    Drosera glabripes in South Africa

    Hi,

    i will continue my series with a species, that we only found in one location: Drosera glabripes. The only time we found this plant was in the Fernkloof Nature Reserve, where it grows in larger numbers directly beneath the way. For me, this is one of the most impressive and nicest species of southafrican Drosera. Here are the pictures!

    This one reminds me of D. madagascariensis in the way it grows, only so much more difficult to cultivate.

    Hi,

    i am growing this plant successfully for about 2 years now. The trick seems to be to keep it not too wet, almost dry. In fact, we only found plants on quite dry places (the same is true for D. esterhuyseniae). I am also using 20cm deep pots, which the plants seem to like as well! I still have not yet flowered it, but i hope i will soon have one!
