D. filiformis 'all red' from Washington County, FL
D. ascendens from Serra de Ponta Grossa, City of Campo Largo, Parana State, Brazil
On Valentine's Day of this year, I took a leaf from D. ascendens & D. filiformis 'red', placed them in tubes filled with water** & put them on an east-facing windowsill (specifically for this auction). While they probably would have developed much faster in a warmer location, both have growth....
Here are both plants as the winning bidder will receive them:
The D. filiformis 'all red' is the type that doesn't require a dormancy. I received a few plants in a trade in spring of 2007. I have kept them in various terrariums and they grow all year - none of mine have gone dormant since I received them.
I count ~11 plants growing off of the primary leaf. Here's a closeup:
The D. ascendens tend to be less prolific than the 'common' dews in water propagation - so far, I see one plantlet coming along:
To try something new, I will offer a three month warranty on the plants. If one plant from each species is not alive after 3 months, I will ship the winning bidder an additional leaf of each (in water). (I only ask that the winner is honest).
Bidding starts at $2.
Plants will be shipped as pictured in test tubes of water.
I pay shipping.

As an added bonus for this auction, I will include an unused digital thermometer.
