    I use mix of silica sand and peat moss, with a little perlite or pumice.

    Thanks for the info Homer. I recently purchased one and potted it in sphagnum and perlite. I'll leave it at that for now and see what happens.

    Today I counted 6 new regia plantlets. Thats 2 more than a week ago when I started this topic.

    I have another regia 'Big Easy' that I got at the same time, is about the same size, and is in the same soil mix, as well as watering schedule, etc. Not to mention they are right beside each other. My point is: the only difference is the pot size. The one with the plantlets springing up all other the place is in a 5.5" pot, while the 'Big Easy' with no plantlets is in a 3" pot.

    So, does a larger pot encourage the growth of tiny plantlets from the parents roots?

    [QUOTE]I agree with Andrew. It is not unusual for new regia plantlets to suddenly appear. The likely source is from broken or damaged roots that sprout just like a normal root cutting. It is always nice when plants spontaneously appear (except when the thousands of D. capensis seedlings and U. subulata invade everything).

    I hear ya, I got about 3 or four seedlings in with the plants you sent me

    My regia has produced 4 plants from the parent plant that died back suddenly. I hated to lose the original plant but 4 for 1 ain't bad. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
