    yeah, if you want a surefire success, give him a capensis, though... it will also take over before long. Have to consider that side too. plantlets will burst up invasively from roots, dead leaves, and seeds... But at any rate, it is still the plant i always give friends just to see if one can actually manage killing it... LOL ;P

    I still have plenty of D. capensis I'm trying to give away.
    If you want some let me know.

    Thanks for the recommendations guys!

    I was able to kill a capensis just recently. I potted the capensis in a mix of peat and mineral succulent soil (NAPA) for drainage - it lasted about 3 days!

    Dichotoma is really hardy, with enough light.

    They loved the B. Burgers.

    I think D. capensis is the all-'round go-to beginners plant.

    I think a terrestrial utric would do well and be attractive: U. livida and U. sandersonnii.

    Yeah Jim, I'm definitely gonna put some U. sandersonii in there as a ground cover and occasional blooms. But I wanted to have a nice little "centerpiece" plant that isn't difficult (at all) since he rarely listens to the things I tell him...
