    I know. I think they also propogate from the roots, because as many as I have sent out, the colony still has smaller plants on the perimeter. I've got multiple choices for the paradoxa.



    But the adelae has ceased flowering. One thing I have observed is that there were a few of usposting about adelae flowering, all at the same time. Same thing held true about D. aliciae. I'm thinking it's a time of year / photoperiod thing.

    Hey guys, you know the seeds are ready once the flower buds have dried out/ turned brown. The seed should pretty much fall out when you tip the buds upside down, but for some species, you'll have to coax them out by rolling the buds gently between your fingers.

    In the case of D. capensis, the flower buds overflow with seeds and many will fall out on their own. This is true with D. spatulata and a few others too.
