D.adelae grows, grows, grows...then, it dies suddenly and do the possum thingy of sending out numerous plantlets from its roots.
I think D.adelae is a "colonizer". It is genetically coded to spread and colonize other areas. It spends part of its life growing numerous long roots. Then the mother plant decides to give up its life so that the roots can form plantlets.
So this is what I will be doing...I am going to remove some roots from time to time. Since that wouldn't hurt the main plant, I hope instead that it will be end up growing larger and not "play possum". * [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
Since the climate here is so different from the rest of the world and I've only succeeded to grow D.adelae in pure perlite, I have decided to treat the plant like any of my lowland nep. Very loosely packed perlite/LFS mix, top watering and letting it dry out before the next watering. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
