    Drosera esmeraldae

    All -

    I have several young (slightly less than dime-sized) Drosera esmeraldae plants for trade. These are ~6 month old seedlings. The come from seed produced by my mother plant (flowers), which appears to match all the characteristics of the true species and was given to me by a reputable source. When adults, these plants should look like this.

    I've had success growing this species in a tank with high humidity, daytime temperatures which rarely reach 80 and nighttime temperatures in the 50s to low 60s, i.e. my ultra-highland tank. In my environment, it grows near D. latifolia and D. montana var. tomentosa/D.tomentosa.

    I am looking to trade for other highland tropical/tepui-dwelling Drosera except D. latifolia and D. tomentosa. I am willing to postpone trades until temperatures cool down.

    Plants will be shipped potted.

    Thanks,
    -N

    I would have offered D. spiralis, but when I checked on them this morning they had all melted to nothing. Gah!

    Would you be interested in D. kaieteurensis (Chimanta Tepui) ? I have one about the size of an index finger-nail, but it's already flowered so I don't think it gets much bigger.
