    You have a very impressive drosera collection!

    What drosera is that to the right of your H. minors? They kind of look like d. schizandra but I am not sure.

    Also, do you have any tips for falconeri cultivation? Especially just before dormancy, during dormancy, and when the plant is coming out of dormancy?

    Hi there!
    Thanx for nice comments~!

    @FRED: drosera anglica I grow here in Slovakia outdoors all year round (it is a native species). I observe that they grow the same in humidity dome and outside. After repotting or deflasking it is better to keep them in higher air-humidity environment. D. anglica grows the best in semi-shade with few hours of direct sunlight (preferably morning or evening sun). She does not take air/substrate overheating very well. When I had the plants in hot spot receiving 8 hours of direct sunlight per day, the plants went to summer dormancy.

    @DEVON: south american sundews are not extremely sensitive to heat once their root system is well established/stabilized and they receive higher air moisture levels (40% hot day to 80% cool morning). In the summer heat the night temp drop is only about 5C in my conditions. I grow them in the apartment right next to the open balcony door (on the floor the ai is cooler) with no access of direct sun (T5 lights).

    @SILENCEIS GOOD:No problems with mold in the TC dumping site:-) I dump there species I feel sorry to trhow away but dont want to spend valuable space on them (I dont have a GH). When these sundews are deflasked, the medium is over 4 months old and almost all the sugar is spent by plants. A medium just with salts, no sugar, is not very attractive for mold.

    @DASHMAN: drosera falconeri enters the dormancy quite rapidly in comparison with other lasiocephala sundews. In addition to that, it does not form dormant bud but dies completely to the roots and disappears from the surface. At this stage I learnt that it is not a very good idea to let the substrate to go bone-dry, especially for smaller pots and low air humidity. Instead, I rather keep the substrate dry on the surface but with traces of moisture down below and I keep the air humidity high. This combination ensures the survival during long dormancy period (`4-6months). When new leaves emerge, I water with tray method. Feeding helps to develop happier plant

    The small sundew babies next to the H.minor are very young adelaes:-)
