D. hartmeyerorum Taylors Lagoon, Kimberley


Hi all, this baby germinated in July, the only one from about 10 seed. Despite a regular diet of freeze dried bloodworms and hot summer temperatures outside, growth has been slow although it has accelerated the last couple weeks. I was hoping for seed this late in the season, as this tropical does not do well for me indoors under lights. Will try a heating pad and drier conditions this time to see if these help.
