    I was playing around with the camera today and snapped a few photos of some terrarium grown dews.

    These are in 4 inch pots for size reference.

    First is D. adelae which after playing possum for 3 months is finaly puting up new leaves.



    Next is a D. spatulata with nice coloring.



    Last is a D. capensis 'alba'

    Nice dews. May I ask how you light your terrarium? My D.Adelae are also in a terrarium and I was just wondering how your works.

    Isn't D. adelae an interesting paradox of a plant? It seems to range from an incredible hard-to-kill weed to a plant that clings to life (or imitates dead very well )

    I don't think I've read of another plant that has more posts at either end of the spectrum.... (...and your post has both ...)

    Nice plants btw!
    All the best,
