Like the prodigal son I return the the place it all started to throw myself on the wisdom of my betters. My D. capensis are looking very sorry for themselves, I have tried flushing the media through with clean water, I have changed the media, I have moved some to other brighter locations but no matter what I do all new growth comes up looking... odd (see images) even in the growth stage you can see it is going to come up odd and then I get this pointed formation that browns and dies back. I have in the same pots a few that are not showing this odd formation. I let them grow for a bit as I know they can do strange things but all new growth for about 5 months has been like this. So does anyone know the reason behind this.
Hiya I've managed to get some D.intermedia seeds to germinate last year and had lost a few due to forgetting to cover them up during a freak cold snap in April. The two that I have left look a bit worse for wear as one has stunted shrivelled green leaves and the other has been doing well until the other week when the leaf tips started to turn black. I would like to ask what is causing the two disorders? As I'm not sure if it is the shock from the cold snap that they're recovering from or its the wind thats burning the leaf tips. The photos that I've attached have been linked with a facebook account and not sure if they will show for some folk. Suggestions will be appreciated to what is causing these disorders.
