Cool I値l get some sluggo then, but I値l repot her anyway as the media looks old. The neo I値l leave be but I値l add some sluggo since they came from the same place.

Good idea. Little slugs become big slugs when they have a nice plant to munch on. If the Den isn't showing growth (likely case this time of year) try not to disturb roots when you're changing the medium... if there is some stuck to roots (likely) just give a good bath under the faucet to wash off whatever might be living there, but don't try to clean it all off. the roots.

Thanks for the tips! I do see little green canes so it might still be growing, I値l check for terminal leaves on the canes. We池e still getting weather in the 90痴 so it will be awhile until we start getting cool (SF Bay Area). Regardless I値l try to minimize messing with the roots as mush as possible.

Also note that this species doesn't particularly like to dry out, even if it loses some leaves. If it gets chilly, then maybe cut back water a little, but not too severely. Also, it does like good water Depending on what part of the SF Bay area you're in, mostly not a problem. (Mine did better when I switched it to RO, but southern Californai water is not wonderful.)

My water isn稚 as hard as San Jose water but I also have access to lab quality water that I bring home when it 兎xpires. So use that on weekends when I water with MSU fertilizer or some kelpak type stuff.
