Brenda, may I ask how often are you watering /misting the saucer? Daily? And if you are fertilizing, how do you fertilize? I am trying out this method too, seems to be pretty good, but requires much more misting than I usually do.

I don't water as often as I should because I'm at work in the early am most mornings (which is usually a good time to water so that the plants will dry out). I water/drench the whole greenhouse once a week with rain water. I fertililze (mixed in with the rain water) usually at 3 out of 4 waterings. I have a wet wall which helps keep the humidity up. I do water a few things more often, but this plant has not been one of them.
