    Here's some photos of my tank of D. schizandra, adelae and prolifera. I've stumbled upon a method that seems to be keeping these plants very happy. I got a very healthy specimen of D.schizandra from an experienced Canadian grower about a year ago. This is supposed to be the same clone that grows under Phil Mann's greenhouse benches in Australia and it is very vigorous.

    The plants are in a 5 gallon tank. The substrate is pure LFS with some live moss on top, although it needs to be trimmed regularly. The top is covered in glass except for about 1/2" on each end. The light is a single 23W compact fluorescent. I pour in rainwater when the moss looks like it's starting to dry - not really dry, just no longer saturated. There's often some standing water in the bottom of the tank. The temperature is whatever my Canadian basement provides - I'd say min 15C at night in the winter and the light heats the tank up to about 25C in the day.



    I put in some pieces of D. adelae and D. prolifera, seen here on the right, and they are growing very well in the same conditions as the schizandra. All the plants to the left are schizandra.



    The D. adelae and D. prolifera



    A close-up on a clump of D. schizandra plantlets. You can see a new leaf forming in the centre of the photo.



    Here's the mother plant back in June 2010 with a full scape of flowers.



    Another view of the D. adelae and D. prolifera



    The flower stalk seen from the side.



    The plant multiplies by growing plantlets off the roots. You can see a few here up against the glass.
