    I am planning on growing some south african drosera, namely D.slackii and D. admirabillis. I have heard that these have been successful in warm conditions while others say that they can only live in highland conditions. My growing conditions in the winter are 70 f during the day and 60 f during the night. In the summer, temps are 80 f during the day and 70 f during the night. I grow under high intensity grow light tubes in household humidity. Will these do okay?

    I grow admirabilis and used to grow slackii in my sunroom year round and they do/did fine here. I recommend a thick layer of live sphag over LFS for both.
