    I have a tiny one, it does nothing at all. Its like 3/4 of an inch with green, dull leaves and won't change at all.

    Oh yeah.. so as tamlin said he grows it in live moss, perhaps i should transplant.

    edit again: AFter thinking about this it's really bothering me. sorry to intrude on this topic, but really-- what can I do for it? Its in very humid conditions,.. semi wet, I have no idea what soil- never transplanted it.

    It took me a couple of years to get my plant to do anything but sit there.

    Hi Tamlin:
    Although the picture is not clear, hope you like that and discover more.

    Yes, that is certainly the flower of D. neocaldonica, the styles are quite unique and unmistakable.

    Thanks for the seed photos! They are as I expected very similar to D. spatulata. Good work Sam, it was nice of you to take the time to do that.

    Thanks Tamlin!
    I hope that I can buy a better instrument for research on future!

    Can not really add much here as Tamlin, Capslock and Phil said most of it however I can say that given a slow enough change over the plant can adapt to lower humidity and higher temps. It took me almost a year to harden off a TC batch of these but after that they did and are continuing to do very well. I had them in the crawlspace for a time with my highlanders but recently moved them inside to my Genlisea tank because of lack of space. They have done fine in there even with temps of 75+ perpetually.

    Right you are Pyro, this is a real bear to get established but once it takes the plant is really no more fussy than D. rotundifolia. This one needs to be outside I think, it has never prospered for me indoors even with lots of lights above it. It really is a fascinating plant. I can also add that it is quite drought tolerant, one of the few Drosera that survived last years brutal drought here, but grew best as a semi aquatic for me.
