Don't know about D. adelae. Cephalotus seems happy with normal CP
conditions in an average British cool greenhouse (if that means
anything to anyone). I've just got them in peat + sand and stood in
the water tray. Temperatures up to whatever in Summer (say 90F/ 32C)
and down to 45F / 7C in Winter. In full light they get very red -
maybe a little less sun would be better for greener traps. They are
in flower at the moment. Does anyone know what the seed does when
ripe - i.e. does it fall out or what? I have seed the seed (as
supplied from Rowland's) but have no idea how many you get per flower
or anything, and I don't want to lose them.
