    I need your camera. NOW.

    Haha, excellent macros, especially the super-macro. I gotta love the D. echinoblastus, looks like a dewy cactus.

    Woderful shots!

    Keep in mind that most pygmy Drosera will rot if kept sopping wet in extreme hot temps...(a problem I have with them here in Fl., if not careful.) Some do just seem to go almost dormant when too wet/hot as well. The trick seems to be to keep the bottom half of the pot wet and the top a bit drier.......

    Happy Growing,

    Brian.

    An ~3 cm top layer of pure sand is often recommended for growing pygmy Drosera. This might help in your conditions.

    Thanks for the advice guys. Maybe when I get a new batch of gemmae this fall, I'll try that out.

    My sentiments exactly! Having mine outside ended up killing at least four varieties and the rest look dreadful. Glad I kept the newest gemmae sprouts inside.
