Oh no, that's a shame. Out of interest what were you trying to grow, Cuttings or Rooted Plants? And what substrate did you grow them in? @racha

@hebelover i was trying to grow polka dots plants from cuttings and i followed what you've told me before. i think i sprayed them with water too much.

After killing 3 of these, thought I would try keeping one in a sealed Kilner Jar to keep the humidity ultra high, its worked too well, 2wks and its filled the jar already!! #fittonia #fittonia-albivenis #nerveplant #mosaicplant #paintednetleafplant #houseplant #houseplants #jrshouseplants #indoorgardening #indoorgarden #indoorplants #terrariumplants #terrarium #foliage #foliageplants #foliagefriday

Oh yes and soon, hard to find big jars without paying stupid money, looking at 2nd hand fish tanks instead @joannie.a

Thank you, I put a layer of small stones on the bottom, then a bit of charcoal (apparently it helps) then a compost and Perlite mix on top. I don't water it, just spray inside with a mister once or twice a week @racha

Thanks very much Diane, I was really surprised how well this did, my only advice would be don't underestimate the size of the jar needed!! Hope you're doing ok, been 2 1/2yrs since Oz passed and I still miss him so bad every day ❤ @hkyfvr
