    Sundew Terrarium

    I made this mini terrarium a week ago (right when I got the plants)

    I am pretty sure it is less than 1 gallon, maybe 1/2 gallon.

    Pictures:

    Drosera Nidiformis



    Drosera Adelae



    Drosera Spatulata



    Drosera Capensis "giant"



    Full tank shot (Overhead)



    And my sphagnum propagation for the future (hopefully the moss in the tank will grow!)



    Thanks for looking

    Will

    Very nice and good selection of sundews. Control the seed production on the D. nidiformis and D. capensis or they will soon take over the tank. D. adelae will divide from runners like crazy too but much easier to control than the others.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Plants look like they're ready to grow. What kind of lighting do you use? What kind of medium? I look forward to seeing pics of your success.

    I am currently using 3 6500k 40w 4' T12 bulbs and 1 4200k 32w 4' bulb in two 2-bulb fixtures.

    My media is a mix of silica sand, peat moss, and sphagnum moss (about 1:2:1)

    I also just clipped back a lot of the adelae for leaf cuttings, so I will post pictures of the trimmed version soon.

    I left them alone today after misting them last night, and here are some new pictures.

    Drosera Adelae with so much dew, that the red hairs connect with dew



    And new leaf on D. Capensis "giant" So happy!





    Now all I need is a sweet new macro lens...

    I'd say you're doing pretty well with whatever you've got on the camera now. You might consider using a tripod, if you don't already, and locking your shutter to the smallest aperture if you can. This would allow you to have more of your photos in focus. Just a thought.
