    Drosera peltata ssp auricilata Bathurst, Australia, NSW Dec. 28, 2011
    Can see this one will potentially become a weed. I am seeing seedlings pop up in other pots.....











    Drosera menziesii ssp. menziesii Dec. 28, 2011
    Wishing this one would hurry up and bloom for me. Like a watched kettle never boiling

    Very nice photos! D. peltata is a total weed! I keep it way on the other side away from my other Drosera..

    Finally starting to see my D. gigantea poking up..

    D. macrantha flower up near the sprinkler lines... a little pinker in person but hard to get the right color with the sun shining through.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Ah!
    Let me know when you start picking out the weeds! Very nice!
    Love them!

    I lost a few "weedy" plants a few years ago, and realized that it is a no win situation sometimes.
    When a plant does overly terrific & grows like mad, propagating in every free spot available... we no longer are as amazed at its beauty, growth & vitality, as it becomes "just a weed"! But when a plant grows poorly & is difficult to propagate, we want it to grow more and it won't, which then is generally unrewarding!
    As for me, I have learned the hard way, that when a plant gets so prolific it is "weedy", that is when things are going just right for it & for me! Indeed there is variation among plants and their growth capabilities, which provides good contrast & thus makes me enjoy them all!

    So someday if anyone has too much D.Peltata seed (stolonifera and/or other such thrivers'...) feel free to let me know. I am sure I can come up with something in trade. (Talk about weeds, I actually have a dandelion growing in my kitchen currently!) I will have to post a pic of it when it blooms!
    In my experience, plants that have older leaves dieing off all over while the new ones form at the growing tips, makes for a sloppy looking plant. I often end up neglecting them until they look a mess and then do a major pruning of old growth. I love when they look clean & new, but it never lasts.
    I think that with automating other things, I am wishing I could figure out how to make that job easier too!

    Nice plants! Keep them growing!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    ah crap. Forgot about that note to self..

    Can't wait until spring so I can pot these up something proper. And this is my first year with tuberous dews, so suggestions and recommendations are welcome. I already know they need better (bigger) pots.

    front right: D. lowriei 'Giant' looks like it's breaking a new clump to the surface.
    front middle: D. macrophylla ssp. monantha
    front left: Seeing a bunch of stalks coming up in the D. menziesii ssp. menziesii pot
    back right: D. peltata with a couple D. allantostigma
    back left: D. erythrorhiza ssp. squamosa (Albany Hwy) pushing out a 3rd growth point. YAY!
