Okay..I've had this plant of Tricho. lanceanum that I've had for three years now. It started out in a 2" pot and is now in a 4" pot and the largest mature growth is only like 5" tall at best. The plant seems to be producing new leads that don't seem to be getting bigger than the last one at this point.
The plant seems to be very healthy. The roots are in great shape and I know that this genus like to dry out completely before being watered again. It's grown in intermediate temps..from 58 to about 80.
I don't understand what's going on at this point. Also, this plant seems to grow at a snails pace...leads take forever to mature.
Those that take a long time bug me too. I just set them towards the back of the bench and pay more attention to the ones that are flowering. Before long, it will put up some more growth and bloom.
I wish I know some trick to share, but I have not grown Tricho. lanceanum before. Good luck to you, Clint.
