    Hi all,
    I am a newbie at sundews, VFTs and Sarracenias. Have killed many VFTs and Sarrracenia in my life. But very glad to say that my 2nd shot at dews, grown from seed, was successful! And I owe it all to Jason and brother, who have been very kind to help me and trade many cool plants with me.

    Plants from seed:

    D.spatulata


    D.intermedia



    They were also very generous with trade items:

    'pink venus'


    D. binata (supposed to be dichotoma giant but still young)


    and just for those who enjoy it, (sadistic or just CP-obsessed?): [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]


    Do the plants seem OK? healthy? I know the spatulatas seem crowded, will transplant, besides those, are any others in bad shape? I am still newbie in this area so need all the help I can get. As you noticed, these are only the begginer plants, am hoping to get burmanii, and later the slighlty more challenging adelae...
    Thank you so much Jason and Justin! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    (I am from Singapore too btw)
    Thanks

    edit: for those who were wondering, the intermedia is strong and sticky, but I doubt it could have caught a house fly all by itself: I did the killing for that one! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Great work! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Just leave the D.spatulata. They won't suffer too much if you don't separate them. In fact, when you do, you'll probably end up with all the dew on your hand and tattered plants. They flower readily in our climate so don't worry that they will be extinct from your pots. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Unless you use a fine tweezer...but then again you may end up breaking their fine roots...so... lol

    Nice plants. I would increase their light. The sundew tentacles should be reddened.

    hey lam!
    well, nice collection. i feel that your dews can do with more light intensity to deepen their colouration to give their colour to the max!

    My spathulas are slightly maroonish, the ones cindy pass to me... oops, cindy i know i owe u some byblis and burmannis! will do them soon. there is a new batch of burmanni flowers coming right up! sorry ah!

    Great plants!

    I love how your D. intermedia took down that house fly [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/blues.gif[/img]

    By the way, how long ago did you start your D. spatulata from seed?

    Edit: Nevermind about the house fly! I just read your passage about how you did the killing for the plant. Oh well, it was cool to think of the possibility [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    Hi,
    ok, more light, just not much space here... they should flower soon right? Oh, and I started about 4 months ago, I was very happy with results!
    Hey you have D. burmanii seeds coming up? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I may be interested, can you PM me if you have spare when the time comes?
    Thanksfor all comments

    No need to seperate D. spatulata. I have mine crowded and all fighting like they should. And they have already bred like a shelf-full of plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Looks like the plants love your place, I don't think they can get much more light than that!
