    Are they not in individual pots? Hold the camera a little further away and they should be a little more crisp.

    WoW! I have never seen petiolaris species growing together in such beautiful set-up! How do you manage temperatures and humidity if some go dormant and some of them keep growing? Or do they go dormant at the same time? (that would be too convenient heh) :-) Just beautiful (drool)

    Holy bajesus! That's just absolutely stunning! I, too, am curious of where your grow them. A terrarium or big tubberware tray?

    davy -- definitely a tank. I have had better experiences with tank than with individual pots for these things. Maybe they just like to hold each other's hands, overcrowding and spilling out of the tank.

    adnedarn -- let's see if I can upload one of those when the weekend comes around and I can get at the camera again.

    yellowdart -- keep it as hot as possible, I actually tried to keep the light lower and almost covering the top of the tank so that it's like a sealed sauna inside.

    cephliebahaber -- now that you mention it, these plants do look like sea anemony.... That's fascinating...

    traminh -- do your local nurseries sell them? I don't think it should be too hard to find, right?

    drwurm -- I'll see what I can do in the week end comes around and I have my hands back on the camera.

    halt -- they hardly catch anything! They're quite inefficient compared to my neps!!

    jimscott -- I thought about that, but I wanted to try and make it look like there was an endless field of them so I went in as close as I could and then took a step back as far as I could without revealing the walls of the tank

    jrfxtreme -- the paradoxa yes, the other one, not quite there yet...

    klasac -- dormancy is something that I have not tried to work through yet. I grow these the same way I grow Venus fly traps. I'd try and make sure they divide and split before they go dormant so even if I lose the parent, I will keep offsets. I've never actually managed to get a falconeri out of dormancy yet.

    capensis -- tank, for the win!

    petmantis -- not enough! Used to have a lot more, but I got lazy so I started giving some away.

    ellison -- let's try and post a few photos that I have for now. The weekend will have to wait for the rest.

    Sea anemone photos:

    They really do bear a resemblance don't they?
    A few more pictures:

    obscene looking thing:


    More obscene looking thing:


    obscene looking thing living next to the stem forming paradoxa... (its not a hybrid, there really is a stem forming paradoxa)
