    Completely agree!! Really nice to see such a healthy, well-grown plant.

    That's a great plant, Homer. How are you getting on with your petiolaris complex cuttings?

    Cheers,

    Greg

    Hi Greg. D. paradoxa is easiest. I have had some success with D. petiolaris and D. falconeri. After I took this photo, I pulled about 15 leaves from this plant. That was 2 weeks ago. I changed up my "leaf cutting" system, ie, better lighting, warmer conditions this time around, so hopefully I'll know if buds appear before the weeks is out.

    I'll keep you posted.

    Cheers, Homer. I'll have a go with D paradoxa as soon as I get time. Have you tried D ordensis yet? I've a couple of D ordensis plants that are coming on nicely and will be ripe for cuttings soon.

    Yes, I've tried, with 0% success rate.

    Not sure what to do next, as my D. dilatato-petiolaris look in poor shape 3 weeks after the cuttings.

    Well, if anyone cares to hear this, the plant has now sent up a flower stalk. Maybe stress induces flowering?

    Could be; however, the plant has been subjected to the same photoperiod for over a month. The only "change" occured when I started pulling leaves off. Only then did the flower stalk come about. Regardless, this is a good thing.
