    Hi guy's a little advice please...

    As some of you may know I killed my 1st sundew many years back...

    I came accoss these plant's listed at the garden center... I am not sure if they of the same type or what I have done is correct.

    Firstly I don't know the exact name of these... or if there both the same. I placed these with my VFT's and they have gone more red is that a problem? Next is that I have a large live spag tray that I intended to have a varity of carns in... Can I add these will they be ok in that type of container..





    Many thanks Noddy

    both look like alicae to me. the red coloration is pretty nice--but be careful, if they start turning brown, it could be a sign that the leaves are getting burned. keep a watch out for the new leaves, they should produce dew. dont expect the older leaves to produce any though---CPs usually get a brutal beating hanging out in the nursery for prolonged periods of time.

    The red "color" can also be a fungus that also causes these plants to lose their dew.

    It appears to be a South African. My experience with semi-tropicals/tropicals is that they lose their tentacles like that when the temperatures are too cool for them.

    Looks like a hamiltonii to me - though the leaves are longer than any hamiltonii I've seen. What do the flowers look like?

    Look sunburnt to me, I wouldn't repot right now as they are in quite a bit of shock. Just give them a few weeks to adjust to the new conditions. Keep them moist but not in much water right now, as the shock from going to much more sunlight and a new environment could cause them to rot if kept too moist, I've learnt that the hard way. Good luck!
