    See I knew it was Brazillian but wasn't sure of what temps it preferred....ANOTHER sundew I can grow, because I am cheap when it comes to heating the greenhouse! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    8-10" holy cow, gigantic beastly plant! Thats bigger or as big as my D. dichotoma "giant" form.

    Chloroplast the reason I have so many is because these are just out of vitro, a few months old. And no this is my first try with it, I did my homework before getting it out of the TC flask. Tamlin said just give it living Sphagnum minced, so out came the blender, and it likes a well drained pot, yet submerged conditions, so I took a nail, heated it with a propane torch and melted a TON of holes in the pot, so it looks more aerated than a strawberry basket you'd find in the grocery store! Just keep the water level just below the soil surface in the pot and change weekly. So far so good, I've had this plant, S. x heterodoxa and D> stolonifera do good out of vitro...only plant that doesn't look so hot is D. cisitflora.

    The cistiflora are a bit touchy, what do you have them in?? If they are not already in it I suggest a switch to a media of 1:3-4 peat:sand. Water by tray but let it dry before adding more. And go for a pot at least 4" deep.

    Thats pretty much what I have them in Travis, really sandy and just a touch damp, same mix I use for my tuberous, a sandy, light airy soil.

    And from what Travis mentioned, it seems some clones tolerate hot temperatures.....just in case your also cheap when it comes to cooling the greenhouse in summer! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Jim, I think they look nice and healthy. Did you grow these from seed?
