about D. linearis

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, i got this plant since may of this year. Was very little as it arrived, but after some good feeding it started to grow well, reaching about 3 cm in length of the leaves. Now it's shrinking, i know this plant has a short vegetative period, so the cause could be the plant is going into dormancy despite the hot temperature? I live in north Italy and winter can be cold, usually -4 C, or never go below 0, are these temperature enough cold? Does anyone knows if leaf cutting work?

Thank you all!DSC_1238.JPG.4965579181d3330f5b9f67927e573fa9.JPG

Ciao Argo! Purtroppo la pianta e' morta causa la botrite, ma riprovero' in futuro. Varie linearis crescono in terreni alcalini, come quella che avevo, ma chi  me l'ha venduta (membro del forum) e un membro del forum mi hanno consigliato di usare la torba, io usavo torba-perlite-pomice-quarzo in parti uguali, non mi piacciono i mix troppo compatti.

 

Hi Argo, the plant died a cause of botrytis. Some linearis (like mine) grows in alkaline soil, but the seller (forum member) and a forum member too recommended me of using peat, so my mixture was peat-perlite-pumice-quarz sand in equal parts, i like open media.
