    Have you ever read...

    In books and magazines when sundews grew natrually in your area? Well, im trying to bring this back. I just made cuttings, and theyrerooting. I am going to put one on a log covered with moss, where it gets enough light and everything. If it works, I'm adding more in the backyard. I'll send pics later.

    They don't grow on logs or other mediums similar to that

    they grow in nutrient deficent wetlands and bogs, not logs/soils

    Sorry to say but Ivan Snyder showed us photos of Drosera growing on logs when he gave a presentation at the April LACPS meeting.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Actually, they can grow on mossy logs.

    Just like epiphytic species don't grow ON a tree so much as debris in the "nooks and crannies" of a tree, Drosera (and others) don't grow ON a log so much as moss (which is on a log).

    EDIT: Ninja'd again.

    Not to mention the moss on those logs will probably kill them.
    the moss that the drosera usually grow on, as you know, is sphagnum, if its anything, its likely to kill the plant. and depending on the plant, for instance, Capensis, most will die if they do by chance live on that log, come winter time since Capensis doesnt go dorment, its roots will freeze and the plant would die. i would try to keep the introduction of species to a minimum as something like capensis could cause some issues xDDDD darn weeds....

    Its a temperate one... im not sure if its intermedia or spatula, but it DOES go dormant in my house, and the moss is spagnuhm, and it might not be TOO much of a weed but i'd use the seeds for myself, and put a few more up.
