I think the key to the bellina is that it loves to be kept pretty warm. The room is 70 F 21 C and the mat is keeping the plant about 15 degrees higher and it seems to appreciate it. It was fine all summer. The fall and winter started its problem.

    Hi Traci you done a good job I must say congratulation meanwhile just keep it warm, crown rot will take time to recover depending the atmosphere and how you taking care of this plant. My experience It's took at least about 6 to 7 months to produce the new keiki sometimes. All the best.

    Thanks Azizan, I had read it was hot growing. Didn't realize I guess how hot growing it is.

    Thank you Zainal, I am going to keep it under the fluorescent light and the heat mat throughout the winter to make sure it stays warm. Once the summer comes and the room is kept at least as warm as the heat mat does I will likely turn the heat mat off.
