    Drosera addict from FL!!!

    i stalk the drosera section of this forum frequently as i'm an extremely new grower, decided it was time to make my first post!
    i started about 3 weeks ago with;
    D. Capensis typical,
    D. Spatulata unsure of location!
    Ping. Primuliflora
    these were my first ever cps but i jumped right in and just received a couple new lil guys!
    D. Filiformis var. Tracyi
    D. Intermedia i suppose its a typical?
    D. Capillaris typical
    D. Binata Dichotoma Red Form
    pics soon when i post an official growlist!

    Most species are just labeled by the species, capensis is given the typical notation because there are many popular forms besides the typical form
    Now depending on how far south you are, capensis may prefer a windowsill to being grown outdoors, mine outside are all dead but will come back in the fall or winter

    Haha, looks like you've figured it out! I think it's the combination of continually high temperatures, strong sunlight, and a lack of nightly temperature drops that gets them
