    Outdoors in your area one of the best bets is anything from the binata complex. They grow in just about any media, take extemes in temp, don't mind occasional droughts and come in a variety of sizes. I particularly like the multifida "extrema" and dichotoma "small red" but the others are all nice too.

    My D. binatas, especially multifida extrema, have proven to be some of my toughest and most vigorous CPs. As you said, they can handle extremes in temperature with no problem and even tolerate me forgetting to water them for a few days. They're great plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Where did you get your D. adelae from? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I have a Adelae in a small pot(indoors) and it rotted all the way after sitting in some distilled water. So I took it out of the water and gave it more light. Is there anything else I can do to save my plant?

    I water most of my sundews by taking a bulb syringe, filling it with water, and watering the top of the soil until it looks damp again. If I put my D.adelae in a tray of water, it usually rots. It takes about 30 minutes a day to water my plants, though, so if you grow alot of cps, then I would try the tray method.

    Maybe the particular plants you have are weak, but they do well by having their pot in a plastic container of water, exposed to the air, by a SE window sill. Some people will take their rotted plant and cut the root into several pieces. Then they place in the soil media and plantlets develop.

    Thanks for the advice. Just to be clear, the tray method means water from the top and let the pot sit in a plastic container? I just want to be sure.

    Open tray just refers to the pot/plant sitting in another container, with water, and exposed or open to the air. It doesn't refer to how one waters the plant. Here is one example:
