    I have grown some Admirabilis for about 4 to 5 years now. Quite easy!

    It's no problem if they look a little down, they always come back.

    I've heard many of the S. African sundews look ratty from time to time.

    Max, have you noticed their disproportionally long roots?

    Long roots? Doesn't that usually indicate a dry climate or at leat a dry season?

    Hmmm, I recall Pyro mentioning he's observed active and in-active growth phases in South African Drosera and it's best not to mess with them in the in-active phases (i.e. repot). Perhaps they phase in and out of semi-dormancy as many of the temperate and sub-tropical rosetted Drosera do.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I'll just keep them where they are and not do anything obtuse.

    Okay, that particular plant died. I don't really know why. The other one in the pot, on that I've had a for 4 years, looks okay. It has dew.
