I picked up a baby Droso a couple weeks ago from the local CP nursery... SO STOKED to finally have one of these! It just kind of sucks that it had to be at the END of the season where I could safely keep it outside.
For substrate I used pumice, rinsed black lava rock, rinsed 8grit coarse quartz sand, and rinsed peat in a 1.5 : .5 : 1 : 1 ratio... The .5 is in there because I would of had JUST ENOUGH black lava rock to use IN the mix, BUT I wanted to use some as top dressing, so I subbed in more pumice instead.
Pot is a 10" x 12" terracotta pot I picked up today, and as previously mentioned used black lava rock as a top dressing. Everything sound good to yall?
So a quick question. I live up in the Seattle area, zone 8. I KNOW I wont be able to leave it outside for the winter... How low of a temp can it take? Anyone know? Havent been able to find an exact answer. Just need to know when to bring it inside, which leads me to question #2. What type/how much lighting would you use for one of these guys indoors? Im assuming i'll have to use some sort of spot light since the sucker is gunna be WAAYY to big to go on a shelf in my plant rack.
Anyway, a couple pics:
Before being potted...
And now.. Crappy quick low light pic.. Sun had pretty much set so had to use a really high ISO. :P
