    Here they are..now for the questions.

    They are on a runner like thing, but are not sprouting there own roots downward, nor does it look like they have any plants for it. I cut off 2 and planted them in the pot to see what happens...things will be cramped if it works.

    The parent plant is producing much smaller leaves...so much that I was able to downgrade container size back to the PBJ jar(rather than a larger one it had been in before). My guess is that producing flowers and plantlets has it pretty worn out.

    Thanks!

    What is protruding from the bottom of the pot? It just wants to come out from everywhere!

    Yup,It was a little dry before this pic. I watered it soon after.


    Any suggestions for pulling the mother plant through? It keeps on getting smaller as far as leaf size goes.

    generally speaking, for D adelae, the more light youg ive it, the smaller and redder the leaves
