    I just received a D. scorpioides and a D. rosei. Not sure how to care for them and if they need a dormancy or not? They are in my greenhouse. The humidity is all ways above 75 and the temperature is 65 and night and a max of 85 in the day.
    Thanks
    Jeff

    Pygmy sundews. No dormancy per say. Just keep warm and wet and they should do well

    I don't have any experience with D. rosea, but I grow my D. scorpioides in 6" & 8" pots. Give them as much direct sun as possible. They can take mild frosts, but I don't advise temps below 40F. Give them lots of direct sun and they are very tolerant of low humidity in my experience.

    dont worry bout the humidity, it doesnt matter. though high humidity + no air circulation = dead Drosera in my experiance but in a greenhouse there should be no worries, most of my experiance in this revolves around fish tanks at 55gal and smaller. alot of my dews see humidity as low as 15% with no effects

    Perfectly normal. Those are gemmae, and it would probably be a good idea to knock them loose as occasionally they will stick to the demise of the plant. Each one should sprout into a new plant. Makes for much easier propogation than seed

    No, he's talking about the little nubby things at the top of your D. scorpioides. Those are the gemmae. A modified leave produced by pygmy drosera as a means of asexual reproduction. Much like a leave cutting. Your arrows are pointing at old, dead leaves.
