    Here's a photo of some recently-germinated D. derbyensis babies from seed won in the NASC auction (from Jason Wong - one of the few seeds I've gotten to germinate).
    There are actually 4 plants in this photo. From the larger plant - there is one at 1:00, 4:00 and a tiny one in the lower left corner.

    In another post recently, we mentioned some fertilization options. This photo was taken approximately one week after the small trap at 6:00 (on the large plant) was fertilized with pulverized bloodworms (it's still darker than the others with no tentacles showing). At the time, it was easily the longest arm on the plant.

    If there are any other petiolaris complex nuts around, I just uploaded some photos in CPUK (sorry for not also putting them here - took too long to load them in 1 place) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] Recent petiolaris complex photos
    All the best,

    The larger one germinated a few days before 10/8/05 (that's when I discovered it). The photo was taken on 10/21/05. This plant is almost a mutant with it's growth rate. I had another D. derbyensis sprout in another pot on 9/11/05 and it is roughly the same size as the 2 medium plants in this pot.

    Knock on wood, all of these plants are doing well (except for the smallest - that one had an inadvertant mishap [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] ). I'll post add'l picts as they mature.
    All the best,

    Hmm... I can't see the smallest one, but at least the other three look healthy. The best of luck to you growing the sundews. (I have never tried growing sundews myself.) =]

    Here they are as of 11/11/05 (they'd probably be larger but I've been delinquent with fertilization):

    They are beautiful! I bid on those seeds but you stole them away. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] lol

    Looks like they found a great home though. Congratulations on your success. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Update: These guys grew very well for a while then virtually stopped through much of the winter - only putting out a few leaves here and there. It looks like they've started to grow again...

    My apologies for changing the orientation of the photo - imagine that the photo is rotated 180 deg (the larger plant on the bottom is the smallest plant at the top of the previous pics)
    All the best,
    Ron
