    August Drosera Pics

    So here's my current growing setup. I recently moved my trays 90 degrees counterclockwise, which gives me more "room".




    A very happy Adelae pot. Finally got this growing.



    I repotted my D. Madagascariensis "Botswana". It had an Utricularia and/or very thick moss inside the first few inches of soil, which was causing it to grow pretty slowly, I'm hoping removing it will help.



    Same thing with my D. Multi. "Extrema". You'll note the large amount of water in the tray, by tomorrow that will be mostly gone. 100% pure peat moss, btw, might mix in some perlite, not sure. He's not growing very well.



    This is the Utric that came out of it. I have been told it's U. bisquamata:



    When I moved the Multi Extrema, I damaged a leaf, so:



    Water prop, should work fine. I'll know in 2 months or so.

    I'm worried about them (there are two of them, the one you can see is bigger and a camera hog), to be honest. It was drooping a bit. It had a good flower stalk, I took the dried up seed pods and rolled them apart into my prop chamber, hopefully they selfed.

    I had D. mad... flower once. The pods were seedless. Maybe that was just my bad luck.
