    They like to dry out fast like catts. You may want to try fine bark/perlite until the plant gets larger. Then medium bark/perlite. Spag in a clay pot wouldn't be a bad choice for a small plant (at least in my warm climate).

    Gosh that was quick! Thanks!I have some perlite! I was expecting it to be small, but it really is TINY! I'll have to be careful as the weather over her is dull and cool at the mo. I got this on a whim! I loved the colour! But I would hate to have my 1st fatality, Judi
