    Unhappy RIP to Stickey, my adeala...

    Let's have a moment of silence for my adeala, who I could not save from Lowes.

    I wouldn't count it out yet - these have a habit of coming back from the root.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Decapitate it - cut off everything above the soil (except maybe a little 2mm nub, but even that's not necessary) and give it light, keep the soil damp to wet, and don't let the tray of water it's in drop below about half full (which should be about 1/2 inch).

    In a month or two, you will probably have a plantlet (or plantletS). Like Not a Number said, they grow back from roots.

    I did this with my Lowe's Adelae a month ago and I now have a little Adelae plantlet about the size of two pieces of rice, and it's growing steadily.

    There is hope! Hallelujah! It's in a terrarium with over 200 watts of sunlight, the water level is always high, and the humidity is great. Do those conditions sound right? If not, please tell me so that I may wack myself with a metal poll repetitively.
    Thanx!

    Hmm. When did you get the adelae? Oh, and would you happen to have any idea on how many lumens your bulb gives out?

    All sound good except the unknown -

    What kind of bulbs, what color temp, how many lumens?
    Also, what's the temperature range inside the terrarium?

    200W should be pushing out about 12,000 lumens or so; ideal color temp is 6500K, but many grow under 5000K with great success.
