Only for me to say two things about its cultivation; impeccable and wonderful.

Best regards,

Rodrigo

Wow, very lush healthy looking plants. Especially the D. madagascariensis! I've never seen one so "bushy" before. Your N. ovata is looking impressive too.

May I ask what conditions you're growing D. cunefolia in?

thanks Devon,the cuneifolia is growing indoors on a south facing window sill ,it has now lost all red pigment in the winter sun but has grown quite large (looks pretty cool like alba)in the spring it will be placed outside in a plastic propagator with the front left open,window sill is pretty cool about 60 f ,i have tried a couple of times with leaf pullings but so far none have taken

Hi Greg.I am stumbling my way through growing hilaris.Its in a 50/50 peat perlite mix and growing on a chilly single glaze south facing window sill.In summer i let the pot dry alot and the plant stopped growing but two small plantlets grew from the base.I now water about 10 mm in a tray and let it dry between watering (funny i see you are from harborne i am working in wentworth rd today.small world).When i dried out the pot i still watered once a week but no tray,the plant first slowed in growth and the plantlets appeared and then all plants formed a loose dormant bud,i then after the hottest months returned them to the tray,i thought they would never resume normal growth,and the smallest plantlet is only just showing signs of normal growth,so more luck than judgement

Very nice robcantleyi. Looks like it has had a recent growth spurt.

Thanks for the info on D. cunefolia.
