    I have some grown from seeds from last year, the ones I keep in my tray are still just getting bigger and bigger, but a smaller one I put in my windowsill just tsarted sending up a scape the other day, this thread is good and timely (tho I don't USUALLY have any problems letting whatever feels like flowering go for it, so I was just gonna watch and observe)

    I will make sure to dry heem out if it looks to be doing what Tamlin describes

    Thanks for the photo of the buds. Nice and round they are, and a good indicator of the species.

    ok, didn't want to start a whole new thread just for my related question. With d. spatulatas, is it common for the plant to become/remain dewless when flowering? Mine have been sending up multiple stalks, but the plant itself has been dewless for some time now. I moved it from outside (where the rain and debris kept wrecking it) to an indoor windowsill, growing uncovered in a water tray. Humidity is around 50~60%. Picture below: Thanks

    I'm not 100% sure, but my D. spatulatas do the same thing. They flower a lot and all or most of the dew goes away. I've been trying to cut flower stalks but its so dang hard. Every time I cut one off another one sprouts

    heh, I've been letting mine flower just because I want the seeds, but the plant isn't dewing up and that frustrates me. I just put it under a humidity dome to see if it'll re-dew again. I got another D. spatulata inside a covered terrarium and it's dewy, but it's green as opposed to reddish like that one I posted.

    Dewlwssness is a sign of plant stress. It can happen from flowering, but I did not find that a common event. Are there other issues affecting your plant possibly? In any event, increasing the humidity is a good idea. If otherwise healthy, the plant should quickly recover.

    this morning I checked and parts of it have started dewing again. The humidity as well as the lower temps must have helped. I still want to harden it off to room humidity down the line.
