    D. schizandra (afrodisa $27)

    - D. schizandra - I included one in the 'Sisters' combo but based on this request - here's another ...

    My 2 cents (fwiw) - I've grown a variety of dews. D. regia is an impressive plant and obviously earned the nickname as the king. However, based on sheer impressiveness, I don't think D. regia has anything on a well-grown, healthy D. schizandra. A few years back, I started to regularly feed one (& another a bit less intensively) over the winter season when our house is naturally cool (documented in this thread). Even though I'd been growing this species for a few years at that point, I was extremely impressed with the growth. I ultimately stopped feeding because 1) the plant was hitting the inside of it's enclosure on all sides, 2) it had successfully flowered & 3) warm weather had arrived. I think this species is a no-brainer to be labelled as the Queen of the Dews. Since this plant did not reach it's full potential, I'm curious just how large one can get? **

    ** on the flip side, the species has a well-deserved reputation for being difficult. I recommend becoming familiar with it's requirements should you want to grow it.
    - Bidding starts @ $2.
    - Buyer pays shipping - which is estimated to be ~$6. If you win more than one of my auctions, I will combine shipping to reduce costs.
    - USA only.
    - Please plan to pay within 24 hours of auction close.
    - For questions or suggestions, I can be reached @

    Thank you Ron!!
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
