    Congratulations! And what did you do to deserve this? Most of us get plantlets and have to live through its "playing 'possum".

    I moved it to my grow chamber... it seems to like it there. It is producing plantlets quite prolifically.

    Could you describe your grow chamber or provide a picture? Is there higher humidity, temp, or light? Wht are its conditions?

    The top shelf gets to 90 deg F at 50-60% humidity. It varies more or less linearly to the bottom shelf, which is 60-70 deg F and 40-50% humidity. Each shelf is lit by a pair of T-12 40 W bulbs (4100K color temp).

    Very nice looking! Much better than my makeshift sheliving with plastic pipette containers and strips of 2 x 4's!

    I don't have a way to post pictures, but my D. adelae just went it to bloom, as well. One of the two flower stalks has about 25 buds/flowers on it.

    The plant is one I got for $3 at Lowe's in a 2 or 3" square pot last year.

    For the record, these are my growing conditions:

    5" round pot sitting in a bowl. This is filled with water to near the pot's rim, refilled when the water level drops near the bottom of the bowl. The soil is equal parts sand to peat. The plant is growing about 4 inches below 4 standard 40 watt fluorescent lights. It is just growing in the open air, no terriarium or anything like that.

    On a separate note, I am amazed at the speed at which this thing grows and spreads! It is already in need of a larger pot. I would love to put a single plant in a 12" pot and watch as it carpeted the entire thing with plantlets.

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -
