    Honestly, my experience with Drosera adelae has been an easy one. Quite simply, I feel it is by far the easiest plant I have to grow... even easier than Drosera capensis. They grow like a weed for me and I now have about 8 of them. Just keep it in a tray of water and give it decent light. I cannot relate to windowsill growing, as all of my plants grow under 6 T12 bulbs.

    Anyway, good luck!

    Thanks Baylor It seems to be happy to an extent in the window...its grown quite a bit since I got it, new leaves all the time and the large one is sending up flowers. *shrugs* Just no dew. I watered it this morning, and found a bigger water cup for it to sit in, hopefully here in a bit it will start to be the beautiful dewy plant I picked up!!

    I've always treated D. adelae and P. primuliflora the same way - water when nearly empty and not as concerned about lighting. They both seem to need deeper and wider environs. I've also had the full spectrum of success and failure with them both.
