    My graomo is a trooper - handling warmer & cooler temps w/o a blip (I don't know about low 40's tho...). Otoh - I grew D. villosa from seed and it was the most frustrating species of CP I've ever tried to grow (or at least - one of the most). I couldn't dial in conditions to consistently make them happy - no matter what I did ...
    All the best,

    Outdoor vs indoor. Outdoor grown Drosera always look a little bedraggled from wind effects on the dew. If you want show plants grow them protected from the wind (indoors or greenhouse).





    D. villosa in its glory days:


    D. roraimae "Cero Adaua" this one doesn't seem to form the enormous stems as shown in Stewart McPherson's "Glistening Carnivores"

    D. roraimae "Gran Sabana"

    D. roraimae (the first to go, doesn't look happy even here)


    After cold exposure they'll hang on for almost a year, putting out stunted leaves, no dew - maybe appear to be recovering then expire I tried putting them in my tropical tank or just covering them under lights - didn't seem to help.

    The description on the "Cero Adaua" was that they didn't form the stems which is why they are "small rosettes". From the angle of the other two you can't make out the stems but may up to two thirds of those were stem. From the number of scapes that I clipped off the "Cero Adaua" it was probably as old as the others.

    Ivan Snyder says there is a Drosera capillaris going around mislabeled-misidentified as D. roraimae.
