    I'm going to try and grow one of those when I have my own greenhouse and I'm more experienced.

    dont need a GH for them, they like it dry. just cant repot them, they cannot have ANY root disturbance, you move the roots, and they die.

    Well, everyone says Drosophylum is a very difficult plant. To my knowledge, Heliamphora is the most difficult carnivorous plant there is, but Drosophylum is up there.

    Well Drosophyllum cant take any root disturbance, thats why. but if you put it into 8" terracotta pot with sand/vermiculite/perlite i believe and slack pot it into a larger 12" or so pot with LFS, it should be fine. just dont unpot the plant or disturb its roots. keep it somewhat dry, it doesnt like being wet, and it hates getting the stem soaked, so be careful
