Leaves growing straight upward
I've read that when the stems and leaves point straight upward (and grow that way) that it is usually a light issue??
I've had my two standards (don't know what kind they are cause they haven't bloomed in past 4 months since I adopted them) and even though I place them under my lamp at least 10 hours each day as well as having them in the window - they continue to grow directly upward.
All I see is the purple veins on the underneath of the leaves. These stems are healthy and very crisp (as described in another post) but I think I am missing something. I find another new leaf set on them each week. There must be twenty five large leaves on one plant with about 15 babies and it's what I would consider a large plant. The largest leaves are about two and a half inches wide and two and a half to three inches long. I have them both in a 4" pot with light soil.
They are watered from the top about once a week with light fert water (same water I use on all the rest of my collection).
I think the width of the pot is good but it's hard to tell the width of the plant since they grow straight upward as opposed to gently sprawling outward.
What am I missing?
