    I was given 2 mature drosera villosa plants. What conditions do these like? I heard that they like high humidity and cool conditions. I am setting up a classic terrerium to grow mostly subtropical rosetted sundews. These don't need that much humidity, so the lid will only cover about half of the tank. They will be growing about 6-8 inches away from the cool white grow tubes. Night temps go up to 70 in the summer, so I'm not sure these will do that well.

    Oops, it turns out that they were mislabeled. They are really D. ascendens.

    I grow mine in a cold greenhouse (unheated), and it semms to appreciate!

    the temperatures are 10C night / 18C day, hygro +- 60%.

    It's the fist winter I grow it, so I'm not sure if the way I grow it is the right one.

    regards, Romain
