I have been growing D. aliciae for quite a long while now, and I have found time and time again that it is stem forming. Especially in crowded conditions (when on has an artificial or natural mound of D. aliciae clustered together) I find that the plants eventually seem to get "suffocated" and commit mass suicide. Anyone have any ideas as o the exact cause?
From what I have seen the plants seem to be killed by a fungus that attacks the dead leaves beneath the "surface" of the D. aliciae which eventually attacks the plants themselves. Has anyone had similar experiences with this species? With other species? Also, what temp & moisture conditions has this happened in?
