    any tips on growing adelae and filformis trayci?

    i just got them today and the adelae is in crap condition and the trayci is in dormancy, which i didnt know until i got it.

    you've gotten some pretty forgiving plants provided that you respect their requirements. the only thing is, you probably won't see any results with the trayci until spring rolls in but dont be discouraged. Keeping the trayci pot outdoors will probably suffice (especially with the cold temps CA has been getting), make sure the soil is damp but not waterlogged for long periods to prevent root rot.

    As for the adelae, it's best to keep this one indoors. High humidity, and bright lighting although you might want to supply a humidity dome and some sort of shade cloth in the beginning of the situating process since adelaes are naturally found in shady areas than full sun, but are capable of adapting to bright light conditions. Once they're comfortable, you can remove these. I used the tray method with mine, allowing the water to evaporate from the tray before refilling it. Adelaes are usually fussy in the beginning but when they do settle in, they're practically a weed, possibly even more so than capensis--but at last they stay in their own pots.

    *edit*
    unless the adelae is overcrowded in the pot, there is no need to repot them. and even if the top of the plant dies, D. adelae will/can come back from the roots.
    there's no need to repot the trayci. if you must though, do it sometime early/mid January when the growing begins.

    If your place gets cold, keeping the adelae outside will not make it very happy. It is a tropical plant and needs temperatures above freezing.

    geffcardo - I agree with amphirion on the tracyi. I only live about 45 minutes east of you and I keep all of my tracyi outside all winter. With the cold temps we had last week (low of 29F), they were all frozen for half the day each day but are doing just fine.
