    This is also labeled D. pygmaea... but it isn't:

    It;s always fairly impossible for me to ID the pygmys without flower shots, but this looks good for D. pygmae. This species was highly sensitive to wet during the dormant stage in my collection so I would suggest that you aim for surface dryness if the plant is indeed going dormant while retaining moisture deeper in the root ball. I can;t determine if this is going dormant or making gemmae but if making gemmae keep it on the wet side. I also remember that Drosera roseana was noted for occasionally making gemmae out of season, sometimes during the longest days of summer.

    Thanks for all the input. I will try to get the tripod and larger camera out later this week to get a good close up.

    Well, it almost looks like gemmae, but you should try teasing one with a toothpick. If it appears to be a dormant leaf, then you'll know for sure...
    Also, the way your leaves are folding up makes me think you have root rot, or whatever was wrong with my D. nitidula x pulchella this spring. Here's a pic of mine when a few plants out of the bunch had problems:

    I have since repotted them into a large container, increased the photoperiod, and all but 1 made it. They look better than ever now. It was just odd that only 2 plants were affected. That is why I think you have a similar situation, as just one of your plants seem to be curling up.

    Thanks for the tip. I will let the tray go dry before refilling now.

    Sounds good. Just so you know in advance, it may take a while to snap out of it. I have had some success using perlite with a few pygmies, but overall, I've found that silica sand really prevents those symptoms from showing up. Just keep in mind that many people have great success with perlite. In my growing conditions, I have never had much luck with it... Not sure how tall your pot is, but in my experience, the taller, the better, regardless of what mix I use. The container I transplanted my once "rotting" D. nitidula x pulchella into is over 9 inches tall. Just something to keep in mind for future gemmae...
