    My adelae tends to grow more compactly, with wider, shorter leaves. The leaves are greener than many of the pics here, and the tentacles are a very dark red. I guess I do well with mine, because I've been able to split off more than four dozen adult-size plants from my main colonies this season.

    Cindy, how long are the leaves on your plants, and how old are they? They look huge!

    just by guessing, i'd say those leaves are 4-6 inches. I've seen some at Lowes that are a little smaller than that, but after growing the smaller size from Lowes for a half year in LFS, my plants keep growing small oval-shaped leaves, like seedjar was describing. They're covered in dew and look great, but they never get long like that.
    Wonder what encourages the leaf elongation?

    Spot on, CPlantaholic. I think the longest was about 7"-8". The plant was 3" tall when it arrived last December. I left it at the same spot since then because it was just growing and growing. I was a little concerned when the weather turned hot and dry during the warmer months but at 90F and 40%RH it was still going strong. In fact, it looked its best then when it had some direct sunlight on it. The whole plant was maroon.

    oval shaped leaves you say? I bet thats no adelae! look up D. schizandraa, and then D. prolifera. It may be one of them.

    Yeah I started with three of them and now I have like 5 pots full of numerous plants. I need to make some more room before I can repot them becuase if I were to repot I would definitely fill up several water trays.
