    I've had two pots of D. adelae for a few years now, and while one is acting like it wants to die, the other pot has flowers right now. Amazingly red they are!
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    My friend next door has his growing on his windowsill and it's shot up 5 flower stalks. Need to get some pics of it to show you all.

    Holy crap!
    My adelae never looked that nice! Of coarse I only had it for a few months before I traded it... But still looks really cool
    I was here...

    Ooooo, finally a picture thread I can contribute to! *goes to dig through his pic threads...*

    A pot I donated to the auction last year:


    A giant one:


    Flowers:





    And since some of you can't get them to flower, I have MORE than enough flowers to go 'round!

    Oh, and D. adelae does not readily produce seed. I've tried with my own plants, with no success. SDCPs tried with what were presumably two genetically different plants; I assume he also had no success since I never heard back about it. It CAN be a weed, to an extent, because it DOES very readily spread through roots. You can yank a plant out, but if you leave even a tiny bit of root behind, it'll probably grow a new plant. I started with one small plant from Lowes and a year later I have what you see above. Too many to count. Whenever I finally get around to repotting that minibog, there'll definitely be a giveaway, lol...
