    Update!

    I'm still keeping the one on the left very wet sitting in water the majority of the time (except when I forget)

    Travis - More or less, disturbing the roots of Drosophyllum will kill the plants, its been proven its possible to transplant them but otherwise, any disturbance of the roots generally like i said, kills the plants.
    Leaf cuttings dont work AFIK, the only way to propagate this species is through seed...

    For what it's worth, I've found the claims of root sensitivity to be a bit overblown. Due to an unfortunate set of circumstances, while transporting a young Drosophyllum the pot(s) spilled, throwing the plant and media everywhere. It was a ragged, sad sight. But If I can pull in to a gas station, shove everything back in to the pots and have everything be completely fine after having the stuff spilled out and rolling on my car floor for a couple of miles...

    But that's just one man's experience.

    Andrew,

    What is the humidity and temperature like in your greenhouse? I am afraid of killing another two seedlings which just germinated today.

    TIA!

    Cindy, I'm sorry I didn't see your post... I hope they're still going for you! These are on the south east corner of my greenhouse so get really strong warm sun and the cooler blows right past them. So I would say the day temps are in the mid to high 90s and humidity hovers around the 40-60% range most of the time. BUT when the fogger runs, it fogs right on top of them...
    I will also note, when they were younger, I had them on the second shelf.. so the light wasn't as strong, did it matter? I don't know.
