Babies of all three "Sisters of Queensland". Aren't they precious?
Bonus D. adelae flower.

Adelae is an easy growing weed for me as long as I grow it in a terr. Prolifera is a puzzle for me. It will do well then suddenly decline or crash outright, then recover and be doing well only to decline again or crash. (And the odd thing is it's growing in a terr so conditions are quite stable.). Have never tried schizandra before. Did have an Andromeda once, but apparently it had never heard of "hybrid vigor." 🙄

I've had the adelae "sudden death" issue, but it came back from leaves and roots. Don't know what caused the initial crash, but it seems fine now.

I grow the prolifera and schizandra with my highland Nepenthes and Heliamphora, and they are slow but steady. This year, prolifera has been living up to its name a little too well. I lost two pups, but I traded one away and there's still three more. It blooms constantly.

Never tried 'Andromeda', never got one. Would be interesting to grow.

I'd been waiting forever for them to come back in stock at RCP and got excited when I got an email this morning that CPN just added them to their inventory. Unfortunately, they're apparently the one singular plant that they've decided to overcharge for, go figure.

Capitalism!!!

Man, should've bought the $20 one that someone in my plant club up north was selling. Missed opportunity, it was at least 4 inches across...
