    D. 'Marston Dragon' question(s)

    I am trying to find out whether Drosera 'Marston Dragon' goes dormant or not, i've searched the forums but couldn't find much, and when i google i'm finding mismatching info. Btw, are they easy plants to grow?

    Well D. binata can go dormant but it is "if",
    like mine went dormant on my windowsill so I put them in my tank then they came back quickly They will stop growing in cooler low light conditions.
    If you wish to keep them growing just some good light and warmth
    Oh D. binata are very easy to grow right along with D. capensis, the reason you don't see them as much as D. capensis is they do not produce seed(usually) unless cross pollinated with a different form

    All I know is that they don't have the same cold tolerance that a striaght up D. binata does. Mine stays on a cool window sill for the winter

    It does not. According to THE book, as well as a plant i own. My plant slows down in winter, but still keeps on growing...

    It is pretty easy to grow, but not as easily propogated from leaf cuttings as a plain old D. binata.
