    I want to buy some sundews, because I can't buy any neps for a while [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] I made a list of some sundews that looks nice, but I don't know if they are easy or require dormancy or any weird growth methods like strafication.
    D. aliciae
    D. venusta
    D. binata something - one that doesn't require a dormancy
    D.madagascarensis
    D.admiralis- forgot how it's spelled
    D.slackii

    Does anyone know any other sundews besides these. I don't want pgymies or any that require dormancy.

    There are tons!

    D. dielsiana
    D. nidiformis
    D. capensis
    D. burmanii

    Those are easy, common ones!

    I heard about those too, I have a D.capensis. You can grow it just by ignoring it :P

    D. scorpioides is technically a pygmy but I think it's a worthy exception if only for its interesting form. I don't think any of the binata strains need dormancy, although they'll slow down if you let them. D. binata dichotoma gets huge, in my experience - I would recommend one of the smaller ones like D. binata multifida. Or the dwarf form that Bugsy grows, I've been wanting to give one of those a try myself. If you have space in your Nep enclosure, D. prolifera has interesting foliage and multiplies quickly by budding offsets from the end of each flower stalk - kept near plenty of moist LFS, it's pretty much unstoppable.

    I have D.scorpiodes. I meant sundews that I don't have currently. I'm mostly interested in D.venusta and D.slackii, they seem like big sundews. Are they easy?
