    1 year and a couple of months latter I thought I should update this thread with what happened to my Drosera regia seedlings. I started with 21 seedlings now there are two that survived. They both quite healthy 1 is much bigger than the other. They dont like it too wet and really respond when they catch insects any here is a couple of pics of the biggest plant. considering how sensitive this soecies is Im quite happy to have two survive.

    Does seed from this clone share the same characteristics?
    Yes NaN, I've definitely found the 'Big Easy' much easier to grow... but I have gotten leaves around 18" long before: Big-Easy

    Plants looking good Kinabalufan! They do respond well to being fed!

    I had tons of these when I was working at a lab in PA. I used them exactly as you described. Here are some early (bad) photos, from ~2004:

    Well it turns out D. regia will form winter hibernacula if the winters are cold enough. John Brittnacher posted a photo or two either on the ICPS board or website. I'm trying to track them down.

    I've shipped several to Lois as part of trades. I'll have to check.... I might have more in the garage, if you're interested in them.
