It likes more warmth, shade and water than the other Micro's and we add a bit of finely divided limestone to the mix for this species. We grow the compots sitting in water an inch deep, then when they're put into 2 1/4" pots we water the freshly potted seedlings every three days year round. Here's a photo of the Phrag. fischeri seedlings after they've been in 2 1/4" pots for 6 months.

It's not easy to grow for me either. I might try again if I could find a
good division. Tom, this one is GRAND!

Hi Angela - This clone should be dividable next spring/summer so if you're interested in a division, you'd be first on the list. Let me know - no deposit required.
