    Drosera adelae pictures

    I know that this is supposed to be one of the easiest plants to grow, but it was my first Drosera and I still like it quite a bit. I divided it about 3 weeks ago and it has already filled its pot and is trying to escape from the drainage slits on the side.

    Awesome plant if grown alone lol, otherwise it chokes everything that grows with it

    Well, my D. adelae is going nuts. I am growing it using the tray method in a mini greenhouse under T5 lights. It has roots growing out of the bottom of the pot into the water. The roots have started new plants in the water. This pot was full in Sept so I divided it and sent half of it to my brother. Now it has filled the pot again and then some. I think it is happy so I will just let it go for now.

    I have killed 2 of these plants, am I missing a trick? I put them next to the Cape Sundews and water them regularly (with Distilled water). Basically I treat them the same way as my other plants, and they stop making dew and slowly die on me -- and don't even try to make new plants.

    The first one I killed cause I left it in the Lowes Deathcube (ah, youth), the second one just didn't survive the move to the new apartment.

    Could I be sunburning them to death? Should I aim for less light?


    Also, how do they spread? By just making new grow points? By runners? Magic Carnivorous Pixie Dust?

    They perfer lower light than most sundews. Diffused light is good, but you can adjust them slowly to more light. They do spread by runners.
