It was an undertaking to try to separate the plants but I was able to get them safely separated into their own pots. Put a top layer of silica to deter moss on the very small ones. I wanted to get them free from shade to grow healthier and have kept higher humidity to help them reestablish themselves. Interestingly enough, the top pot was a community pot sown at the same time in the same conditions. Only in the last couple weeks have the bigger plants in it started growing. Most in there are quite small still. No idea what happened with that. Hopefully when these gain some size I can sell some but I plan to have a couple giveaways in the future too. I'm really excited to see how these develop. Theyre in less light than ideal because of space (need another grow rack now) but they have shown a nice yellowish tint to the wider leaves forming and the red crowns on them are very cool. This was an experiment but I've had a blast doing it. It inspired me to sow tons of other seeds. :D

Another month has passed since the transplant and some of them have really taken off. The interesting thing with them is the variation in the plants. I have a lot of them were a yellowish color that went bright green. Part of that I attribute to dosing it with Scott's Disease EX. The tentacles were red and are now white, though some leaves on some plants are reverting back to the bronze/red colorations they had. The leaves are widening. Then there is the odd one that is showing yellow/green with red striking down the leaves it produces. It's interesting to watch and I'm curious how they'll continue to progress. I may transplant the smaller pot soon in the hopes it'll get them going. Some of them are doing better than before. I moved the tray from under T5s to a different stand under Yescom LEDs(closer to the light source as well). I'm keeping it away from heat because I have some tuberous pots I'm trying to work with and the temp drop is about 12 degrees from where it was previously. They seem to be doing better in this new setup, which stands to reason given their native locale. Think it's about time to consider a giveaway of couple of these and I'll offer a few for sale when the plants start showing their original color.
