    Drosera graomogolensis

    Hi!

    I recently swapped some drosera graomogolensis. I potted it into peat/silica sand (80/20) mix, well rinsed with distilled water. I placed it inside of a plastic container with perforated top. It gets plenty of light and the temperatures are 22(day) to 18(might). The soil is topped with sphagnum moss and the pot stands in water. The humidity is over 60%. The plant was doing fine for few days and then the new leaves stopped unfurling completely and the tips turned black. Here is what it looks like now:


    Can anyone help?

    Are those the temperatures inside the box? Methinks you probably cooked it.

    Mine is just sitting on a west facing window-sill until the night temperatures warm up. I found out the hard way it doesn't like temperatures below 42F (6C). This has to be the fastest growing Drosera I have in my collection.

    I have it in a long fibre sphagnum/perlite mix (30/70) with a topping of live Sphagnum moss. I replaced the green Sphagnum with a red Sphagnum between photos. All my special plants get a red Sphagnum topping.

    Compare the photo taken today with the one taken 11 Nov. 2008
    (observe the interesting helical twist at the ends of some of the leaves)

    NaN: No way i cooked it. The temperatures are measured with digital thermocouple inside of the tank. First I thought maybe the humidity was too low but that is not a case either. Do you think I should pot it into live sphagnum instead of peaty mix?
    Yours looks very healthy:-) Congrats!

    Then why is it so darn rare and expensive?

    Nice looking plants by the way.

    Same here. I'd be interested in obtaining a specimen.

    Beats me. I've only had it 4-5 months. They're pretty tough to propagate from what I hear. And maybe they have a tendency to crash suddenly like Cephalotus.

    The label should give you a clue. Starting last year I've been putting from who/where and the month and year that I got the plant(s).

    Sorry, there were stipulations that went along with ownership so trades are not on the table. I may try some root cuttings later.
