    Ok, I'm getting one soon. Do they need much light? I read they dont need "as much as others". My D. rotundifolia needs HIGH humidity or else it loses it's dew... Is this the case for D. adelae? Is this the case for all sundays??? And pings too I suppose...

    Any other things I should know?

    Pardon that but this is my first actual picture being posted :cool:!! This is a D. Adelea and I keep mine in a 10 gallon aquarium with florescent lights leaving a crack open for circulation.

    Well since I have the power to post pictures now...Here is the top view of the D. Adelea. Do not mind the dirt on the leaves (just transplanted it) or the carpenter ant which had a nice slow agonizing death :biggrin: ...O' Ya!! Alright time to come down from my cloud but not all the way, hope you enjoy the pictures.

    D.adelae needs pretty high humidity, but placing it in a tank and misting it daily is great. they like shaded light, but i grow mine in direct sunlight and is fine. i have mine in a mix of long fibered shagnum and perlite in a potted terraium and in natural sunlight.

    Hi

    I've had my ups and downs with d. adelae but now they seem happy. I switched soil to mostly LF sphagnum with some peat/perlite mixed in. They are now in a tank with humidity around 70+ or more. I've read they like 80% humidity but I don't think it has to be that high. They are now dewey, blooming and producing babies so apparently they are happy. I just added two more (from Exotic Gardens of course). Mine didn't do well with direct light (even partial)...but seem happier under the fluorescent tank light.

    Tamlin and Martin grow beautiful d. adelae and might have some advice.

    Nice pics Travis!

    Good luck with your new plants, Parasuco. :-)

    Suzanne

    I grow mine at the end of my grow tubes (less light) in long fiber live sphagnum on top of sphagnum/pearlite mix in cool conditions 75Fd/59Fn, with high humidity. I keep mine wet, with visable water showing at the surface of the substrate. They are in an undrained glass bowl in a dmall terrarium. I give mine a few hours broken morning sun.

    Interesting, I would have thought they would prefer drained soil. I think I'll try that... I have some excellent containers with no drainage.
