    WOW!!! LLeopardGGecko those are breath taking dews you have there and the pics are AWSOME!!! Can i come to your house and just sit and stare at them for awhile.. I think sundews rule the CP world not only for there beauty but for how cool they really are..
    How hard is it to take care of the D. scorpiodes? Maybe sometime in the future i can get me one.. I have only 1 small D. adelae thats recooping from shipping but its doing pretty good. Thanks for sharring!!!!

    D. scorpiodes isn't hard to take care of at all. I'd compare it to D. capensis:Very hard to kill and it grows like crazy. My plants seem to put out a new leaf just about every day! Plus they're really cool looking plants. I've always loved the look of their leaves...just as the name suggests, they look very scorpion-like, almost as if they're ready to strike

    Very nice plants--your D.adelae is nicely colored.

    Piece 'o' cake! They have a more developed root system than most CP's, so when you do get some gemmae, mix a healthy portion of sand to peat and allow several inches of depth - and don't transplant.

    I grow both the D. scorpiodes and the colony of D. adelae you were asking about in a classic terrarium under 53 watts of light (compact flourescent - mix of warm white light and daylight):



    This picture was taken a few weeks ago, but you get the picture
