~ a couple weeks. It was struggling badly, and out of desperation, i plucked the bad leaves and placed in water.
I can't see the photo...?
It was in the wrong location on My Photobucket account. It should be visible again.
That is very cool. I wonder how it will do long term. Several plants can live submerged for a time, then start to rot. What do you plan to do with it?
It looks great, thanks for posting!
I've propagated D. paradoxa by tearing the whole plant into pieces and ended up with many plantlets. They are usually submerged for months without any problems. With the stem above water, that plant may actually survive longer.
Currently, I have other petiolaris complex plants growing in live sphagnum moss with fluctuating water table, flooding at least once a week and they are doing well.
Thank you, Cindy! Transitioning from water to media hasn't been easy for me.
True Bugs really Suck
D. paradoxa seems to go dormant almost randomly. Worse it gets stuck in dormancy and stays that way. One of the master growers in the LACPS says repotting them when they do this seems to help bring them back to life.
Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
