    I had not too long ago traded someone for a nep and a D. prolifera (WHO WERE YOU?!!! PLEASE HELP! LOL) Anywho... The first flower opened the other day, I recall something about putting the flower on media to produce a runner... But when? And how? And what else Please help me. This is my first living prolifera after like 4 trys and it's doing so good!!!!
    Thanks
    Andrew

    Hi! I think that was me! Just let the stalk unfurl, then stick it back in the LFS. They usually make two or three flower buds before they're ready to make an offset. It's flowering so early! None of my other offsets have flowered (that I know of.)
    Good luck!

    You can wait until flowering is over or just do it now. The flowers aren't much to look at and this species never produces seed (at least for me).

    It doesn't proliferate? Does it do leaf cuttings or vegetative propogation?

    The flower stalk usually produces a small plantlet at its tip. When this happens, place the plantlet onto a nearby pot with LFS (or whatever mix you use). Allow the plantlet to grow one or two leaves before cutting the stalk but don't keep the stalk on as this drains the mother plant of energy. D. prolifera can produce multiple stalks at one time, each with a plantlet.

    My D. prolifera has produced four plantlets in the past 6 months with this method. It's still sending up stalks, but I cut them off when they form to let the plant conserve its energy to form new leaves.

    Hope this helps.

    Under the optimal conditions - yes. Like the other sisters - when you find the 'zone', it'll grow like a weed. Out of the 'zone' - croakage.

    In general, D. prolifera seems to be in the middle on the difficulty scale for the 3 sisters...

    Leaf cuttings work ...
    All the best,
