GR>Recently you posted to the CP list that you had a thriving D.
GR>falconeri. What are the growing conditions you have it in: light,
GR>humidity, temperature, soil mix, etc?

Believe it or not, I've got it growing on my windowsill. I've got it
potted in a peat/perlite (2:1) mixture. To ensure high humidity I
covered the pot with the bottom of a plastic soda bottle. It gets about
2 hours of direct sunlight a day and I water it whenever I see the soil
get dry (usually not more than once a week).

I was a little concerned about putting a plant in an semi-enclosed
container in direct sunlight, but it seems that the petiolaris complex
like things hot.

BTW, I've found that my _Cephalotus_ likes these conditions as well.

I'm trying to propagate this thing via leaf cuttings, hopefully I'll
have enough to trade sometime.
