    I seem to have really bad luck growing any of the Drosera in the petiolaris complex. I live in South Florida...so my conditions are right. I grow them in full sun and sit them in trays of water. Anyone have any pointers? I notice that they tend to get algae on the surface of the soil more than any of my other Drosera. It looks like it chokes them a bit. But I don't like repotting them because they don't like it. I would appreciate any advice.

    I'll have to watch this thread closely. I too am in S FL, and have quite a petiolaris jones. I just received seed of 6 species and am really very interested in them working out.

    Where are you Setep? I'm in Miami. And I know what you mean. I've been into the petiolaris Sundews for a while. I haven't been as successful as I'd like. I just have a hard time getting them established. Maybe growing them from seed is the way to go.

    I'm in Fort Pierce. (not really south compared to you)
    I have one actual paradoxa that's hanging in, making news leaves and all. I really have high hope for the seeds. I'll keep you posted.

    perhaps you should try growing them inside under lights? I grow mine in a covered 20 gal long tank with cfl's.
    This group is a bit finicky and growing them outside with all the weather variables is probably a bit tricky.
    Don't most of the petiolaris growers on this site grow under lights or at least indoors?

    Yes, sure do! These plants love high temperatures year around. I would think that they'd do well in FL outdoors. I topwater my plants daily, or there abouts and use the tray system. When the water evaporates... I topwater again. This has been working great for me.
