potting C. caulescens
« on: March 19, 2014, 19:16:14 »
Just acquired several C. caulescens. Stem diameter about 25 mm. They look like they were broken off a larger plant and have roots coming out of the lower 5-10 cm of stem. Question is whether to bury all the rootlets coming from the stem or should they be in air.

Hi there. Welcome to the forum. I guess you need plant it deep enough so that the plant can get good anchorage as caulescens can get quite tall over time. Are they unpotted plants when you got them? Treat the cuts with sulfur powder and don't plant it too deep in the pot where the water sits at the bottom of the pot.

Regards,
 Michael

Hi, some caulescens make many side shoots so use a big pot.  Remember to stake it well, especially as the stems are often bent.

Yes the plants are all bare rooted and it looks like all the existing roots were above ground. I was concerned about putting these roots underground knowing that caulescens is somewhat epiphytic. But I'll have to bury all the roots in order to have any support. Thanks for the comment about using a wide pot.
