    Hey all,
    I thought I'd post a few pics of my D. anglica CA x HI. It's been growing nonstop even after the D. obovata next to it went dormant. The plants are sitting in a few inches of water, almost touching the bulbs of the flourescent light fixture.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.

    Great plant. What conditions do you give it (ie substrate, temps, etc)?

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the comments. The D. anglica is in waterlogged peat/perlite, and since its right under the lights the temperature probably stays at 70 degrees, dipping down to 60 at night. I was actually surprised that the D. obovata went dormant, considering its been these conditions with 12 hours of light since I pulled it out of the refrigerator in August.
