    Congrats! Don't cut anything off! There's a plantlet to be found at the end of that rainbow.

    Yup - tuck the end of that shoot into some live LFS and you'll soon have another plant growing.

    Huh?? They flower constantly! I suspect that the constant plantlet-producing flower-shoots may have something to do with its name ....

    No pollination, just stick it in live LFS. When it's reasonably happy with the conditions, you'll soon have many of them. Enjoy!

    congrats, jimmy. It looks great! Just in case you're confused, you will need two genetically different plants of D. prolifera blooming at the same time in order to produce viable seed. Otherwise, even if you try to manually self-pollinate it, no seeds will be produced. However, like jimscott and RL7836 said, they will frequently produce plantlets at the end of their flower stalks, and this is a very fast and easy way to propagate D. prolifera.
    Happy propagation.

    I would tend to agree with you judging from the faint recollections I have of my college etymology class.
