Thanks for the feedback. I think it must be transplant shock as my
original H. Heterodoxa x Ionasii was doing really well in the
garage terrarium until I brought it into the house to split it and
put it in the new terrarium. I also had a couple of small H.Nutans
sent to me in the post and these are exhibiting the same problem.
The only plant which hasn't really been affected that much is one
that has remained in its original pot.

I think the conditions are right so I will wait and see what

Thanks again,
