    Due to LFS that contained high levels of salt, I lost several of my favorite sundews.
    http://www.**********.com/cgi-bin....t=19744

    This LFS killed all of my D.scorpioides, all of my D.adelae, and all of my typical D.capensis. If any one has any of these plants for trade feel free to PM me. I don't have alot to trade as I use LFS alot and it severely killed off many of my other sundews also. I am especially looking for D.scorpioides and D.adelae as they were my favorite sundews.

    Thanks,

    I thoroughly rinse all live sphagnum that comes my way, and i typically don't use it directly, but grow it in a large tray, and take the excess from that tray, so what goes in my pots is bug- and chemical-free.

    Okay, looks like D. adelae is covered. Rule of thumb with pigmy sundews, such as D. scorpiodes: They have long roots and are very sensitive to being disturbed, like Byblis liniflora. Shipping these plants may be a set up for failure. However, in a few months, everbody and their cousin will be begging to give away gemmae. That's the best route to take.

    Try peat, perlite and sand based mixes for scorpioides and capensis.
