    You are starving it of water? Why?

    They usually get very red with the right amount of light, if yours are still somewhat greenish, give them more light.

    no i was not starving them but once i was out and they did starv and become more redish it was only once any way


    any tips also on the propagator idea ? it will keep the heat in and i think it will help them what do you think ?

    No, they will be just fine in normal house temperatures and humidity. D. capensis is very tolerant of a wide range of conditions.

    No problem!

    D. binata should adapt just fine as well.
    With anglica it depends on which type you have. I believe the Hawaii type can be kept indoors, without dormancy, and should adapt to your house just fine. The temperate types need dormancy and should be kept outside.
    Look here for more in depth info.
