    I guess this is the article in question - however it appears to be incomplete on the website:

    Never had any problems with street lights or any lights at night. Also they can produce gemmae with good hours of light and even in the summer. The temps seem to be a important factor but not the only one since i did try an experiment last summer and give them some cold days ...nothing happend. Maybe the period was to short.
    Best regards,

    Re: Streetlights

    Well, you never know. All my pots of pygmies except one are on the floor of my balcony. The one exception is a pot of Drosera scorpioides which is on a greenhouse bench.

    Over a shared stairway is a light that is on all night for safety reasons. The only pot of pygmies that is exposed to light from this source is the one on the bench, the others being shaded at night either by my Sarracenia or a wall. The bench top pot is the only one not producing gemmae. I'll move it and see what happens.

    Well the interupted dark period inhibiting gemmae is a low sample statistic, but I've heard it from other growers as well, and this observation re: Drosera scoprioides adds yet another datum. I can also add that all of my species/hybrids produced abundant gemmae providing the plants were robust. Another grower told me their plants made gemmae directly below a mercury vapor lamp at her entranceway so go figure,lol.

    Sorry about the truncated article, not much help there! Onw wonders where the other bit went...probably next to 200 right hand socks, 5,999 guitar picks and my good looks and intellect.....

    To add a few more data points among the shaded pots are a couple of Drosera scorpioides pots started one month after the unshaded pot from the same batch of gemmae.

    FWIW Joseph's article on Drosera falconeri is truncated also. I guess I'll have to contact the webmaster or editor.

    I have my scorpioides in 6" pots. I water till it runs through and fills the tray. I water again when the tray is dry. All the others are in 4" pots, but get watered the same.

    I'm guessing that the drying out encourages the root development?

    Quick question -- If my Pygmys are flowering, does that mean they think it's the wrong season to make gemmae?
