    I was suprised that the product was called Flourite, as to me, that is the mineral that is purple/clear/green(seen at gem/mineral shows) and glows under a black light. This stuff was tiny grained, high in iron stuff that looked just like the laterite I have.

    I grow my petiolaris dews in equal parts of peat, perlite and sand and also in mixes with long fibered sphagnum, peat, sand and perlite.

    Awesome Pic! Is that D. petiolaris, itself?
    Mr. Samia once told me 70% perlite, 30% milled sphagnum. I don't know if Sean is lurking around these days or not.
    Good stuff everyone, thanks for the feedback!

    Regards,

    Joe

    Hi Joe,

    Actually, that is D.paradoxa. I grew them from seed to a three in size in less than a year. Hopefully they will flower and produce seeds.

    Yes, if done correctly (use the search engine!).

    CP2K,

    Are you sure that it is a pure D. paradoxa? I could be wrong, but i looks like it has some D. lanata in it. Haven't got such a hybrid myself, but the fuzzy petioles look different from the D. paradoxa I have seen.

    Regards,

    Christer

    Hi Chris,
    These were grown from seeds from Lowrie labeled as paradoxa-100km north Drysdale River Station, Kimberley. They have a little more hair than the paradoxa I got from Dean, but otherwise, I cannot see any difference in the rosette.
