Hello, as some of you may remember, I moved all my cps to my new larger, better light getting green house last month (about march 25th)
Anyway, at this time my D. regia 'Big Easy' looked like this

And now, already... It has colored up to this:

I just found it interesting and thought I'd share it.

Well, for 1, I've never been able to keep a "typical" alive for any period of time. Now with the better green house I'd be willing to give another one a shot if anyone has one

Really though, check out the standard here.

alex, I honestly dont' know... Are you talking about light requirements? In my old green house it grew okay and got only 3-5 hrs of sun.
But in the new houst with lots more light, i think it obviously looks better.

LOL! You're not the first person to ask. But yes, yes it was. The person I got my D. regia 'Big Easy' from (he who named it) Was playing around with different things, and had tried this... And i've been too lazy to transplant it. ...i'll ge to it though some time. By then there should be tons of roots in that 6" tall pipe to do root cuttings. haha

uhm... it has a flat bottom that is plugged (and small holes drilled around the bottom) ....it's pretty stable. I don't think it has ever fallen over.
