Hints for Maid Marion?

Posted by fredg78756 8 (My Page) on

I just can't seem to get my Maid Marion to do much. Are they hyper-sensitive? The leaves dry out, implying lack of humidity but I've got her in the same area with the others that are thriving. Even new leaves come out and within a few days are dry and fall off. I hand spritz them at least 2-3 times a day, plus I have a humidifier in that area as well. Any ideas?

I have mine in a terrarium where it has been for 2 or 3 years at least. I water it every few months (barely) and it seems to do fine but not a lot of growth.

RE: Hints for Maid Marion?

Then I shall move Ms. Marion closer to the humidifier. If I lose her, so be it. I've got plans to attend the SW ABS show in Ft. Worth later this month and have already started clearing room for new arrivals I'll drive home with.

Again, thanks for the feedback!
