    The pygmies are wonderful plants. They are small...but they are mighty. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    They look great in large clumps. And of course they mature plants make gemmae in the fall (little green balls that are free-floating plant buds) which is always interesting.

    Nitidula x pulchella is a nice one. Very pretty. I have some here in my office.
    I don't feed mine...they catch whatever comes their way.

    Some of the pygmy Drosera can become as much a weed as capensis. Once I had a couple D. nitidula x pulchella and now I have thousands all over the place. The gemma are very small and catch a ride on fingers, clothes, etc. In one year, they took over a 12 x 24 inch tray of VFT seedlings and smothered the baby VFTs.

    Hi Dino, it was a gift. I didn't beat you to it as I don't have any so don't feel left out. It is all at the school.

    We haven't been feeding ours as I was under the impression that was not a good thing when the plants were immature.

    Hi PlantAKiss, they were really cute when we first received them and planted them up but it went downhill from there. I will take the lids off tomorrow and see if that resurrects the one that is still hanging in there.

    Hi BobZ, what are you doing differently than us that yours are becoming a weed and ours are fizzling?

    Ah, you can always collect the gemmea, Laura.
    Then you can lay them onto a moist peat sand mix at home and you will have plants for yourself. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Its good feeding them, the pygmys are probably mature.
