    D. adelae propagation through glass pot

    finally found out how to post pics here
    I know these like weeds for some people, but due to some recent posts I am putting up a almost failproof idea on how to propagate and grow them.
    Here is a easy way to propagate D. adelae.
    I just pot them in clear containers, using live sphagnum to let light into the container.
    The plant grows MANY offspring from its roots due to the light coming in.
    When you have as many as you want just pull up everything and seperate.
    In the pots I have there are between 30-75 plantlets.
    here are some pics
    plantets


    top view of pot, they are small due to mother plant flowering and dieing off.

    macro, showing how red they can get, also a small meal in there

    If anyone knows of other plants that would react growing this way please tell me.
    Peace,
    Zero

    Interesting.... I don't grow these myself but a friend of mine does and he gets tons of em outta the top of the pot. But the glass pot idea is really something!! I like how they're growing all around the side of the pot!
    Think I might try this technique with one of my 'Big Easy's and see how that goes...
    Thanks!

    hmmm, now that you mention it, the Cp tank i once manage at a school had some D. adelae in it and i notice that there where these greens leaves growing up against the glass tank side, at the time i dident think anything of it, but now i know what they were! lol you learn something new everyday.

    Ahhh... the benefits of continuing to grow lance leaf sundews in their original Lowe's cube. When I got my first dew from Lowe's I didn't have anything to transplant it into, nor did I yet have the ingredients for any soil mixture so I just drilled a few holes in the bottom of the cube and stuck it into a pot of water. Now I am about to transplant them and there are a bunch just growing smashed up against the side exactly like that picture! I don't have near as many, though. Regardless, if anyone wants a common Lowe's lance leaf sundew let me know!

    I grow D x tokaiensis in a brandy snifter- it doesn't appear to do this, but some U.subulata that got in there (fancy that eh, U.subulata getting where you don't want it) is growing pretty well sub-surface..

    Cool lookin thing- I will be getting some of this species soon and I'll for sure give this a shot just cos it looks cool and like Av said, EASY
