    I purchased an adelae because it looked interesting and was extremely cheap to add to my order. I wonder if I will wind up regretting my decision? I've got it in a 4" pot at the moment. I guess that won't last forever.

    I've got the same thing going in a 9-10 inch pot. As boring a plant as it is, I actually like them once they get really full. You can try an experiment, I did it with this pot. I had a 3 inch pot originally. It got overgrown, so I split it into 4 or 5 pretty small plants, and threw them into here. After a few weeks of them all looking crappy, I chopped off the tops of all 5. 5-6 months later, this is what I got, only starting with roots. It can be quite a grower at times, and the flowers are really nice if you can get them. I expect this pot to be overflowing in probably 3 more months.

    Only 15... and already pounding away cans of Budweiser while watching sundews. Just a warning, one you start drinking and gardening there's no turning back.

    This is an 8" x 13" tray of Adelae, now the tray is overloaded completely! This photo taken in March of this year. I have to thin it out a bit now.

    This was just a couple small, extremely sad looking plants. I think I've finally made them happy. I always found D. adelae to be a difficult dew to grow. I'd say they've been in this 5" or so container for 5 months.

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Wow Crissytal, those are some really red D. adelae. If you weren't reporting success I'd say they maybe had too much light. The leaf shape certainly is attractive, though, and they're definitely showing all the general signs of good health. Are those in direct sun for part of the day or something?

    Hey Joe,

    Thanks for the compliments! I had absolutely no success with growing outside. Probably too much light. These are grown under lights, with no natural light at all. They are in 100% peat moss and often stand in 1" of water. I still had trouble even growing inside. I'm not sure what I was doing wrong, only that I leave these alone and the container is larger. I only move them to water plants behind them. Other than that I just forget about them. Maybe I just finally found that one adelae plant that decided to like me (and it multiplied from there) haha.

    This is my D. adelae at the balcony receiving the breeze and some direct sunlight in the late afternoon. It grows next to N. ampullaria. It is getting less red than a couple of months ago because it is the monsoon season now.
