    D. nidiformis propagation

    Which is easier for this plant (want to mass produce it)seed, leaf, or root cuttings? Does it create underground shoots easily/ at all? I keep snipping the flower stalks off. I won't (obviously) if seed turns out to be the easiest form of propagation.
    I only have one plant, and have very little experience with it (five months), however, it appears to do very well, considering its crimson hue.
    I only have experience mass producing d. capensis (all forms), d. scorpioides (three surviving plants) and d. occidentalis x pulchella. Both pygmies were from gemmae production.
    Thanks in advance!
    Forget about the mundane and meditate.

    This plant is seriously a weed. Almost as bad as D. capensis. Seed is very fast, leaf cuttings take as easily, and root cuttings work well, too.
    I'd let them flower. They're a nice purple color. Once you get them going and have extra seeds, be sure to spread them around!

    It is a weed indeed :-) At least from my observation....recently I put some root cuttings on the peat and in 2 weeks I had 2 new plants on each of them. Now I am growing a D. nidiformis forest:-) Still.... a very beautiful plant.:-)
