    Drosera - Dialup Warning

    Here are some of my Drosera that I thought are looking halfway decent. Enjoy.

    I received these as a mini D. spatulata from Borneo, they stay extremely small


    D. cuneifolia


    D. trinervia - shouldn't these be dormant?


    D. graomogolensis


    D. madagascariensis - about time to cut them off again, they are growing into everything


    D. oblanceolata


    D. capillaris


    D. montana var. tomentosa


    D. auriculata Tasmania - Shouldn't these be dormant? Growing outside in the shade in 100F
    (first year from seed, they were supposed to be stratifying)
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Crissytal-
    Incredibly well-grown sundews (and very nice photography too!). I need to look up some of those species.....they look worthy of a place in the collection. BTW, any secrets of success for growing the South American sundews in particular that you can pass on? Thank you very much for sharing! -Chris

    Chris, Thank you! I'm still working on the photography. It's frustrating that I can't seem to do better (though I'm lazy and just point and click which is probably why LOL), at least they are turning out better then with my old camera. As far as South American dews go, try to keep them a bit cooler. My temperatures hover in the mid 70's during the summer time. Cooler would be better, but that's the best I can do without a basement. I have found that D. graminifolia and D. graomogolensis grow best in live Sphagnum. D. montana var. tomentosa grows in both peat mixes and live Sphagnum; it doesn't seem picky. I keep their feet wet all the time. Humidity varies depending on where I have them growing. It doesn't seem to be an issue except maybe with the D. graminifolia. If the humidity drops too quick, they drop their dew. It always comes back with an increase of humidity though. I hope this is helpful.
