    Strongest Sundews?

    What varieties of sundews can withstand the most amount of heat in dry, arid, high desert climates. What I mean is what sundews are strong enough to grow alongside VFTs and Sarrs in a mini bog outside for 8+ hours under a summer southern california sun

    Yeah I read all the time about how hardy this plant is. The tropical plant returning from freezes and stuff like that

    Winter growing Drosera (tuberous, some pygmy and some South African) will survive hot dry summers by going dormant to tubers or thick roots.

    Some of the Woolly sundews will tolerate high temperatures but they want high humidity.

    Just leave it there. The season change isn't dramatic. The plant can adjust itself.
