Need help with my D.Regia

Use tiny crickets from the pet store. Kinda mid evil as they won't stay alive but you will get huge leaf jumps following

I feed this one crickets regularly. I don't care much for man made fertilizers. I prefer the natural methods

Not necessarily with regia.
It's one I have found that requires feeding to grow well. Especially if it's setting back or refuses to gain in size.

It will produce few when it gets it together again.

It grows really fast of fed frequently.

Been growing these for about a year from a quarter size plant
Feed feed and Feed some more when you can :-)

Does pot bound mean when the roots stick out the pot? Also how did you acquire your D. Regias? :)

Yes pot bound is when the roots exceed the capacity of the pots. When they break the soil surface and are exposed to light they typically make small plantlets.

If root cuttings work this should as well.

I got them fro SNW
