    D. adelae for beginners

    Since this forum has helped me so much as I've learned to grow CPs, I thought that I'd give back what I could. I understand that Drosera adelae is not a species that is exactly in demand, but it's a great first sundew to grow, and I've got quite a bit extra.
    To clarify, I want these to go to people new to the hobby who haven't grown a sundew yet. I can't be sure that everyone who asks for one meets these qualifications, so we'll be doing this on the honor system.
    These are the sizes I have available:
    Four plants at roughly 1 1/2 inches
    and
    Five plants at under 1 inch
    These will be shipped in the small, drained plastic pots that they have been grown from root cuttings in. If for any reason your plant doesn't survive the shipping and first two weeks at it's new home, please contact me, and I'll see what I can do about sending you a new one. They will be shipped out by, if not earlier than, next Wednesday, September 14th.
    Please add your name to this list and send me a PM with your shipping info. You will be allowed one plant per size. Shipping will be around $5.00 and can only be shipped in the US. If you for some reason can't pay shipping, please contact me, and I'll work something out.

    What if you've only killed all your sundews?

    I find that these are very forgiving plants, and of course you can try one. I have a tank full of ever multiplying root cuttings, so there will be plenty more where these came from in a few months.

    I was about to ask the same thing..well I've got a tiny D. Binata seedling right now, but that's all that has survived, and it's only been in my possession a couple weeks.

    Not sure if I count? I've been keeping CPs for about a year now, and somehow have managed to make my Darlingtonia and Drosophyllum thrive while at the same time struggle to keep my Dionaea alive. :\ I've never bought a Drosera... I just have a D. binata and a D. capensis that came as hitchhikers with my other plants, and while I'm interested in sundews, I just worry about how they'd handle the humidity (or, rather, the lack of it).

    Since I'm probably more of an "intermediate" CP grower rather than a complete n00b, I'll put my name down for a small plant, but if others come along that have less experience than me you can bump me off the list.

    D. adelae

    I just acquired 1 dew recently, not sure if it will make it or that it's just growing too slowly. I'll put my name for a small one too and let you decide. Thanks for the opportunity.
