    Congrats on the D. hamiltonii flower NaN! I've grown them for a couple years and no flowers. I expect it's due to my laziness regarding my timers. It's been a few years since I've increased and decreased them for the seasons....oops!
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    It's more a matter of luck than anything else. The only people that I know that have gotten flowers from this species are Barry Rice and William "Tamlin" Dawnstar and only once for them so far in 8-10 years.

    I've been growing this for 6 years now. I repotted them last year and this winter moved the pot where it gets much more sunlight all year round. I'm trying to get the rich chocolate/blackcherry-red color this species will develop.

    In a previous incarnation I grew hamiltonii for 4 years complete with seasonal photo-period and temperature changes. It never offered to flower for me. 'Cool-looking scape.

    'Nice shots, Devon.

    Lk at the size of those dew blobs (too big to be mere drops!).

    Judging by the drool, I'd say it's hungry!

    I wish I could grow these. What are your conditions, and how did you sprout the seeds?

    I didn't realize that D. hamiltonii was so difficult to get to flower. I've had mine for about three years or so. I can't wait to see the opened flowers!

    Congrats again!!

    Agreed about the blobs, NaN! You should see them when they merge and form a stream in midair. Maybe it happens because they are not disturbed by wind or prey...The ones I keep outside don't get so dewy.

    Devon I just cut out a tiny piece from the round part of the seed, keep the seed in pure water for a day and sow it uncovered on moist medium. Germination/seedling conditions were: 20><25C daytime temps; 10-15C at night down to 0C sometimes, usually windy and %10-20 humidity (except for the ones outside). In my experience the most important factor for their growth is daytime temperature; it affects them literally in minutes.
