    Congratz. Any baby pictures?
    I'm getting an armload of new plants when I go back home for the holiday - a little Xmas gift to myself. I'm getting a couple as gifts but, well... they're more for me. I'm sure we all know a little about that. :)

    D. slackii is one of my favourite rosetted dews. I've been growing one since this fall, and I've learned to give it LOTS, and I mean LOTS of light. Like, a 42W compact fluorescent and reflector sitting 3" above it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Have fun! It's a beautiful species!

    I take it she gave you $$ for X-mas?
    That would be an astute person to actually go out and track that down as a gift, lol.
    Amori, you grow yours in LFS? For a peat-growing plant in Nature, I found it did not like peat/sand, but then again the silica I get around here is so fine.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Hi Joe
    I grow mine in a mixture of peat and perlite (though I hate the stuff) and it's doing great so far, and also have a ton of seedlings from the seeds that fell out of the dried flowers when I bought it.
