    Looks like a nice salad with the dressing already included. Every time pictures of this plant pop up, I can't wait to take a look. Such an interesting looking sundew.

    A visitor down to my greenhouse brought me a pot of shizzy when he came. I really wasn't too sure what to do with it, since I have lost them before. So I put it on a shaded shelf, fairly close to the cooler and redirected a couple vents to blow in that direction. I wouldn't say it's quite HL conditions, but surely not as hot as it normally would be here in the desert. Here is what that pot looks like today (I really need to divide some of this out and take some cuttings. I want to start playing with feeding and such and see what happens with them!)

    Actually, they are normally notoriously slow growers (at least for me). However, the feeding (although a real pain) made a big difference in growth.

    6" across is pretty impressive. It's a shame you don't have a place to hide them from the heat.

    Cool temps & high humidity are what works for me. However, if those conditions change for a while, they aren't too forgiving...

    As you can see from Jefforever's plants, they like conditions in the Northwest US.

    Those look great Andrew - especially considering your exterior conditions are opposite what the plants like (hot/dry vs cool/humid). Getting them apart is probably a good idea. In addition to experimenting, if one decides to crash, it won't pull the others with it.

    Here are a few more threads for anyone interested in more info on the 'lettuces':
    - 2006 post w/ my original 'mother' plant & several comments on conditions
    - excellent 2 page thread - although it was better before Barry removed his pics.
    -------- schizzie pics that were originally in Barry's post
    - general post

    It's a great plant, we just need to get some more people growing it....

    I just brought this plant back up from its summer basement 'exile' as we seem to be past the really hot summer weather for the year. While it's not uncommon to see a hole in a leaf where condensation may have been dripping ... and it's quite common to have babies emerging from roots of older plants ... However, this is the 1st time I've had a little alien apparently cause a hole (2 o'clock from plant center) ...
    All the best,
