    it's fall in canada, humidity very well could be the problem... but all my 'chids live on big pebble trays, short of building a greenhouse i think my hands are tied on this one... suggestions?

    What do leaves do when they get insufficient light? They grow longer and bigger. Bigger and longer leaves are good, right? Not if they are doing it to compensate for lack of light.
    Same can be said about roots. A robust root network is good, but not if the plant is doing it only in an attempt to "dig" for more water.
    the mix he was in from the store was very different from the mix i put him in, he could just be adjusting i guess... and when i repotted him it was *really* obvious that he had just been repotted before that. all things considered, i'm watching this new new growth like a hawk.
