I have 2 VFT’s that I bought, they are pretty young and small, a Ginormous and a Bristletooth. Upon getting them I placed them outside on my south facing balcony, they are inside a plastic shoebox that acts as a watering tray and inside some wooden planters on my railing. Initially it had some sun burn while it adapted but it eventually adapted and new growth came in that looks great! Now within just about 2 weeks most new growth has died back and new growth points turn black. I have no idea what is going on anymore.
-Conditions have remained the same. They grow with a B52, Judith Hindle and Dente that appear to be in good health.
-I made a previous post about this but it was deemed harmless - I still have some odd orange growth growing on my soil in some pots. Not sure if that would have any effect.
-I use distilled water or RO water that has low TDS levels.
-The soil is original from the nursery. It is a peat moss and gravel blend.
-I live in Houston, maybe the heat is becoming too intense?
Here are some photos. I am including a photo of my B-52 which is great but has some odd blackening that may help someone ID a problem. Also attaching photo of where I have them growing.
