    That's wonderful that you put the scale on them too! Don't usually get that.. just people saying "they're small" which is entirely useless in comparisons like scorpioides vs. paleacea.

    The plants decline quite a bit during gemmae production since they are not producing trap leaves. You should have seen them a month or so ago. The D. roseana are actually slightly larger but you're only seeing the top third over the pesky moss (since removed).

    Gorgeous! This is why I love pygmies. Have you tried growing them in 80% sand? It seems to work well for me. Keeps moss from taking over.

    They're like little gems. Especially that D. helodes, I love that one!

    The D. trichocaulis is in 100% sand and still gets some moss! D. roseana likes wetter conditions so there is some peat moss in there. I try to start a new colony free of moss each year but always seem to transport some of the spores along with the gemmae.
