    Plenty (and I mean PLENTY) of bright light, warmth, and moisture. Other than that D. paradoxa is as easy as can be (in my experience).
    Cheers, and good luck

    Yeah, I'm even growing it in cool, highland conditions and have been for over a year. However, the tray it's in sits directly over a light fixture for the shelf below, so it's warmed up by that. It seems the water/soil temp is more important than the air temperature.

    In what was described, is exactly what produced this cluster of D. paradoxa.

    I'm just wondering, but does D. paradoxa have any relation to this plant?

    What is it? It looks like a Petiolaris Complex type plant. Is it an ordenensis?
