    Here's my sad, little, young, new D. regia I recently got:



    He does have heart though, so maybe someday he'll be poking out of the drainage holes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    For me, D. regia does best in a 8- or 10-inch pot with an open soil mix. I generally use a 60/40 sphagnum peat/perlite mix (more or less). Root cuttings work well. Take the fleshy ones that tend to wrap around the pot, but be careful to not whack the main root to the parent plant.
    I find that the thin roots work well too and produce better plants. Young plants from thick roots "slow down" after a month or so, but the thin root plants keep going and grow bigger, faster. thick roots are also more prone to rotting.

    Wow Bob, now there's a great d. regia! I'll try both thick and thin roots. I bought this plant on a whim when one popped up in a local indoor gardening store. I don't know why I never really considered getting one before, because it's a big, neat showy plant.

    LleopardGghecko, yours is well on it's way, I wouldn't call it sad at all. It looks pretty happy, in fact!

    Seriously! I've never EVER seen D. regia at any of my local garden centers. Capslock: What garden center did you get it at and what company put those plants out?

    Oh, and thanks for the nice words about my little regia. He appreciates it! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Nice regias. I mean all of them! Leopard, my two plants are about 1/2 the size of yours, so don't worry. I'm just happy that my plants are growing rather than dying. Hopefully my patience will be rewarded with some giants like Jim's & Bob's specimens. As for garden centres, I'd think I was hallucinating if I saw a regia in a garden centre!

    Hahaha! No, it wasn't a garden "center" chain store. It's a local indoor gardening shop, and some local enthusiast gives them cps to sell from time to time. I've seen some nice heliamphora there and some cool drosera. It's where I got a D. spatulata x capensis too. It was just one regia, unfortunately.
