Well, since they're indoors and also inside a glass bowl thingy, I don't think they'll be catching much. I tried feeding my adelae, whom is in a similar environment, and because of the high humidity in the environment, the food molded. So probably not a good idea. =) Maybe you can find a picture on google though?

What would it take to get my hands on a division or SOMETHING of those catesbai?!?!?!?!?! I would pay whatever you asked, that plant is breathtaking!

Thanks man!

I do have two babies from it, it just sucks cause I'm in Canada so I think it'd be really expensive. :( Are there any nurseries there that sell catesbaei?

Thanks for posting updated photos Tael. I agree with Aaron, that catesbai is incredible. I have to get my hands on one of those once I get moved out to Oregon.

No problem! And thank you. =) Yeah you should get one for sure! One thing to note is that apparently they do not like the rain, I grow mine on the windowsill and it looks like this so I think they might be best as an indoor plant.

Fantastic collection and I think the pics are fine!
If that one picture is just 1/4 of your growing area, you must have quite a set-up.
Peace!

Well, it's 1/4 of my seedling area! Then I have another shelf, my windowsill, balcony, and my bookshelf haha. (Now that I think about it, that is a decent amount). And thanks!
