Mine seems to do its own thing,but i can tell you have them over potted,not a good thing if you want good strong plants,those two left of the solo cup,should be in a solo cup
keep them cool and dont over fertilize them,they hate it and will burn till they get big enough to take alot of fert,
Patience is a key I find. They like it a bit cool, bright light. I let mine nearly dry out between watering. I feed them 1/4 strength orchid food every watering, occasionally flushing the soil with regular water.
Jim advised me to underpot, and pamper them less than I was--no bottom heat, let 'em dry out. It works like a charm! I do use Superthrive in the water when I water them, and 1 teaspoon FlowerTone fertilizer when they start to show new growth.
Lane -- Red Hot Chili is in solid perlite (I think). Great for rooting the leaves, but I'd add a bit of potting mix to the perlite (maybe 1/3 mix to 2/3 perlite?), slowly moving up to 1/2 and 1/2 as the plant gets bigger. -Jan
Any success that I've had came after Istarted using self-watering pots, those two-piece ones that hold water in the bottom piece and looooooose mix and the plant in the top piece. I've also had recent success with wick watering with pots set on synthetic carpeting-lined trays; this had the added advantage of adding humidity to the area around the pots.
