    Humpf...

    The one I'm having trouble with is D. spatulata 'Frasier Island'.

    Since I bought it, the three little plantlets are dewless and kinda brown on the edges.

    And they sit right next to adelae, aliciae and capensis which are all healthy and full of dew.

    Weird thing is that it's throwing up a couple flower stalks.

    I think a re-potting is in order for Mr. Frasier. Some fresh soil might do him some good.

    D. capensis is near unkillable. I can't grow D. adelae outdoors. It needs humidity and can't take much sun.

    I'd advise that you learn to grow your Drosera from seed vs buying plants which were grown in conditions different from those you have. Plants grown from seed always seem healthier and happier since the weak die off and the rest are preadapted to your own conditions. The added plus is that you get many plants with which to experiment, trade and share. It's also cool to be a part of the whole process, sort of like seeing a movie from the start instead of halfway through. Seed is often available for far less money and the shipping is just a stamped envelope. I wrote out the whole process awhile back and I think it's still around in the article section.

    I killed it a long time ago but my venusta has long roots but will die,
    does anyone have a suggested course of action? Do I put when the crown dies cut up the roots then lay under a small amount of peat?
    It needs to die down then come out again,I guess coming from hawaii was too much for it

    Once I got beyond what Lowes & Home Depot were selling, I was scarfing up the Trading Post offerings, most of which were pigmy sundew gemmae and various seeds. Maybe not all were successes but many were and some of the those germinated / sprouted seeds and gemmae produced flowers and gemmae themselves. Those plants indeed were stronger and more acclimated than straight up plants that came from others.
