    Hi VFTgrl and welcome to the foruums! For a rosetted sundew, this looks different enough from plants that all look like variations of a spatulata. It certainly doesn't look like anything I have in my collection, but it really looks like an elongated spatulata. Do they have any more of them? Would you be interested is some sort of trade for one or leaf cuttings thereof?

    Getting back to how to handle it, if it SI some sort of cross between those two, I keep all my spatulata & capensis on a south facing window sill, open tray, mix of sand & peat, topdressed with LFS. They are both tropicals and do well on window sills, all year round.

    Take it from a person who moves plants around a lot - inside, outside, kitchen attic.... the less moving around, the better. It's easy to chock a plant, particularly one that hasn't has time to establish itself. If you do move a plant, it's best to do so gradually. Specifically, from inside to out, it's best to put it in shade for several days and gradually move it to direct sunlight.

    Another caveat about outside is the possibility of aphids. I have bad luck with tropicals getting them - spatulata, capensis, adelae...

    Hey jimscott:
    I know nothing about leaf cuttings, if you can tell me how to do it I'll gladly send you one. I was looking at your gallery, and fancy that D. paradoxa you have.
