I'd offer you some but I am pretty depleted of flytraps at the moment. I have been ransacked by nieces, nephews, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and even an entire girl scout troop. I am pretty sure I gave the plant in the picture away already. But that should give you a hint as to it's growing habits as I have given away more bulbs than I have ever bought and still have enough to grow back out.
I have a few single crown but flowering d. filiformis if you still need some and mass doesn't have any. They look like crap now as they are about to go dormant. I also have some seed I can send to you too.
Perhaps a pic of the plant will help. D. filiformis goes dormant very early. Most of mine are beginning to show the beginning stages of dormancy themselves. By late August D. filiformis is dormant here if I recall.

really? the teeth looked green so i thought it was something more exotic
It's definitly not dormant it hasn't formed a hibernaculum, just dead leaves

Plus I have other temperate sundews which are still producing new leaves
How much would you want for one of those mature filiformis' (filiformises filiformi?)
i took a picture of it no leaves no hibernacula http://s1110.photobucket.com/albums/h443/cpsammich/
Edit: Picture isn't there any more
At the moment (9-9-11) it just looks like a pot of lfs

You're very close to me, I live in Fredericksburg. If your filiformis dies I have a few extras I could part ways with.
That thing look pretty crispy. I'd still hold on to it to see what it does. Sundews are tougher than they look.

It's been over a month and still nothing
Should I start looking for a replacement?
