    D. prolifera & regia as beginner plants? Hey, I'm a beginner! But seriously folks, I have all of the others and they are real easy to propogate, utilizing a variety of soil combinations. Personally, upon receipt, I would prepare a pot for each, with some sort of lid/covering, to deal with shipping stress/shock. I normally mix sand & peat, and add LFS on top. I rinse all my media and use the "open tray" method, at southish-facing window sills. For the first couple days I keep covered and away from direct sunlight. After that I open them up during the day and cover by night for another couple days. If all is well, they should be able to be opened up 24/7 and placed at the window sill. Don't worry about loss of dew on existing leaves. It happens. Look for new growth. As long as you see that, things are okay. Enjoy!

    I can't speak for the prolifera, but my adelae have been on mid-to-upper 80's all summer, open tray.

    D. prolifera grows very well for me in a terarruim well away from the lights. I think it is a bit more tender than D. adelae.
