    Hmm... I think I'll wait until spring. Right now, they don't have any nice growth, and they're still pretty small. Thanks!

    Yeah they are quick. Whenever I feed my seelings a bloodworm/fish food meal, within minuets the leaves are completly folded.

    Hey Copcar, what kind of fish food do you use to feed your sundews? I'm thinking about trying it. Will any ol' fish food work?

    I use Tetrafin Goldfish Flakes, I figure you could use anything. But I saw much more of a reaction by mixing it with bloodworms and crushing it all to a powder. My seedling D. Capensis absolutly LOVE it. I get new, larger leaves the day after feeding every time.

    Does the D Burmanni die off, and do you have to grow from seed each year?

    In my experience D. burmannii acts more like an annual where after flowering it usually dies and then I grow again from seed. But, this has only been a couple years of growing, not enough to say that it is the "norm" for burmannii.

    This is only my first time growing D. burmannii so I'll have to get back to you on that. From what I've heard it dies after it flowers.
