    Just a quick question about D.graminifolia. Will it grow well with temps around 85F during the day and about 72F at night? I have one one the way, so any tips on how to grow this plant successfully would be greatly appreciated.

    Don't know if it's ideal, but mine was getting that and warmer when I had them at the lab.

    D.graminifolia is a South American species that generally prefers warm days and cooler nights. Mine seem to grow faster in the winter when my indoor temps are 75F/65F day/night. In the summer, temps are 85F/75F day/night and while the plant doesn't die, it grows slower.

    Some people report no problems with higher night temps but I've seen a difference with my plant.

    I grow mine in pure new zealand LFS 4" under 160W cool white fluorescent lighting (14h photoperiod), in 50-80% humidity.

    If the plant is doing well, it can send up divisions nearby. Wait until these are large enough then you can put them in a separate pot. I haven't had any luck with leaf cuttings.

    Good luck with it.

    D. gramnifolia, like stated before is a Brazilian Drosera. IN essence, a highland plant. Cool nights, hot days. Grow in LFS or living LFS in a near waterlogged state with many drainage holes in the pot. I can get a photo of my setup if you wish.
