I cut the withered old leaves away and then cut the...

Re: Slooooow Veinte Cohol pups

Allright, thanks!
When I watered them yesterday I only poured carefully in the centre of the pot, at the foot of the plant, and no water drained out for a long time. So it might also be the soil...

Slooooow Veinte Cohol pups

Hi everyone,

My container-grown Veinte Cohol just started its 4th pup. :woohoonaner:

However, the 3 other pups are growing at a glacial speed. The largest one (bottom left on the picture) is a year...

Re: 2 stems?

I've seen the same happen 2 years ago with a sikkimensis seed.
Both grew up fine and were separated when they where about 2ft in height. Unsurprisingly they were -and still are- noticably smaller...

Re: Containers: width vs height?

Thanks for sharing all of your experiences and advice! The two plants I repotted into the 24 gallon and 29 gallon pots have each pushed out their first pup now. Safe to say they are doing quite well!...

Re: Containers: width vs height?

Thanks for the tip! Do you line the insides with plastic, or are they made entirely out of wood?

Re: New addition to a young collection!

Update:

Both plants are thriving after a slow, sad winter. Almost one new leaf per week now but they stay tiny! Soon I'll repot them and put them on a regular feeding schedule to try and get them to...

Just a follow up:
Today I finally released my tallest Namwa from its small container and repotted it to a new 110L / 29 gallon one. The surrounding plants kind of obsure the view but you get the...

Done! I have planted my Veinte Cohol into this 24 gallon bucket. My taller Namwa is too stout and will need a deeper pot. I'll keep looking for an alternative......

Re: Containers: width vs height?

Thanks for the reply, scottu! The height is only about 13 or 14 inches.
