    Well, since all the threads seem to have been deleted, would any of you mind answering some quick questions?

    1) I've heard that this plant doesn't require a dormancy. Is this correct?
    2) Does the King Sundew do well in terrariums? I plan on growing mine in a tank lit by two 23 watt compact flourescents.
    3) Is the water tray method suitable for Drosera regia?
    4) Does it grow fast? In other words, since I'm purchasing a "small" plant, how long will it take to mature?

    Thanks!

    Deleted? I just searched for keyword "regia" and it pulled up five pages worth of old threads. Just be sure to adjust the "search from" field at the bottom of the page to say "from the beginning" and the search function should pull up all of the old threads [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Good luck,
    Corey

    D. regia is a beautiful plant. Grows well for me with highland Nepenthes. It's in an 8" pot sitting in about an inch of water. When growth slows for a short time in Winter, I cut back the water a little.

    Have fun with it,

    Correct you are! I should have made the effort to scroll down to ensure that not only the current month was selected. (where's the embarrassed smiley?).

    Anyway, all you ever need to know will be found amongst those 5 pages of archived threads.

    To my knowledge, no threads have been deleted. The forums have been pruned only once and that was a very long time ago and only "useless" posts were deleted...nothing "meaty."

    As for D. regia, mine was slow to get started growing, but once it did, it grew very well. It does seem to "die back" or rest every so often but each time it starts new crowns. It is growing back now from the last rest producing 8 new crowns in addition to the 3 remaining older crowns. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I grow mine almost as an aquatic. It was in cooler conditions under lights in my basement planted in pure LFS with redwood mulch in the bottom of the pot.

    Its quite a beautiful plant.

    Beautiful photos Bob...I love the flower!
