    Drosera

    Hello everyone, I'm from Manchester Uk just starting to grow CPs, my son 7 years old like very much Droseras. We are afraid about to buy or how to care due our weather, we are reading books and looking out on the internet. Any way we would like if possible to get some examples from those who already have (it can be any kind of CPs), we could pay for the delivery. Thanks a lot to those who might help. Valdir

    Welcome to Terraforums. I'm sure some of our UK growers like mobile and corky can PM you information on sources. And judging from the photographs they've post and the articles I've read in The Carnivorous Plant Newsletter many parts of the UK look to be ideally suited for growing many Drosera species.

    hello Vladir,south African sundews grow well in the UK outside in a sunny position ,i grow mine in a cheap plastic propagator ,and are easy to get hold of,you will need to bring them inside and have them in a sunny window during winter from say October to April ,they will not like frost at all and will either die back to the roots or just plain die (as a rule) i am pretty sure i can post links on here for UK suppliers as they do not deliver to the US,these are a couple of nurseries i use and trust,http://hccarnivorousplants.co.uk/ and http://hccarnivorousplants.co.uk/ i think most will agree a good easy and very nice looking sundew is d.capensis

    Welcome to TerraForums! If you need any information regarding the growing of most any carnivorous plant, you can check out www.sarracenia.com or get The Revised Savage Garden by Peter D'Amato. Since you're interested in sundews, definitely check out http://www.growsundews.com as well.
