    I received a single plant last year from an online retailer. It is in a 3" pot and it grew so large I wanted to repot it. Imagine my surprise when I unpotted it and saw that it was a HUGE mass of plants and plantlets.

    From that one little pot I pulled over 12 plants out of it. Instead of potting up the original plant, I kept it in the same pot since I just removed all of the extra plantlets from its perimeter.

    I just love my D. adelae!

    Mine's just putting up flower stalks now. I'm kind of hopign it doesn't make seed as I have enough plantlets to deal with and my D. nidiformis spread it's little guys across my collection.

    On the plus side, D. nidiformis and D. capensis planlets for anyone who wants one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Oh great. This is just perfect. It decided to play possum on me, and the flower stalk is about 3" tall, will the flower stalk die off? Also, are there any special conditions that i need to recessitate the adelae?
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Sure thing, in exchange for SASE. I could also use a red dragon cutting if you have one, but it's not required.

    Tuna it flowers slowly. The stalk may just stand for awhile then the flowers will slowly open. Leave it unless the stalk whithers.

    Mine is flowering now too. My flowers are light pink though. I thought they were supposed to be a bright red.
    The mind is like a parachute, it only works when it's open.

    My D. adelae is sending up a scape, too. First time I've had this plant do it. It must like my indoor greenhouse.

    TSG has a nice pic of D. adelae flowers.
