    really? 99 times out of 100 a drosera picked up anywhere but a CP nursery is capensis, spatulata or adelae. congrats on surprising us. after looking it over again im leaning twords intermedia but im not big on temprate drosera, wish Tamlin would have stuck around longer he prolly would have been able to nail it right quick. hopefully some other drosera nut will chime in.

    Just got back guys! I picked up a nice Pitcher, some supplies, and did some re-potting. I made the soil up of sphagnum moss, peat moss, and some perlite. I hope I did alright! I know it may have been a bad time to repot, but I simply figured better now than in 2 weeks and disturbing them again. Here are the photos: Also, in the photo with my finger, I was curious if that is too much/too little water? Thanks Guys!

    looks like a young S. purpurea to me. as far as the water, if it was me and they are outside you definatly need more. i usually keep 2 inches in mine. if a couple of my pings were in taller pots i would keep atleast 3 inches worth of water. dont worry they will not rot, soak them

    Do you feel that the flytraps will make a comeback? And I didn't realize it but I got a 2 for 1 with the Drosera's Also, it may go down to the 50's tonight, whereas our house will be low 70's, but likley less humid. Better inside or outside. Please realize that I appreciate all of your help so much, I know that I am asking a lot of annoying questions, but I want to succeed and once I know the basics, I can go from there

    the VFT's should bounce back with no problem.

    as far as inside or out. i would bring them inside, temps are fine but i baby mine for the first week or so untill they start growing new roots to make sure they are more firmly planted in the pot incase a gust of wind comes up. oh and one question......................do you have squirrels in your yard/neighborhood?

    Yes we do, will they be a problem? Also, if i bring them inside, should i cover them with anything overnight or leave them all exposed to room temps?

    What do you mean by Sphagnum AND peat moss?? You definately need more water. 50's are fine.. leave them outside. S. purpurea can take even light snowfall. Squirrels are a variable.. I would not worry about them unless they become a problem.
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.
