    Hi guys, my plants haven't increased in size much or done anything really "noticable". I am wondering does this hybrid requite some sort of dormancy or is it a tropical like D. rotundifolia "evergrow" ? Thanks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I planted some of these from seed about a year ago. Of about 20 seedlings, only two have actually grown and it has only been in the last couple of months. They seem to take a very long time to grow. My plants are currently about 1 1/2 in diameter.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Howdy, Nikc, mine too are currently about that size. They've been catching some little gnats in the greenhouse, so I know they are eating....maybe this is how big they get??

    D. anglica CA x HI easily gets to be 2 or 3 in. tall. If kept in non-tropical conditions, growth will slow or stop entirely. Even the plants from Kaui'i will form loose hibernacula if the temperature is too low.

    Hi Dustin,

    Please correct your labels if they match the name in the post title - the correct ID is d. anglica CA x HI, not d. anglica HI x CA. The seed-baring parent always is listed first.

    cheers,

    Your substrate may be slowing them down, too. They do best in live sphagnum.

    The D. anglica CA X HI doesn't need a dormancy. I don't remember if I've grown these guys from seed before. But they sure flower profusely!

    Noah,

    International Code of Botanical Nomenclature (ICBN) no longers dictates the seed bearing parent order.

    Now it states:
    Recommendation H.2A

    H.2A.1. It is usually preferable to place the names or epithets in a formula in alphabetical order. The direction of a cross may be indicated by including the sexual symbols ({o+}: female;{o!}: male) in the formula, or by placing the female parent first. If a non-alphabetical sequence is used, its basis should be clearly indicated.
