glad you like it Ryan. pulled your pup out of the hidden clump: http://i1140.photobucket.com/albums/...ps55d3502a.jpg
'Lookin' great, Mass. Do I not see 2 flowers coming on that new stalk in your photo? If so you could possibly produce seed from one of them by applying pollen from the other.

Mass - are you feeding them? I was feeding two plants when they both developed stalks. I stopped feeding one & it immediately stopped any further development - never did get a flower on that one.

Thanks for the info Mass
You plants look amazing. I will be getting some next week. I hope I can get them to grow half as good as yours.

thank you for the kind words Archer.
Mark: don't think I have a steady enough hand to try and pollinate those little flowers.
Ron: I don't feed these guys. the food tends to mold too quickly in these sealed containers.
I did however up the light levels a week before the flower appeared.
Those are beautiful plants. Where did you get them?

ok so back to my question lol can you cross and of these 3 species?
I've seen crosses of D. schizandra and prolifera. I have not seen other crosses. (I'm not sure if that cross is fertile and could cross with D. adelae).
I've always had some D. adelae plants and learned, for whoever asked it, that, yes, if you expose its roots to light, it will grow plantlets along it. Looks like D. schizandra does the same thing. I have not yet tried with my D. prolifera.
Regarding D. prolifera, I've learned that if you let the flower touch the live sphagnum it's growing in, preferably holding it down with a piece of sphagnum, it will sprout a new plantlet that will grow to near adult size within two-three months. I think I've had 100% success with this propagation method.
Typically, I keep my two Queensland sisters (I'm still looking for D. schizandra) in with my Neps., so they get the same fertilizer sprayed on their leaves as the Neps, but I make sure that they don't get any coffee treatment.
