    Did you strike them in the sphagnum or in water?

    Water, I haven't tried sphagnum. Since the plant usually only has 4 leaves going at a time it takes a while between cuttings. It makes experimentation more difficult.

    D. graomogolensis winter test. Towards the middle of fall I put one pot of cuttings outdoors while the other was on an east facing windowsill. Plants were approximately the same size and age coming from the same batch of cuttings.

    Outdoors group (minimum temperature this winter 37F)


    Windowsill group (minimum temperature 64F)


    The winter group is not really growing. There are a number of D. venusta seedlings in there, a couple D. graomogolensis died. Windowsill pot has only a few plants left - others were donated to the NASC auction.

    My recommendation that the temperatures for this species not go below 42F still stands. They'll survive but have the indication of the slow one year dance-of-death that South American Drosera do if exposed to too low temperatures. Time will tell. Oversized, thick walled pots will help.

    Looks pretty conclusive alright. How big were the plants when the experiment began? I'm guessing that several people cringed at the thought of graomogolensis plants being sacrificed for science.

    Just got a new macro lens for my Nikon D40. I got a Nikkor 40mm F2.8 lens. It is relatively cheap, especially compared to most other nikon macro lenses. This camera is AWESOME, though. I am a teenager, so I am not so experienced YET.

    Here are they pictures of the dews, though

    Drosera Spatulata Flower Stalk:



    Drosera Adelae:



    And finally, my seed grown Drosera Indica (Saving the best for last)

    Excellent! The more photos you take, the more experienced you get

    Great plants and photos! Well done.

    I took some pics for Mass today of my favourite D. capillaris form - Drosera capillaris "Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida, US"

    They are 1.5 cm plantlets - the mature ones died after making seeds. I think they're annuals.




    Sorry about the fish food!
