    Aside from D. paradoxa.......

    .... which other Petiolaris Complex will tolerate temps as low as the 80's and 90's? I have a fishtank and a submercible heater, and a fluorescent light set up with lowland Neps, B. liniflora, and a D. lanata. I just got hold of a piece of styrofoam that I will cut to size and contour of plastic plant pots so that they will float on the water. Should the Petiolaris plant pots be submerged in the water at all and by how much or should the bottom of the pot be at the surface or slightly above the surface and by how much? Would D. ordensis be okay in this temperature? What other Australian sundews would benefit in this glorified terrarium setup?

    I grow Lanata, Paradoxa, Petiolaris, Dilatato petiolaris, Aff. Ordenensis, Falconeri, and a couple other things always under 80 - 90 degrees.

    I just don't know which is which, so they're not listed on my growlist.

    Once upon a time there was a blurb in CPN about growing petiolaris complex floating in heated water. Might want to check the archives if you have the time.

    My tanks are heated to about the range you describe. However, I don't float the plants as I like to let the water level flux for them. Plus, I have plants go dormant under my conditions and a floating plant would rot out in a minute if it were to go dormant.

    I HATE their haphazard dormancy! Remember when I sent them to you because I thought they were going to kick the bucket? I would like to try again in college some time. It's much easier to heat than it is to cool. Someone should try growing something disposable like D. paradoxa floating in water; that sounds very interesting.

    As for myself? To the ARCHIVES archives archives archives.... I couldn't find it via the public search and going through each back issue on the member's site would take forever. I don't think you can search them anyway. And I don't actually know the difference between the public search and the member's area.... dun dun duuuuun.


    Whatever happened to Chuck? Nice guy! Hope he's alright.

    I recall the ones you sent me. Under my conditions they all turned around

    I know I have the CPN in question at home, I'll try to get around to looking through them tonight but my usual routine these days it to pull the computer out and continue writing and once I start I tend to lose track of time....

    I think Chuck may be gone from the game. Rumor is his eBay dealings went really really bad and no one has heard from him since then...

    How about suspended just above the water line so that the evaporation creates a nice, humid environment? The styro attempt failed. It was too flimsy.

    Why not try my method? Get a bit of light diffuser and elevate it by placing pots underneath it. The just fill with enough water so the plants are only standing in about 2-4cm..
