    Pics of drosera

    http://s216.photobucket.com/albums/c...ion%209i18i10/

    Basically the same post from the ICPS boards, but not everyone is over there.

    Dad wanted to be a photographer again so he took some pics of my plants.

    D. falconeri is grown in the same conditions as my d. adelae, venusta, burmanii, aliciae, spathulata, etc.

    D. regia was just repotted 3 weeks or so ago. Got really big; new leaves are about 25% larger.

    D. roseana was recently purchased, but appreciates fruit flies. :

    D. intermedia "Cuba" is a favorite of mine. It doesn't shout out like other sundews, and is very pretty by itself.

    D. capensis... i found it's container, a coffee people cup, a few years ago at one of their (now shut down, except for PDX airport) shops. It was a velvet hammer shake.

    Drosophila sp. are wingless, and bred by me.

    Other plants are still recovering from my pruning and cleaning session in the summer.

    Note that the pics might be a little large for some with older computers; they may exceed the limits, so i just added a link, for the sake of simplicity.

    your falconeri looks small. almost too small. what are the temps of its growing conditions? your plant might be heading towards dormancy. if this is the case, you're going to have to let the pot completely dry out and water it sparingly (.25 inches of water in the tray) about every week.

    no. its perfectly fine. it's internal clock has been messed up for quite some time now; most of the plant is "buried" beneath the soil, so it looks rather "small". I haven't had a more vigorous woolly drosera than this species. (temps = 80+ degrees)

    Yes! I've been waiting for a long time! The roseana are amazing! Regia looks great, too.
    The Falconeri look healthy to me- just a bit crowded now that there are 3 or 4 plants right next to each other. But what are those 2 things on the largest plant's leaves?
    As for the D. intermedia 'Cuba', it looks a lot like D. capillaris to me, but I can't be for sure.

    I think they all look wonderful. Anybody who can keep regia and falconeri going is doing a great job!

    Actually, i haven't grown the clump of roseana for much longer than a week. But it has increased dew production, and appears to be responding very well to high light. (4ft t8 fixtures, no less than 2 inches from the plants)

    As for the objects on the falconeri, i feed it fruit flies. It has responded with much vigor. I would certainly recommend keeping a small culture of wingless drosophila if you keep drosera; they are incredibly stupid and cannot escape even from weak seedling runts.

    And i am almost certain that the D. intermedia "cuba" is not capillaris. The original grower was quite reputable. Now I'm just waiting for seed.
    Doubt never hurts though.

    @Cplantaholic
    You appear to be very knowledgeable on propagation. I will be a frequent visitor to your site, fyi. Beautiful plants.
    *edit x 2*
    I find that feeding d. peltata is quite certainly the only way to get it to grow, along with other, more specialist sundews, eg. burmanii, pygmies, etc. Just wanted to get that out there.

    I really need to update the info on the site- i even have a few videos now that have been sitting in the hard drive memory banks for a while now...but hopefully it can help you a bit.

    Your edit x2 is very true. D. indica fits in there as well.

    kinda forgot I have pics of D. capillaris (lol), which might help too. Flowers and seed are the best id'ers though.

    not an exact match, of course, but here's a form from Polk County for comparison:
