    This seems like a good thread to ask the question what triggers flowering in sundews light cycle or age

    depends. some are very seasonal. I suspect those have environmental cues. Day length, temp. etc. winter growing, tuberous, areas with discrete wet and dry seasons. Others are ever blooming and I suspect age might be the most important factor.....

    Drosera kaietuerensis - shot with my Lester Dine (Kiron) 105mm f/2.8 macro. The first two shots using a Pringle's can snoot over the built-in in flash, the rest using the Lester Dine (Yuzo) ring flash at 1/16th power. These flowers are very ephemeral and in the time it took me to change to the ringflash the flower closed some. Say about 5-6 minutes. Managed to catch it wide open for once

    Wow 5-6 minutes is really fast! I find it interesting that different species of Drosera have their flowers close at different speeds. Venusta flowers seem to last the longest for me as they stay open for several hours. Also, I'm glad I was able to see the cistiflora flower in person last week. It was amazing.

    That's quite an amazing score! How did you manage to catch it at the right time?

    Mostly it is a matter of dumb luck and stumbling across the flowers when they are opening or wide open. I usually keep my camera handy when watering my plants. If the flower is opening I'll move the pot so it is in front me where I am working during the day so I can monitor its progress.

    D. pygmaea - started from seed, I've been waiting for flowers to confirm that this is not D. "Lake Badgerup" which is often mislabeled as D. pygmaea. Appears to be D. pygmaea but perhaps I can catch one of the flowers wide open for a better view of the naughty bits.
