Floppy D.tracyi

by YDK » Sun Apr 15, 2018 8:18 pm

I've had this plant for 2+ years but it usually put out floppy leaves like this.the new growths stay upright for a while and then begin to flop down.I first thought that the plant might not receiving enough sunlight but other plants are doing very well.i also wonder where should the growth point stay(on or below the soil level?)Any advice would be greatly appreciated as it's really frustrating to see my plant like that=((

Floppy, sagging leaves are normal for Tracyi. And the growth points on mine are always at soil level or a little above. Never below the soil.

There are little metal supports that you can buy at a garden center that you stick in the soil and a round piece of metal wraps around the plant and holds it together. I would definitely use them to support pitcher plants but they would work for tracyi or filliformis. My Korean Melody shark acts the same and flops all over the place. I guess it is just a matter of taste as to if it bothers you or not. I think they look cool.
