    The following sundews of mine literally NEVER STOP FLOWERING!

    - D. capensis
    - D. spatulata

    It's really crazy. It seems as soon as one flowerstalk becomes black and I chop it off to collect seed, another one is right behind it, growing in its place. Are my plants just really happy? Whatever it is, it's amazing to watch. Does anyone else have this "problem"? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_r_32.gif[/img]

    LOL! Yes! Time to move you on to more difficult plants! These are the guppies of the CP world. Let me know when you get a D. adelae or a U. sandersonnii (blue) to bloom. Nonetheless, good growing.

    Not quite sure exactly [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Go to my website, then to "Terrariums", then to "Minibogs" where you'll find all the specs of my growing conditions. It was the D. adelae in the first minibog that flowered for me. It did so about three weeks after I planted it in there, so I'm guessing the conditions were favorable. After it flowered, the main plant died back and was replaced by four plantlets which are still growing in there to this day (which reminds me, I need to update my website quite a bit more!).
