    Hi Schloaty

    I have a few sarrs that I have to break up -- though none quite as big as a basketball, but big enough the split into a few plants . I do have tons of D. Filliformis and Rotundifolia that I can spare.


    If one of those basketball sized rhizomes just happens to be that S. X Moreii that you had at the NECPS show I would love to try to work out a trade of some sort. That is an amazing plant and I have been lusting after it since I saw it.

    For the first two newbies looking for some beginner plants. 18 years or younger. US only.
    Am I still considered a newbie? I still consider myself as being 18!

    I have one of those. He just turned 50 and he still blasts his music in the car, doesn't pick up after himself and takes his son to see the Who in concert.

    We have to go chronologically, you guys never grow up.

    I saw that plant there, it was very memorable.

    Good Growing.

    Except for that part about not picking up after himself..... "meet the new boss... same as the old boss... we don't get fooled again".

    received plants today! thanks.
    got any tips for growing them? haha thanks.
    very sandy, but a marvel to look at. The capensis was sticky when i was repotting the different clumps.
    Thanks for the extra ping cuttings, but got any suggestions is what i really need.
    thanks for having this great offer for beginners, and most of all, thanks.

    Hi Halt,
    I just nudged the leaves on a peat/vermiculite mix and cover them with saran wrap or you can bag them to keep the humidity up. I'm sure there's a lot listed on rooting ping leaves on the forum and what to root them in.

    Most of the other droseras I use either lfs or a peat/perlite mix. Just don't repot the drosera peltata auriculata as it'll kill the plant. Sounds like that one got shook up in the mail anyways and might not live. It's the only one I believe that had sand in the pot.

    Glad it got there so quick.

    Enjoy, JoAnn
