    D. aliciae propagation

    I have a few questions regarding my D. aliciae. First, I was wondering what methods work best for propagating D. aliciae? Mine has not been growing very well lately, and I would like some extra plants in case in dies. Also, it is in a 3:1 peaterlite mix. Does it need an airier mix in order to grow well? Does it like high or low light levels?
    Btw, how is D. graminifolia propagated as I would like a few spare's to trade in the future?
    Thanks,
    Tyler

    D. aliciae is like D. capensis and will return from the roots. so root cuttings, leaf cuttings and of course seed. i had 3 D. aliciae plants that withered because it went dry(vacation...woops!) they returned from the roots and now i have 5. its also a good clumper(have 3 more coming up from the base of plants )

    That is what is odd, mine has not produced a single plant since I acquired it (over 6 months ago). I will have to try some root cuttings soon.

    What are your growing conditions?

    About 75F during the day, 35-50% humidity, very good light and air circulation, 3:1 peaterlite mix, and I keep the soil just moist. The light is not the problem, unless D. aliciae doesn't like strong light. Maybe it is the temperature or the humdity?

    Sounds fine to me. Try giving it the powered bloodworm treatment and see if it perks up. Other thoughts are to repot or even the extreme decapitation (cutting off the leaves).

    How do the new leaves in the crown look? Are they green or dark brown/blackish? Review this thread in that regard.

    I would say that D. aliciae does NOT like strong light. I grow mine in the corner of my indoor tank so that only a small portion of the lights actually hits the plant even though they are elevated close to the tubes. It seems to thrive there and has flowered for me several times. Your temp and humidity range sounds perfect.
