  OT Strelitzia, another Question
From: "Redman, Julia" jredman at tigr.org> on 2005.02.09 at 10:16:02(12660)
Hi everyone,

I hope no-one minds, but I too have a strelitzia question and just
didn't know who to ask. I started a batch of Strelitzia nicolai
seedlings about a year and a half ago, and they grew very nicely for a
while but toward the end of last summer every last one of them stopped
growing, including the largest one which was repotted last summer. At
first, I thought the largest one was unhappy with the potting mix I
provided, as it is not only not growing but also looks yellowed
slightly, but then I noticed that the younger plants were also
stagnating (but not yellow). They aren't being grown in excessive
sunlight; they only get about 2-3 hrs a day right now, but the problem
did start in summer when they were on the back porch where they got
morning light for about 4 hrs. I realize older plants will take much
more light, but didn't think it necessary for these young plants.

Any advice/ideas would be appreciated.
And thanks for indulging me!
