    What are you lighting conditions? D. adelea does not like direct sunlight and can be grown in a shaded area.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    They also like it very wet. It can be very hard to keep them growing. If it dies don't throw it away, it will send up new plantlets from the roots almost every time. Even after a few months with no growth.

    D. adelae is tempermental, but reproduces so well that it usually remains in collections once it enters them. It could be that the leaves were affected bylow humidity. If you have growth from the center, the plant will return, if not, then keep the pot in cultivation and the roots will produce new plants in short order. Try to keep the humidity high as possible until it adjusts or produces new plantletts.
