Both were potted up into a very slightly larger pot with fresh mix, and are on my self-made felt self waterers. I found these waterers made caring for show plants, especially as they grew larger, much easier.

Experiment # 3 -- Grow To Show Comparison
Experiment # 3 will be two plants of Optimara Trinidad growing side by side... one will be on a Grow To Show fertilizing/disbudding/lighting schedule, and the other will be allowed to grow and bloom as it wishes. These two plants had some problems with my acidic rain water, and I also noticed they are growing a bit too 'open and loose' for what I expected. I think they were grown too warm????!!! And have moved them, when I put the show plant on it's special schedule yesterday.
