    Should I try to move them?

    My old Adalae basically died but not before it shot up two babies from it's roots. The babies are doing terrific now!

    Anyways, the problem is they are growing right next to each other, one is getting big fast and the other one is going slower. Should I try to move them? They seem so small that I almost dont want to try to move them as i'll probably goof them all up. But now they are just running into each other.





    Here are their baby pictures...

    Just leave them. It's just like in the wild. And, after it happens several times you will have one of those huge clumps like seen in some pictures.

    I'd leave them too, since they appear to have plenty of dew. They will do just fine close together. However, if you feel the need to move one of the plantlets so they have more room, adelae is probably one of the easiest plants I have ever divided/transplanted.

    Sweet, well I guess i'll just leave them then. They seem to be doing great, I guess they have sort of adapted to the lighting in the window their. Their mom didn't ever seem to adapt completely and eventually just stopped putting out leaves. They also seem to catch a nice array of bugs in the window sill.

    They eventually become independent plants.

    I'd leave them alone.

    Leave em. If you wait long enough you'll have millions.
