    They're baaaaaaack! Never ceases to amaze me how rapidly D. trinervia grows back from dormancy. First signs of life started late last week:

    From this: (7 Oct 2011)


    To this: (22 Nov 2011)


    Looks like even this year's seedlings are making a comeback!

    A minimum of 8 weeks with at least 6 of those bone dry. You can induce them out of dormancy by watering them since they start growing again when the rains begin. You can also hasten dormancy by drying them out as long as they've been well fed they'll survive. You try to keep them from dormancy by keeping medium wet but I was losing about half of them every time the summer/winter cycle went through. And they won't flower if you skimp on dormancy.

    You make it so easy! If so, winter growing drosera are the perfect plants to cultivate around here!

    Straight out of dormancy. I remembered I sprinkled some seed on there about a month ago. If you look closely you can see the seed coat on one of the green specks.


    Another pot of seedlings. The local springtail shortage gotta end soon, the plants are hungry!

    Just to show how rapidly these grow coming out of dormancy compare one weeks difference





    Here's a quick animated GIF. Alignment wasn't perfect due to perspective shift but it's too much work to correct it.
