Looks shy lol.

Very curious here. What is self watering concept for this? Brachys usually like to dry in between so I am wondering how long you have grown this one in this system?

Hi everyone.
The self-watering system I use is made by lechuza, a German brand. It consists of 2 pots. In one there is the plant, in the other is the water. Both pots are conntected by a thread that transports the water. Usually I fill half of the water reservoir.
I own every variety of the brachypetalum section. They all have been in the system for more than a half year.

Interesting pots. What type of water do you use? How do you fertilize?
