Nice! I have a website in the works. I will certainly attempt to document my findings on this. I know fertilizing is recommended for both Nepenthes (both fish food and liquid orchid ferts) and Pings (powdered fish food) but I'm yet to really find anything on Drosera. I've found a few little snippets talking about the requirement of a food source for some Drosera seedlings to survive; that's been about it. Thanks for the information on your feeding schedule. I think I'll probably do mine every two weeks as well. That's pretty crazy that they can grow so fast they don't have time to make color. The way I have been feeding is with powdered blood worms and those baby shrimp I mentioned. I crush them up as fine as I can get them, then sprinkle over the dews. I believe it's a bit easier than having to place the betta pellets in each leaf. The powered form might be a little easier for the plant to deal with too. I'll be looking forward to your pictures . Yay for spring break!
Thanks . I was quite surprised to see so much movement. I'm with you, I thought it only happened when something alive was caught and the movement caused the leaves to curl over it. I fed my D. prolifera a few days ago when I fed the rest. I'm already seeing an increase in growth. It's putting up a flower stalk (which it was doing before I fed it) and two new leaves at once. This has always been a slow plant for me, two leaves at once are certainly something! Mine took quite awhile to flower for me. My mother plant died unfortunately. Luckily I was able to get a leaf cutting to strike, I guess it has just now matured enough to flower. When you do get flowers, remember to lay it down in some media. That's an easy way to get more plants .
That is very true! They are carnivores aren't they? I haven't really tried tuberous Drosera yet. My conditions are pretty warm, even in the winter. Maybe I'll give it a try next fall.
