    I have waaaaaay to many plants flowering lately. The newest discovered flower is D. adelae. Anything i should know about the flowers and seeds?
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    I dunno. They are about half a centimeter large and are nice red color? What do you want to know? Want to be specific?

    Oh, well that sucks. They don't regularly produce seed even if i pollinate them myself?

    What i wanted to know was anything important about pollinating flowers, sowing seed, and anything else that involves propogation.

    D. adelae propagation can be done in your sleep. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] It is a weed that readily propagates itself. You have two options:

    1: Let the plant simply spring up plantlets by itself without changing anything and within a year you will have WELL OVER 20 plantlets some large some small.

    2: Cut up a leaf into 9+. Put the parts on the potting mix you use for D. adelae and simply place it under lights. All parts should grow a new plant. I haven't needed to try this myself, but a friend of mine did and has been extremely successful.

    Darn if only I had not boasted about my adelae then maybe mine would have flowered adn propagate itself like a weed. It seems to be doing better with my new plant in the terrarium in the East Facing window that I use. Sphagnum shades it so thats good

    I've heard they're are like small red stars. I can't wait.

    I recently took a leaf cutting, i didn't chop it up though. Well, i'll have an invasion soon enough, i may GIVE them away online.
