    Check out my "d. prolifera frustration" thread. Mine was receiving morning light just like yours (southeastern window) but it always looked like a mess. Moving it to northwestern window did the trick for me. Basically it's in bright shade all day now and receives a few hours of direct light as the sun goes down.

    D. prolifera can be a pain. Mine were going crazy just a few months ago, but then slowed down, so I moved them to a new, bigger pot. Now, all of the parent plants are dead, and the plantlets are a mixed bag. Some are barely holding on, while others will slowly make one medium-small leaf, then a really small, deformed leaf. I've found cooler temps and lots of INSECT food helps, for some reason.
    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.
