I’ve now mentally named my dinosaur plant “Moldy-saur”. I think it needs brighter light than I gave it. About 2 weeks after reviving it, the mold started and in spite of rinsing it every other day with soapy water and moving it to a brighter window, I couldn’t get it to stay clean. The company it comes from recommends letting them dry out if they mold, so I’m giving that a try. The good news is that it is curling up just like it’s supposed to so perhaps not all is lost. I’ll try reviving it again when the sun is a little brighter. Maybe this one just needs to hibernate all winter.

Dinosaur Plant Update: Mold!
I lead two lives - one as an artist and the other as a scientist. More and more I'm finding my two worlds colliding, and it's not the disaster you might expect. View all posts by micheletobias
