became ratty and weak and died off before flowering (I only saw one flower). I have managed to obtain some more seeds (the CPS Seedbank is superb) which have germinated very well indeed. The new seedlings are in a very large and brightly lit lowland terrarium (which I didn't have last time around). Min temperatures are around 19 deg C. It is very humid as the heating is provided by a submersible aquarium heater, but there is very good air circulation provided by a reptile fan and small openings in the tank doors. Does anyone have any advice on how to grow this species. I don't want to lose these plants before I can obtain seed.

Cheers,

Greg
