    Nice. I got mine today, and the mother plant is about as large as yours. It also has 5 baby plants growing at the base of the mother plant, so hopefully I will have a nice, full pot of D.graminifolia. Thanks for all of the help everyone.

    I found a 5-10 degree drop in night time temps gave me the best results. Planted in live milled LFS and double potted so the water level was 3-4 cm beneath the surface this plant grew from seed in a year and a half and flowered shortly after the photo was taken, but was sterile for seed. Avoid warm roots at all times, and to this end the water container was chosen to be reflective white. If the summer temps exceeded 85F the plant was placed in a cool cellar window for the duration. The plant never holds more than 3 leaves at any one time, so no worries if that's all yours has.

    Mine D.graminifolia needs repotting, but I have 2 questions.
    1. What soil mix should I use?
    2. Can I propagate it via root cuttings or leaf cuttings?
    Thanks,
    dewy

    Wow, FedeAbra, I love the color. Is that the standard form with a lot of light, or some redder variety?

    The medium I used was live sphagnum moss run through a food blender. I used a deep 10 inch pot.

    I did manage to get leaf cuttings to form plantletts, but the leaf buds did not strike roots. Possibly the use of a rooting hormone would improve on my success.

    Good luck with your plant!
