    Drosera venusta in bloom




    (above) Scape is about 14.5 inches from top of pot when this was taken (01 AUG 2007).




    Three photos above 05 AUG 2007


    Four days later (09 AUG 2007) - Scape measured at 17 inches from top of pot. Flower was fully open when I started to setup the camera. By the time this shot was taken, it had closed to this point. By the time I returned the plant to its growing spot the flower was closed... 1/2 hour probably.

    It's growing on an east facing windowsill with 2-4 hours of direct sun in the morning.

    You can't see it from the picture but the bottom layers of leaves are covered with fungus gnats. I pressed it into fungus gnat control in my seedling tray for a few weeks. After that there was a noticable growth spurt leading up to the flower scapes.
