    Very nice--looks like there's a bunch there! Looks like they're doing well in LFS.

    I have only one mature plant, but ever since I transplanted it from a 1:1 peat:sand mix to pure LFS, it has vigorously produced new leaves and two baby plants from its base.
    It's definitely one of my favorites.

    And it's growing faster as the temps drop into the low 70/60s
    day/nite. Not surprising considering this brazilian species is said to like cooler temps.

    Have you grown this plant before? How have you grown it?

    Wow, what an amazing looking sundew! I don't think I've ever seen it before...

    Chloroplast, you say it's Brazilian? How interesting. It looks almost like a smaller version of D. regia.

    Add one more sundew to my "Must-have" list [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]

    These guys end up looking more like sparse filiformis than regia. Nice work Dustin, they should pick up in size as they get going, I'm up to 8-10"

    Yes, it's a elegant-looking plant you should give a try. Just be sure to give it the cooler temperatures (<80F) that it likes because it can be finicky when they go higher (at least for me). The problem with these guys is that they usually don't have more than 4-5 thin leaves, so there isn't much for them to lose before croaking.

    Wow! I await the day that mine produces leaves that long.

    Some clones can take heat. I know a few growers here in Atl that have them in their greenhouses where they get 90F temps in the summers. And I knew one grower who had a large pot of them outside during the summer as well.

    Here's mine, ~15 months old, and far less impressive than Dustin's:

    I may just have to put up a trade request for this plant on the Trading Forum. It's just too cool to let pass by [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/blues.gif[/img]
