    I will definitely be looking into that once i have larger more established plants for them to dwell on.

    Hi Corky,

    If you can grow other African dews, you can probably grow these South African Bug Plants as well.

    I grow this plant under under a single CFL and it is growing steadily for me.

    Yes, i did germinate the seeds with mostly quartz sand mixed with a wee bit of peat, which was a bit of a mistake on my part, because that mix tended to dry out much too quickly.

    If i was to do it again i would use a lot more peat to help ensure more moisture, especially at the critical seedling stage.

    The seedling was then transplanted to a mostly peaty mix with a bit of perlite and lava rock for aeration and drainage.

    This plant is kept on the drier side and is bottom watered with a sprayer once a day.

    I still need to transplant this plant into a larger container and then i'll aim to keep it just slightly moist.
