    Cool Pics of my sundews & an repot question

    I dont have a macro lens for my camera, sorry some are not the most fabulous, but here they are!

    D. capensis...they were once small little boogers... (01.06.09)


    ..and have grown to be a tad bigger and getting sticky! (02.18.09)




    D. scorpioides (bad spelling...Ill fix in a minute)


    D. [Lake Badgerup]


    D. adelae flowers....its now completely outgrown its container...its got sprouts coming out the drainage holes.


    (before it flowered)



    which brings me to my question....when I repot the adelae what should I do with all of the babies its put out of the drainage holes and such? Can I clip them off and root them?

    Thanks for looking and for help with my questions!

    Go ahead, clip them & repot. The D. adelae flowers shouldn't have produced seed.

    I've had babies coming out of my D. adelae little pot for so long they're nearly full-grown now... it's kind of cool.

    Anway, nice plants. Seedlings are always cool.

    Sounds good, when its done Ill see what i have to repot and root with and well see what happens! I dont believe there are seeds...the first half of the flowers are just closed I think.

    mmmhm, I so love my adelea! So far I think its my fav of the dews... lots of dew, pretty flowers that dont produce a ton of seed and it surprises me with baby plants on a regular basis (and it catches all of the gnats in the grow tank...always good)

    It's funny, mine are spreading like mad and sending plantlets up everywhere, yet I can't seem to get one to flower.
