    Nice D. regia Pyro. I've tried growing this plant in a variety of scenarios, from terrariums to a windowsill. I've achieved a good deal of success with those attempts, so now I'm trying to grow one outside. We'll see how it acclimates...

    In fact, I have five regia seeds that I'm trying to sprout now, so I can kill them later on.........

    Isn't that odd how regia's dead leaves look all burned up just like a VFT's??

    Wonder why these two plants dead leaves turn so black while your average houseplant's leaves usually turn yellow or brown when dying or dead?
    I think it's because they are closly related. If you were to do some horrid experiment by crosing a Drosera with a VFT, Regia would be the one to do it with...

    I've heard that you can sometimes get seedlings to sprout, but they never last long...

    Man that is one mean looking sundew... regia and filiformis both remind me of a monster... would not want to be a fly.

    For those of you who have been successful in growing this, is there any secret to it? I know they like cool nights.

    Hey Baylor,

    I find they grow best under highland conditions. They also seem to appreciate a loose media. And I usually have them on a tray that I allow to stand dry a day or two before adding water again. Other than that I just leave mine alone and they grow

    No problem. Unfortunately I am totally out of spares at the moment or I'd be happy to send one off to you. Odds are I can pick up a few more in the not too distant future, I'll try and remember to contact you if I do.


    Cheers

    Thanks Pyro, I appreciate it. As a side note, how cold does it get at night where you are? I keep hearing they like temperatures around 65 at night.
