Another update, as of today. This guy doesn't look too swell, but its fighting and it keeps sending up new leaves for me and that's a bonus! I started thinking maybe its being attacked by pests, but none of my other plants that surround it are in that shape, so i'm leaning on a combination of a few things: either soil got too packed and roots couldn't breathe, too much Osmocote a couple weeks ago, and maybe that packed soil i was using stayed a little too wet, (though i'm thinking its one of the first two). All of the criteria has been met as far as its growing requirements are, and its still getting these strange brown spots all over and the leaves keep dying off so I decided to repot it in a much looser mix. I doused the roots in Superthrive to help it out a little and now the soil is very porous, and drains very well. I leeched the soil and it looks like its hovering around 5ppm, so thats good enough. I got some Maxsea coming in Monday or Tuesday so I may experiment with a very weak mixture. Waiting for 10 d .regia seedlings to germinate now but i'm only into day #3, hopefully soon!
