    Unhappy

    I was wondering what soil mixture to use for D. adelae? Also, how much water does this plant like the most?

    Standard cp mix of 50/50 sand and peat is fine. I keep mine a lil on the wet side, usually an inch deep in the tray then let the tray run dry before refilling.

    Cheers

    Mine are in a 1:2 mix of non-fertilized perlite and Canadian sphagnum peat moss. I make sure they are always moist, putting a little water in the trays when I think they need to be a little more moist. They're doing pretty good.

    Same here, but with perlite instead of sand, and i don't let it dry out.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    I grow mine in LFS and they grow like weeds. Started with one half dead plant from Lowes and I now have 3 pots overflowing. Keep them humid and they will be happy.

    Thats them in the corner of the picture.
