Yeah I dunno, I don't think it was just one thing that did Kermit in, it was just a accumulation of a bunch of things I wasn't doing right. If he was healthy and the conditions were right he wouldn't have gotten the mildew in the first place. Plus he was just so small, I think it was too much for the little guy to handle at once.
But I have a few ideas on improving and changing the conditions for my next attempt. We'll see if I can get ahold of another one without breaking the bank Maybe if I'm lucky I'll find some leaf pullings instead.
I'd be willing to work out a trade for a small Cephalotus I have (bigger than the one you had though!). Do have some things you are willing to trade?
