    Thanks for all the kind replies.

    The D. kenneallyi with the uneven-length leaves (just up & to the left of the D. sessilifolia) started to shrink dramatically not long after this photo was taken. I started to get nervous that it was deteriorating or going dormant - either way, I had no back-ups of the plant - so I figured I'd repot, see what it looked like below the surface (& take some leaf-pullings).

    Surprisingly, it had the most massive root system of any petiolaris dew I've grown. It was a spider's web of roots and the bottom was filled with roots circling the pot. It was growing in a 2.5" pot and I ended up putting it back in a 4" pot! In addition to the roots, it had a very firm 1/2" bulb where the leaves originated. Lowrie's book says this is like a VFT but it really looked a lot more like a lillium bulb (real bulb - not just where leaves start). Based on what I found, it's pretty obvious that the plant was heading into a healthy dormancy. Now that I've disrupted it - I'll have to wait and see what happens - new growth or dormancy....

    .... and a closer view of the 'ladle'...
    (the light-colored shoot in the center was it's 3rd flower stalk of the season).

    So when are more people going to start growing these plants??!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    Hey, personally, I'd love to. I only have paradoxa and an extremely beautiful, recently acquired ordensis, and a bunch of year-old seed. My previous attempt to germinate them failed, most possibly due to unfavourable substrate. Better buy some more seeds, seeing as it seems they're easier than reputed!

    Cheers

    I'm not sure they're easier than reputed but as more people grow them (and share what they learn), we're bound to make growing them simpler than it used to be... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Indeed, "easier" isn't the word to use. Less complicated. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
