    Question How do you grow Drosera paradoxa

    Does anyone know how to grow Drosera Paradoxa. They are so beautiful and I want one. I have read the basic culture of it, so I want personal experiences. Thanks for the help.

    waterlogged and hot. think 90s. if it drops below 70F expect it to go dormant.
    for dormancy, the plant will shrink into a tiny compact ball--do not water at this time (leave quarter inch of water in the tray--wait for it to evaporate, wait a day or two before refilling.) basically you want to keep the soil close to bone dry. when the plant starts to grow again, increase the watering frequency and when it is fully out of dormancy you may go back to it being waterlogged.

    oh and really strong lighting. i have mine in a 2.5 gallon terra, along with other petiolaris dews, under a 65W power compact fluorescent tube (used for fish tanks)

    have fun.
