    Notice in the Drosera, there's much less red pigmentation, probably due to some straight weeks of rain and almost no sun.

    Drosera capensis






    Drosera auriculata






    Updates soon

    holy COW thats a lot of sundews. i want to do something like that too, only with P. esseriana.
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    Nice seedlings and nice photos.

    If you don't start thinning and transplanting, you will soon lose lots of little plants.

    They will prove survival of the fittest. Some will receive enough resources, most will not. Space, light, nutrients, etc. are all critical for survival. Usually those that grow larger first, continue to grow larger faster, the "runts" will be left behind, and usually die from lack of resources. Sometimes, after the "runts" have been shaded too much by their larger sisters, they will be attacked by adventitious pathogens (called damping-off), and this can threaten the entire group, even the larger sister plants.

    Neat. They look like moss, they are so dense. Too dense actually. They need to be thinned. Spacing makes them grow bigger faster. As they are now they will stunt each other in competition. Think vegetables. The more space, the bigger and fuller the plant. 1 thinned, well-grown plant is worth 20 crowded, weak plants. When crowded, each plant will not have a full crown- think of trees in a forest compared to trees in the open. DO you want plants like in a forest, thin and tall, or ones in the open, wide and lush?

    Listen to Joseph Clemens, he knows what he is talking about.
    that makes no logic
