    The basement area where I grow them only gets residual heat from the furnace and regularly drops into the low 40's at night. Days are in the 50's or 60's depending on the weather. I grow them right beside my tuberous Drosera and certain ZA species which love these temps. I should throw my D.slackii and D.hamiltonii down there as well come to think of it.....

    Dang! It sounds like I need a basement. I can't match those temps but I'd be very curious to see if they encourage slackii and hamiltonii to bloom.

    Dayum mang! Your glandulifera's really going off! You're beating me and Luca for sure! Anyone else get one??
    Too weird to live, too rare to die.

    Yeah Greg, the glandulifera is growing much faster than anticipated. It's very common for seed grown plants to grow at irregular rates.

    I'll probably throw them down there this weekend. I assume at least with D.hamiltonii that flowers will come in spring after temps go up and light cycle is raised. I'll keep you posted.

    Thank you Man-Maiden.

    Mark, you may be interested to hear that D.spiralis is also sending up a flower stalk for me for the first time. Pics to follow shortly.......
