    Nice Steve! Still sparkly as ever!
    I might have to get a leaf cutting back, as I've learned that D. venusta doesn't particularly like living ouside in SF.

    No problem.. remind me when I come up to get those Nep cuttings ok?

    It doesnt like living outside here much either. I gave up on that experiment quickly as I saw my plant decline steadily after the move. Like D. adelae, indoors under the lights seems to be what it likes best.

    Cheers

    Steve,

    That is a great looking D. venusta you have. I like the look of the dead foliage. It makes the plant look natural.

    Actually Brian, now that you mention it, the deal foliage really does give the plant a very natural look. You may have changed my mind for the better!

    By the way Brian, how are your super-sweet looking Cephs doing?

    Hmmm. How are you growing it? I'm not doing anything special. 55 degrees at night, 75-80 daytime. A few inches under cheap four-foot fluorescent tubes. I think it's peat and sand; it's in the same pot and media as when I bought it from CC.

    It grows great, but in 2.5 years it has not flowered, unlike just about every other dew I have, and it's VERY difficult to get leaf cuttings to strike.
