    I was given a D. hookeri (assumed) and I have had to use a bamboo skewer to support it as it wants to fall over, especially as it has 4 growth tips now. I blame the leaning on not enough light, though the plant gets enough to have a lot of red in its coloration.

    D.hookeri is rigid enough to stand on it's own, unless like Mach you have wind issues (pun intended Ha!). That species is also a solid green/yellow even under intense light.

    Mach recently noticed that some plants that he'd gotten labeled as D.peltata "Tasmanian Red" (or something to that effect) were red and did not look quite right for the species. His plants are likely D.gracilis (formerly D.peltata ssp.gracilis). Many of these plants were collected, grown and distributed long before they were properly studied and understood. This has led to a lot of mixed up data on them. I have a pot of plants I received a few years back as "D.peltata "Pink Flower" and D.peltata "White Flower". As it turns out, the "White Flower" plants are actually D.hookeri and the "Pink Flower" are D.peltata.

    Do you have any photos ?

    D.porrecta is indeed a great species. I love it's aerial basal rosettes. Very unique.

    I think the D. purpurascens is my fave of the group. Something about the combination of the color and the symmetry...

    Is the Zonaria already dormant? How does it look like all dried out?
