    Nice photo Jim!

    Not hard to flower at all if given bright, indirect light or place 5-6 inches below a florescent light.
    I also from time to time crush up a little fish food flakes and sprinkle a little on my sundews to fertilize them.

    They flower rather easily. Getting seed is another matter. The white flower form seems to have disappeared from cultivation.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
