    This will be my fourth season with D.cistiflora. For some reason last year, they only produced about 2" of erect growth. I'm hoping they will be in their full glory this time around.

    Thanks Jen. Many of the tuberous species have only recently arisen for the winter. Their full glory is still some weeks off.

    Your sundews are really amazing. I especially like the Drosera tomentosa var. tomentosa and both Drosera squamosa. Two sundews I haven't really seen before. Nice update

    Thanks guys.

    Eric, those species have a reputation of being difficult to grow. I find D.tomentosa to be as easy as any tropical Drosera, they even tolerate the summer heat very well for a South American species. I think people tend to be scared of the tuberous species like D.squamosa. They're only available seasonally from a few sources and can cost a lot more than your average Drosera. That coupled with their dormancy requirements seems to turn people off from them a bit. They're well worth the price and the extra effort involved in growing them though and after a season or 2, you'll find their dormancy to be a breeze.

    your Droseras look like candy. Especially the Drosera squamosa, they look like the candy gummies but MORE SUPREME. Am I the only one who want to eat them as I scroll through the photos? Also, I have decided I need a Pinguicula cyclosecta after seeing yours!!!! Thank you so much for updating us with your collection.
