    Thanks!

    I posted a little info about my setup on the OCPS forums and I figured I would share it here:

    I grow my plants on a shelf under dual t5's, in the winter they get fairly cool temps so they don't have as much dew. In the summer it gets really hot because my house lacks air conditioning. The temps right now are probably 60-70 degrees and the humidity is maybe 50-60-70 percent.

    The plants that have impressed me the most are the petiolaris dews and the queensland dews as they grow quite well in the very cool conditions although they are in nearly 100 percent humidity. I think they don't mind cool conditions as long as the humidity is high.

    Almost everything is in 50/50 peat silica. The regia is pure milled sphagnum, the schizandra is in peat/perlite with live sphagnum on top and the petiolaris are in two parts silica to one part peat.

    The regia has also surprised me, I grew it from seed in January and it was actually the first CP seed I ever germinated. I only got one out of about ten seedlings to survive but it is probably going to be a very hardy clone considering it survived 90 degree tempratures during the summer.

    Thanks!

    I took some more photos a few days ago...

    Drosera capensis, one of the most underrated sundews if you ask me:



    A teeny Drosera slackii seedling, I only got about 6% germination:



    Drosera burmanii "beerwah, australia":



    Some petiolaris, since they are one of my photographical focuses:

    D. ordensis:



    D. paradoxa:



    D. falconeri:



    D. derbyensis has never done really well for me but it's still alive in the mediocre conditions I give them so I can't really complain:

    Thanks!

    My derbyensis survive but they are small and really lanky, not what they should look like. I am holding out hope that they will do better during the warm summers we have here.

    Thanks!

    I took a few more photos:

    D. adelae:



    D. capensis "typical":



    D. regia:



    D. venusta:



    Cephalotus looks like it got hold of some lipstick:



    N. veitchii with a little bit of banding:



    This one is of the nectar secreting protuberance underneath the lid but it did not quite turn out:



    I also took some better photos of my setup:
