    Capensis: that aliciae is 7.2cm (2.83'') across. Right now it flowers (stalk is 30cm ...11.8'' high). She really likes it in a south-oriented terrarium. BTW I always wondered why these little plants must grow such tall flower stalks (especially with pygmies it is so eye-catching). First I thought it is because other bog plants are much taller and it helps drosera to compete better in order to attract pollinators. But recently I read/heard somewhere that it is actually so they dont eat their pollinators. Dont know what to believe now. Maybe both:-) Anyways i found it amazing I mean how nature can come with the most brilliant yet the simplest solution to everything:-)

    2 Mr. Truncata: Thanx.......I got all these 10 pygmies from an acquaintance who owns a huge carni green house. he sells them real cheap and fresh. Actually the pictures posted are of pygmies second day after he sent them to me from Bratislava. They all (10 species...40 plants) cost around $25.00 And they all will produce a new gemmae culture in the winter hopefully!

    That's pretty big. I was also surprised at how tall mine was, but I killed it :/.
