I found with my 2 plants from Sam that acclimating from greenhouse to indoors takes a bit of time and during this period they can be prone to fungal infection. They also hate repotting. These 2 factors can cause some older foliage to die off, experience cell collapse, etc. keep an eye on the leaf tips.Lo
viewing again, noting how luscious and perfect the foliage is. I realize it’s big...I use big smooth river stones in my plastic pots to balance...what about slipping it down into a larger (porous/breathable) cache pot? I do this a lot...so far has worked. I know nothing of parishii’s specific requirements but am feeling all bold because I’ve got a roth opening! Any tips for not immediately failing with this species?
I’m using normal clear plastic pots with very open/ porous mix. A good amount of charcoal and hydroton for aeration - always a good amount of inorganics to avoid repotting. You should see a flush of root growth in spring and good steady foliage growth. A very fast growing & rewarding multi imo. If repotting is absolutely necessary I think late Feb/March is best. They seem to be sensitive to these type of setbacks and it can thwart blooming, which is why none of mine have bloomed... yet! Lol
