    Some Sundew Queries

    A warning in advance, there will probably be spelling mistakes.

    So, I got 3 sundews in the mail today, I got
    D.Capensis large
    D.Albino
    D.Angelica (I don't know how to spell it) The last one is native to Englad. What should I pot them in? they are in sphagnum moss at the moment. Out in the sunshine. Any recomendations? Or shall I leave them in the moss?

    all of them can take the standard a 1:1 peat/perlite mix.

    you can tweak for your own personal taste from there

    D. Anglica*

    Is D. albino a capensis? All will do well with the media suggested, open tray method, at a sunny window sill.

    Drosera 'Albino' is a registered cultivar of Drosera capensis. People need to learn how to use the scientific and cultivar names properly.

    Where's Joseph when you need him?

    Back on topic: I find pure long fiber sphagnum works out fine for most temperate Drosera such as Drosera anglica.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
