    I've seen plenty of more desperate cases than that one. LOL. All the same, a repot wouldn't be a bad idea.

    Let it over grow that pot any longer and it will probably wrap roots around you....................AL

    Yah, probably time. Are you keeping that plant in a pet shop? Lots of humidity around the fish tanks?

    Yes I am I have most of my collection here (around 30), it stays very warm and very humid if I am not running the de-humidifier the humidity goes up to like 80% or more but I keep it down around 50% (my landlord makes me)
