    Looks like a light-starved D.spatulata to me.

    BTW...welcome to the forum Jebb.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Would that cause it to be green instead of having red?
    I've got it in a western facing window since getting it Saturday.
    I'll try to find more info on that species.
    And thanks.

    Maybe Euphorbia trigona? It seems to have some drooping, and some brown spots on it..has had the entire time I've had it. It was kind of a rescue--it belonged to my first room-mate, who we had to evict, and he left it. Maybe not enough light? It's by a western facing porch glass door. My other xerophytes seem to be fairing just fine..had some browning with the Echeveria initially, but I did some pruning and I water it slightly more often than previously and it seems to be thriving.

    I also have some sort of other plant that hasn't been doing well at all after I potted it. Might re-pot it in a hydroponic setup. I assumed peat would work, but I think it isn't working out for the little guy. EDIT: Re-potted. I don't know if it's a true hydroponic, but it's in water w/fertilizer, no soil, and it worked when I needed to re-root it, but it was doing very poorly while I had it in the peat, so I just put it in the water again...hopefully this will help it thrive a bit better.

    Yeah...bright light causes more red pigments in sundews, and those grown in severely dim conditions are grass green.

    Ah. Hopefully the sun will perk it up.

    EDIT: Also--how much standing water should I allow in the bottom of the jar? I'm assuming it isn't a problem, since that's kind of the whole principle of the rack system which seems so common, but I don't really have the experience to know what is appropriate.

    The water should be halfway up the pot.

    Easily done--how often should I change the old water out for new?
    EDIT: Also...might be a good idea to wait for an N.ampullaria..lol. Newb and all. :P
