    I posted earlier to find if D.adelae roots will produce new plants. They are only about one twentieth of an inch thick... (I think I mentioned earlier that they are a tenth of an inch but they are actually thinner)...

    New plants are sprouting!! Cool!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Nice. I have one little plantlet going up from my D. adelae, and my main plant is waking up from it's possum act. We both have something to drink to. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    That is very cool that you can actually cut roots and get them to grow. D. adelae is a very odd plant! LOL

    Well, yea I know but I've just never really thought about it, but then again when you have all those little babies pop up next to the mother plant you kinda assume as much.

    Thought I'd just throw in one of mine now:



    and a pic of the parent plant after it was submerged underwater for two weeks - don't ask...



    Ahhh, now it seems obvious to reproduce D.adelae by root cuttings. Hmmm, so where do those tiny plantlets which pop up next to the mother plant come from? Nope, not from the soil, not from a non-existent bulb or underground tuber...ahhh they must come from the roots of course!
