    Drosera care sheet

    Does anyone know where I can find a nice simple clean caresheet for Drosera? I've had some interest in my plants lately; first from my mom, then from someone at work. I have a number of Adelae that are fantastically healthy, so I thought I would indoctrinate them into the religion of CP-love.

    I'm looking for something to give them with the plants that covers just the basics and won't make them groan when they look at the length of it. I figure they can always find out more details online if they want. Is there something good out there, or am I out of luck? The best I found was at the Sar NW site, but it went into zones and natural range and all that, and that simply isn't relevant to a brand new grower. I just really don't want them to feel overwhelmed. Besides, when you give someone something too long they tend to not read any of it, and I'd rather them know about just how to water, touch, and fertilize than not know anything at all.

    I did a search here but only found a VFT caresheet. If I missed a good post on this I apologize and would appreciate a link.

    Thanks.

    Unlike VFTs Drosera is a large genus with many species and a wide range of habitats so care depends on the species and origin location. Thus there are many "care sheets". Here's a couple of good starts:

    The ICPS guide gives growing instructions as well as germination guides.

    Yeah, it would take an extensive caresheet to cover the genus. But if you can get hold of a copy of Savage Garden (Ebay, library,...) that's a great guide.
