    Hey Aaron, klasac! Thanks so much for the kind comments. if only i had a better camera---i could make my plants look....maybe half as good as yours! you guys are like THE best when it comes to growing Drosera. i hope my dews could look like that...preferably sooner than later.

    @Aaron: those plantletts are pretty much the only thing i have left from the mother plant which i got from Butch during the auction. some fungus that turns the plant red and causes it to lose its dew came, and pretty much ruined the plant. in fact, the mother plant's remains are found in the second photo, center plant. i thought i had lost it but lo and behold! i got all these plantlets! the largest one is starting to reach the diameter of a quarter while the smallest is about 3/4 the entire area of my pinky nail.

    @jpappy789: very hot. they're in the LL tank, and not only that, they're about 3-4 inches away from the lights! key is to keep them very hot and very wet. if they happen to go into dormancy, start cooling them off and allow the soil to dry out and water sparingly. however, if you do keep them hot and wet, they will continue to grow.

    Ah ok. I wasn't able to gather from reading if they could be grown kind of like pygmies where if you keep them wet enough that they will likely not go into dormancy.

    nope josh. heat is the key. you can grow them in waterlogged conditions given that it is warm for them. if the temps drop too low, that's when they go dormant. i think this is opposite for pygmies: they go dormant if it's too hot?
