    Are these mature? Pretty droseras you have there, i have a pot full of drosera gemmae, they took off recently and are growing really well, but I am curious how tall will the grow.( I do know these stay fairly small.)

    I'm guessing that you guys are doing different things, as in having different conditions. Are yours experiencing seasonal changes?

    Guess I wasn't too clear in my captioning. They all are 2 month old plants. The gemmae date is the date I potted them up (keep wanting to say sowed, but you don't really sow them - more like PLACE ) and the date on the next photo is the date the picture was taken (within 1 or 2 days). Mine are receiving 10 hrs light 3" below 1 full spectrum & 1 warm white fluorescent bulbs with temps around 74F and 45 - 60% RH.

    I assume this is abnormal behavior - not sure why it's happening, not all in a pot are doing this.


    At present there are 5 different types in spike the names & numbers in each 4" pot are listed below:

    nitidiula 2 of 12
    leucostigma 8 of 21
    occidentalis 6 of 18
    occidentalis australis Warriup 5 of 17
    sargenti 1 of 20
    occidentalis australis Warriup 10 of 17

    the potting media in all is 60-40 peat-sand.

    Other gemmae from the same batches potted at the same time are in sand and 40-60 peat-sand have not shown the same growth pattern under the same growing conditions. The ones in pure sand are growing the slowest.

    The leucostigmas in the 2-12-12 post are the ones just above the "Just emerging" caption in the 2-1-12 post. There are only 12 days between the two photos.
