    Congrats on the graminifolia, NaN. Anything special needed to get that species to strike?

    Beautifully grown, Mickey.

    Ambient temperatures, lots of light and plenty of patience.

    With seedlings I only feed one leaf at a time and try to clean off the left overs before feeding again.

    yes they are freeze dried. i leave them in water for a bit for my fish but had never thought of doing the same for the plants. i was giving them dry, the leaf would curl around it but go dry in a few days and then completely blacken. the new leaves would be bigger so they must be getting something but the eating leaf always died. your view makes a lot of sense, thanks much NaN.

    It doesn't seem you can embed videos from photobucket right now.

    That was fun. And it's a good trick making the photo a live link.

    It looks like this was one of the 30 days or so out of the year that this species has decent looking dew so a picture or two was in order.

    D. hamiltonii - starting to color up nicely




    D. aliciae


    Not bad for using a ~40 year old lens

    Very nice looking dews NaN!! You mention that your D. hamiltonii only has nice dew 30 days out of the year? Mine are dew making machines. Now the D. aliciae....that's another story. My plants look like death for 9 months out of the year then they suddenly start to grow and produce dew.

    Which lens did you use for these pictures?
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
