    What does everyone think about a terra cotta pot? The reason I ask is because due to evaporation at the exterior of the pot, it's supposed to help keep the roots cool, similar to how sweat cools us down. Has anyone tried this?

    Warm roots don't seem to be a problem with D. regia. I think a terra cotta pot would waste too much water. But that's my two cents.

    Not trying to interrupt the discussion, but I thought it would be as good a place as any to ask:

    Does anyone know where we can find D. regia for sale? Besides e-bay. I've looked through all my resources and can't find any available now.

    Thanks!

    You're not supposed to ask for sources on Terraforums! D. regia generally sell out very quickly when they are rarely available.

    I was checking out an older thread about Drosera regia, noticed my image links were broken, so I fixed them. My images in that thread were Drosera regia 'Big Easy', but it was before the cultivar was registered. I updated the images and repaired the links. Back then I was also busy propagating these delightful plants. Hopefully I can get that going again. Here is a tray of little ones from back then (the image is a link to a thread about propagating Drosera regia 'Big Easy' -->
