    D. paradoxa

    The D. paradoxa last month.



    This month...and it is producing an offshoot.


    The offshoot can be removed and potted as new plant in about another 2-3 weeks.

    so that's how that's supposed to look like. i've never seen lateral offshoots. my plants seem to just undergo fission.

    Honestly, I was staring at the plant just a week ago and wondered how to get offshoots...e.g. giving it a nick on the "stem". I guess the plant heard my thoughts. LOL

    Mine is now struggling. I just transplanted to a pot of LFS. Hopefully, it will respond.

    We need Cindy to come and stare at a few more plants. I have a few that have never even attempted to do anything except sit there.....

    I have my fair share of paradoxa misses too, though it is one of the easiest to grow. It doesn't get hot enough here for the plants to go dormant but as with other Australian CPs, a slow down is almost certainly mealy bugs infestation.

    Not many local growers still have petiolaris complex species in their collection...I am also re-starting mine. Interesting because my conditions are similar to their natural habitat. Hopefully with consistent effort to propagate them, we'll see more of these beautiful species.
