    Ten years ago, I got seed from D. adelae, which I sent to the ICPS seed bank(why would I sow it? I had 100s of plants!). I did not do anything, the seed just happened after flowering, so I don't know if it was even viable. That is the only time it ever happened.

    I've gotten mine to flower, too.

    I just had them in my grow chamber, under fluorescent lighting, high humidity, 18-hr photoperiod.

    There were lots of small insects that made their way into the hood, and the D. adelae seemed to benefit quite a bit.

    D.adelae is a real weed with me. It grows new plants from the roots all the time. I tested it ones, I had 3 adelaes growing in the same pot..I chopped them all down so nothing was left..just the roots..now there are about 9 new small plants in that pot.So now I have about 15-20 plants of it...

    But I have never got it to bloom either.
    Need all the experience I can get...

    My Lance Leaf Sundews are real weeds too. I have a classic terrarium that I started with just three of them and now there's probably around ten! They spread like mad through the soil. They're slowly taking over the tank [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]

    Now this spreading and plantlet thing I do experience. Maybe I'll try them outside during the warmer months, like under a table. I had all my plants outside last summer and had lots of spatulata, intermedia, livida, subulata, capensis... all over the place. Also, it was my tropical subdews only(adelae, capensis, and spatulata) that picked up aphids. Coincidence?

    The D. adelae I had in my office use to flower quite easily. They do have very pretty flowers (as Dyflam has shown [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] ). They are a like a spray of scarlet stars.

    I think I had my adelaes at home flower too but the one at the office flowered more easily. It was in a semi-sealed tank in a west-facing window. Had a nice red/bronze coloring too.
