when I grew these from seed I kept them just moist, not as wet as my other CP's. I sowed the seeds in peat pots so that the seedling pot could be potted up straight into a bigger pot when the time came. My understanding is that they dislike having their roots disturbed but can maybe tolerate it when very young seedlings. Here in the UK I found that my plants grew better outdoors during the growing season as there they had a plentiful supply of bugs.

I sowed mine in 70% perlite with just a little peat. They should be just damp at the soil surface never wet. I grew them outdoors all winter with no problems but did protect them from the worst of the rain. I found if theyre too warm and too humid they get very leggy.

Thanks for very helpful information i just replant them due to their roots getting longer day by day very fast i put them in 9cm pots 50% sand 20%perlite and 30% peat moss  and i reduce the moisture to 60-70 % I hope whith little luck to success that time!

I put the peat pots into 20cm pots when the plant had filled the peat pot.  They do grow quite large so I hope your 9cm pots will be large enough. Good luck.

Hi i have some updates.... should I keep them inside under artificial light 60% moisture or should I put them outside in shaded place ? I am asking due to the other two in the same size one of the leaves of each one dried , the pots are 7x7 cm size and the plants 4-5 cm wide.IMAG0952.jpgIMAG0953.jpg
