I was given some adelae last year but they didn't take too well to the climate. Yours looks really good. The Petiolaris Complex ones and indica do better here.

That's strange as they are from Queensland. Bright indirect light is all they need. And a water tray. They grow like weeds for me.

They're more of a rainforest type Utric where humidity is constantly higher and temperatures are more even and mild. I'm in the northwest where the temperature range is greater and humidity can get quite low during the dry season. With Petiolaris Droseras I've measured water and soil temperatures around the plants during the day in excess of 50C and they thrive in it. But when I tried growing adelae and binata they both gave up fairly quickly. Maybe I should have tried starting them at the beginning of the wet season to get them settled in and then they might have been better able to withstand the stressful period.
