Success with N.northiana?

Recommended Posts

I've had N.northiana for nearly 3 years. I grew it enclosed, but it likely lacked enough heat, with being grown at typical household temps. From the reading I've done, it is considered to be hard to kill, but hard to grow well. Most of the success stories are from growers using 100% clay-based substrates. I've given mine higher temps and added a fired clay substrate to its mix. What do those of you with success think is key to getting good results from this species?

It grows on damp limestone rock in the wild. Not the easiest of conditions to replicate. The soil is non-peaty even though there is some decaying vegetation on the surface.
