    How big is yours?

    I own a D. capensis 'red' that is 11 inches across and 4.5 inches high. I grow it in a souviner glass from rain forest cafe that is about 5 inches deep. lighting is by a cfl just inches from its tip. So how big is your?

    My biggest ever was only 6in in diameter....although I don't seem as good at growing the red form as I am at growing other forms of D. capensis.

    Circumference is the distance around the perimiter of a circular object, diameter is just the distance across a circular object. Drosera capillaris plants usually grow with radial symetry, where their leaves radiate out from the stem/central growing point, forming a sort-of spherical or cylindrical form.

    Just measured it, mine are also 4.5'' inches tall. They're flowering right now. Maybe that's the maximum size. Jack, how intense is the all-red colouration on your plants? I have very powerful lighting but some tentacles are always green, usually the younger ones. My plants never look like THIS for example.

    It kindof sounds like you're making this a contest. I hope no

    I will say my biggest is 3" in diameter, but its definately not mature. I have 2 clones, and the second one is dime sized, LOL. It just sprounted from cuttings a week ago

    Yep! You're the man!

    I better edit this before Joseph Clemens sees it :

    D. dichotoma is very prolific...more so than capensis with cuttings, arguably. Just keep waiting
    D. binata var. dichotoma is very prolific...more so than capensis with cuttings, arguably. Just keep waiting
