    D. intermedia, worry or not to worry?

    The last few days my D. intermedia has lost dew and is turring redisg on the older lower leaves. The new ones are green and dewey. Do D. intermedia leaves die in dormancy? What do you all think? also, chould I clip the flower stalk?

    It's going into dormancy. You can clip the flower stalk if you want.

    It looks a bit late for the plant to be going dormant but the plant looks good. Is the plant from florida stock? The winters outside in Phoenix may be a bit too warm for a temperate drosera. I'd put it in the fridge if I were you. If your plant is descended from a florida or other southeastern US coast population, you can give it a quick (until mid feb-early march) dormancy. If it is decended from a more northern population (new england, europe etc) it may need a longer dormancy.

    isnt d. intermedia almost supposed to be near or at waterlevel? just wondering I was considering trying to grow some from seed and thats what I thought I'd read. I noticed the tray you had yours in is a standard sized smaller tray...

    Slurm, it's from a grower in Fla. and has been on a 12 1/2 hr on 11 1/2 off light cycle.

    cmm889, I don't know what "standard sized smaller tray..." you're talking about? The older picture is the day after I got it and the second is from this afternoon. It is, and has always been since I got it, in a terrarium. I recently rebuilt the terrarium documented in this thread, but I don't have any trays.

    That last picture has that "clench-fist" look of temperate sundews in dormancy. I wouldn't worry. Come February there should be new growth.

    lately the winters in FL have been ranging from 18 - 90 degrees so I don't think that the Texas winter temps will be inadequate for your D. intermedia
