    I didn't see a picture but if the plant was a typical Lowes (cube of death) purchase, it is a D. adelae, and an etiolated one at that. Does its somewhat resemble these D. adelae plantlets?




    Or the plant way to the left (D. adelae)? Or the plant way to the right (D. capensis) *spellcheck*

    Well, like all Drosera the plant is adaptable. In habitat, this is a more "woodland" species, unlike many of the Australian species which grow in much harsher conditions. But it is adaptable, has to be considering what the climate is like in Oz! I've grown the plant in about 40% humidity and in full sun but the process of acclimation needs to be SLOW, especially if it is a greenhouse produced unit as this appears to be. So go for wet, cool and bright and as the plant gets a deeper "suntan" you can give it more direct light.

    Growing in a terrarium under lights can produce some real monster sized plants, but they will have less color. Keep it going long enough and you'll have endless plants from the roots where they form, and then you can experiment and see which culture is better for you.

    Yeah so basically they want sun in the morning and then dark and cool cause they're from Queensland.

    Just put it in a sunny window and give it some distilled water. Then wait.

    My D. adelae(s) get bright filtered west window light and grow like gangbusters! One is sending up a flower spike now as well. They are experts at catching fungus gnats!

    Laura O'Neal brought this tray of D. adelae to the LACPS meeting. It started out as one bigger plant and a few pups. She grows them under lights:
