    D. adelae plantlets from a leaf

    I have a plant grown in a small porcelin pot which is submerged partially in water. Today when I was about to top up the container with water, I noticed the plantlets.




    The portion of leaf was removed and placed on some live sphagnum so that the young plants have a chance to grow out.

    Hey Cindy, I've never seen flowers like that before on a D. adelae... oh wait - that's your fingernail! Cool.

    Looks good. How much of the leaf did you leave? Did you keep so much of the dead leaf just for balance and ease of placement instead of handling and disturbing too small of subjects?

    xvart,
    I tried to crop the pic to remove my nail but I couldn't because I wanted to show the entire pot. I removed half of the leaf and left the other half on the plant. Not for balance or ease of placement...I didn't think and just cut it. Now that you mentioned it, perhaps unconsciously I kept some portion of leaf with the plantlets in case they needed to re-absorb the nutrients...I would think cutting it too close to the plantlets reduces their chance of survival.

    jm82792,
    This is a first for me too. Like you said, D. adelae regenerates readily from its roots. Many leaves flopped against the side of the pot and were touching the water but this is the only one that produced plantlets.

    Jimscott,
    My nails have always been more of a topic should they should be.
    Kept bare: How do you keep your nails so clean? Obviously you are not the grower!
    Painted: Nice colour! Cool butterfly! Pretty flower!

    I like the healthy looking LFS as well! You do have a flair for the artistic... particularly when it comes to the heart-shaped, thawed, frozen bloodworms on the butterworts!
