    Grow conditions for sundews?

    What do the following sundews like for growing conditions (humidity and temperature):

    D. Capensis
    D. Madasgariensis
    D. Adelea
    D. Binata

    Thanks

    What form of capensis? the red form prefers it more warm and moist and the rest do well with cool moist conditions but it really doesn't matter capensis is so easy to grow.
    binata is rather easy just like capensis
    adelae I owed all my success on growing them to my ten gallon, thought they had to have high humidity. well I moved them to my four foot and they didn't even lose their dew. higher humidity is good but it doesn't have to be insanely high adelae give it bright diffused light not full sun. I have never grown madagascariensis.

    I grow all those at room temperature (ranging from 60 - 75 degrees Fahrenheit) with room humidity (ranging from 50%-80%) and they grow wonderful. Just put them on a windowsill or under lights (or maybe even outside as long as you acclimate them and the temperatures don't go below about 50 degrees) and they will do fine!

    The species you listed are pretty easy to grow... if you grow indoors, do so under either FL or a windowsill. You can also use the water tray method for each of those... give the D. adelae enough light and it will turn a nice red for you.

    i throw all my dews outside for full sun in the minibog and they're still alive and gets dewy. my adelae is there too and it produces red leaves and red hairs but not too much dew, but definitely growing.

    They're all great window sill or under artificial lighting plants. D. binata can take the most amount of cold and the only one that has a true dormancy. D. capensis can take more cold than the other two but not lika binata and doesn't require a dormancy. I have my capensis and binatas outside for the spring through part of fall, but will keep the D. mad... and adelae at the window sill. some quick pics:
