Anyway, after I lost these two to rhizome rot, I was devastated. I asked a few trusted sources, including a very well know seller here in my state of Florida, and was told that alata, leuco, and montana do not like any standing water, especially when they are weak from division.
So I am curious, what are your experience-based feelings with this statement. On all of my other 1020 trays, I have now placed drain holes at 3/4 inch. But for these trays with leucos, alatas, and montana, I have not let them stay in standing water at all.
Mind you, it’s Florida and hot outside already in the high 80’s to low 90’s F, easily 80+ % relative humidity.
I’m keeping an eye on the moisture content in the soil, but it’s sure gonna be tough not to have any water in the trays with our almost daily afternoon t-storms coming soon.
