    The dew that is D. schizandra

    I've had it about a month now I guess...
    Not the caliber of most I've seen here, but give her time


    knock on wood, so far she seems happy

    Soooo how do you grow yours?

    She's a hard drosera to please. She looks healthy though, so good luck.

    Not bad. I would get one myself, but I hear they need hyper-humidity to thrive.

    I grow mine in San Jose, where humidity often hovers at or below the 50% mark. I grow it in my greenhouse in deep shade and seems to do just fine.

    Very nice Av! I'm jealous
    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?

    Nice job! Mine doesn't have as much dew. It's weird in that sundews, characteristically require decent lighting to display dew, and yet, this species is suppose to have subdued lighting. Mine pales in comparison:

    People around here in the LACPS grow them in large brandy snifters or globe fishbowls for the humidity. The examples I've seen at the meetings look great.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Seems like HL/UHL with lower light levels are the common recommendations... The fish bowl/brandy snifter idea has been mentioned by others as well.

    I think I'm giving mine more light then most, but so far it seems OK... growth rate is a new leaf per week at the moment. That seems to be on the fast side from what I gather. Hopefully it will continue at that pace. It is about 150% of its original size in the months time.

    Currently, mine is 65ish F/80ish+ RH/24" from lights with Live sphag and trich
