But from 2018.12, the mean growth point don't produce leaves, and then It appears many Bud point, but from the new bud point, the new leaves are not healthy, you could see in Pic3, Pic4, Pic5 and Pic6, the leaves are so small!!! And become dysmorphism. I set up the temperature at day:24-27℃, night: 12-14℃, air humidity: 85-100%.

Jason. I suggest you browse a few photos of M. schlechteri growing in their natural habitats where they often experience months of drought especially during El Nino weather phases. During such the western tropical Pacific Ocean nations experience very dry conditions while the Americas experience floods.

  Your plant is not recognizable in its current condition.  You need to study a lot more about the best ways to cultivate these plants.  Furthermore, changes to cultivation regimes should never be very sudden. Your plants need time to adjust to less water, much better airflow and probably better nutrition.  Ants are great providers.
