    Hi, Just got a small one of these from B&Q, its in very good condition and has lots of new growth, there were some slightly larger ones but these were dry as a bone [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Do these plants require a dormancy (pitchers are only approx 2-3 inches tall so far)

    Thanks

    Andy

    Hi Andy,
    Yes they do require a dormancy, as you are from Liverpool, you could try growing it outside (now&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] in a sunny wind sheltered spot, or buy a cold frame (V. good for low growing US CP, available also from B&Q etc)
    Best Regards

    Hey nice plant. Mine was about that big when I got it, only it had a flower. The flower was nifty (cool). The flowers on a p. pitcher last a long time and do not really render how the plant grows. It may just take a little longer for a pitcher to form.

    P.S. Nice sundew. What kind is it, I may get me one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Give them lots of sun and they look like this...



    This plant originally came from Lowes and was left for dead. After a couple of weeks in my mini bog it sproute and is happy now.
