    I'll update this thread in a few months. May make an ID a bit easier to 100%..

    Re: Humic acid - They are refering to the black crust that often forms on the undersides of unopened leaves. This is by no means unique to D. aliciae as I have seen it on freshly repotted D. venusta and D. admirabilis. D. aliciae has a greater propensity for these build-ups.

    See this thread:
    http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...ighlight=humic

    D. trinervia is easily identified by the three "nerves" on the basal portions of the leaves undersides.

    These close-up photos fail to reveal any of the detail such as stipules that would help to ID the plants. At this stage of growth they could be just about any of the species with cuneate/spatulate leaves. Flowers and seed reveal more definitive characteristics to help ID a species.

    Indeed. These kids are still smaller than a dime. So even with the macro lens it didn't help much..
    Thanks for the help thus far guys. I'll give this thread a bump at the end of summer.

    Thank you. There's actually two growing there together, which have flowered a couple times since their arrival. They seem quite happy in my colder South American area. Also not sure if it's my lights, or a variation.. But the entire plants are beet red.
    I'll snap a pic tomorrow to show you what I mean.
