    What did you do to get the D. helodes to sprout? I've treated mine exactly the same as any other pygmy and they haven't budged.

    I didn't do anything special that I know of. I think it must be beginners luck! I have them in a Dixie cup with a sand peat mix sitting in water. The bench they're on is on the north facing side of the house so it doesn't get much sun.

    They were started from gemmae not seed, maybe that's why? I did notice the ones I have in pure peat in a fish tank which has higher humidity sprouted a week sooner than these did. Maybe raise the humidity to get yours to sprout?

    Yup, theres snow here. On the Big Island theres usually snow in the winter on Maunakea (where the observatory is). Still haven't heard of any this year though.

    It seems to me the island is getting hotter! I remember when my neighborhood/city used to be more tropical and everything was lush and green. Now, even in the winter time, the mountains are dry and like a desert. We even have cactus growing on the hills now.
    Wish I had pictures to document the change.

    My D. helodes are gemmae. They're in a terrarium, so they're getting quite a bit of light. I was able to get D. roseanna and D. palace ssp. trichocaulis to sprout no problem.
