There are many kinds or locations of D.spatulata, don't know what does (fi) mean... filiformis maybe?

i put them all in the same pot. i might have to take the adelae out to have a pot of its own. the root system on it is huge!

The Adelae like a more shaded spot then the others. Bright, indirect Sun. You may want to transplant that one into it's own container. Adelae will grow bigger (longer leaves) in a deep pot, smaller in a shallow pot but will produce lots of baby plants.

Like this (2 inch deep tray)
