    Can Drosera Adelae be grown on a windowsill?

    I'm thinking about buying a Drosera Adelae for my windowsill. However, I read that they need high humidity.

    My windowsill gets about 2-3 hours of filtered sun and the rest of the time is bright shade. My cephalotus and Pinguicula Caerulea are doing really good on it.


    Would Drosera Adelae make a nice addition for my windowsill?

    It probably can. And it actually doesn't really need high humidity from what I've heard. I've never grown it before, so I can't really say, but I'm sure it can.

    I would say that adelae can. I have one on a windowsill right now. After about week after I got it, it started to put out much larger globs of dew. The thing about high humidity is a myth. The humidity was often in the 40's on my windowsill.

    yessir

    it will do just great on a south facing windowsill.
    i have to say that mine did very poorly until I covered the pot w/ a plastic dome to increase humidity.
    But note that in the winter here, humidity is slim to none, so in different conditions you probably wouldn't need the dome.

    That's a very nice D. adelae, Jimscott!

    I've never had much luck with mine on the windowsill - or in a terrarium. They'd just dry out and die all of the sudden. Then again, I did get them from a Lowe's death cube...

    I'd go for it! In fact, I'm gunna try some more dews on my windowsill soon.

    i have some growing in a windowsill, nice plants jimscott, my plants are smaller and seem to be growing fine, they grow right next to my mex pings. although they don't multiply as fast as people say, maybe its just my conditions i got like 1 offset since ive had them (got them early to mid summer june-july, i think)

    Dustin, once it gets the roots everywhere you'll see them popping up a LOT more often, mine basically made hordes of roots for several months then started making plants all over the place once the network was to the satisfaction of the plant

    Easy windowsill grower, I have mine in a north window and it grows just great!!
