    Here's a pic taken of it when I got it half price from lowes taken 10-18-09

    The following pictures were taken 01\10\10- 2 1\2 months later.

    Whole plant:

    Interesting how the original plant isn't doing so well, but the plantlets are thriving.

    Take off the cover and give it more light. Actually, for all the plants that come in the "Lowes Cube Of Death". D. adelae is the best suited for survival in humid, poor;y lit conditions.

    I actually did take off the cover. I have it growing in a coke bottle with the top cut off as a water tray(though at first I had it more for while the plant aclimated to my conditions). The plant is about 4-5 inches away from a 26w cf bulb in a reflector.

    Yeah, I can't wait till mine grows those nice lance shape leaves! I just re-potted them separating the plantlets, it's crazy how prolific this species is! If only all plants grew that way! Is that a D.prolifera in the top pic? I see you still use a pic of my cat as an avvy Jim, that's pretty old, hehe
