    Haha. That's funny. That's what I get for posting a message late in the day when I get up at 5AM. Oh well.

    Did those babies come from the roots of the big plants or from their seeds?

    Both! And sometimes from leaves lying on the soil...they're like reproducing rabbits!

    There are really nice pics... if only capensis would grow well here [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    What's the average temp in which u guys grow capensis in? I'm thinking of putting it in an air-conditioned room for the night.

    I was advised by a member of this forum that the humidty in Singapore could be too high for D. capensis to grow decently. Recently, my last surving capensis [D. capensis 'Red'] finally went to the great garden up there. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Are you people for real? I didn't think there was anywhere that capensis wouldn't grow! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    It certainly grows fine for me without a cool night. During this last summer it was 85-90F daytime and 75-80F night, but the previous year, my room was easily up to 95-100F at times, and seldom got below 85F for days at a time. In addition, the capensis sat in an open terrarium on a southern windowsill, which probably stayed warmer than the surrounding room.

    The ceph and ventricosa did fine, too, strangely enough. It's amazing what these plants can do before you find out what they can't do... then they don't let you get away with anything!
    There's no 'a' in perlite.
