    Default Richard Mueller cross help

    I'm not sure what's going on with this plant but the new growth has just taken a turn for the worst. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong? Am I not watering it enough? Is the pot too big? Is the medium wrong? I need some help here as I don't want it to die. The leaves look wrinkled some I'm thinking it's the watering but I don't know how I can give it more water when it's still wet. Should I stick it in S/H?

    the new roots look healthy. I let my RM crosses that are in bark go totally dry between waterings. Wrinkly leaves means lack of water but this could also be from root loss from rots that are rotted. Had you let it dry between watering?

    It didn't have too many roots (maybe 3-4) to start with but I did let it dry properly between watering. About every 3 days these days.

    The leaves on the newer growths didn't open property (humidity issue?) but are still kinda wrinkled.

    Some of my other catts have some wrinkled leaves but this guy is the worst of them all.

    the new roots look fine Richard. Let it continue as it is....the new roots should continue to grow and supply the plant
