    It is a very frustrating species to grow. It only has two functional trap leaves at any given time. You need to feed it constantly because of the compressed growing season. Most of the time only one leaf on my had dew on it so putting food on the other wasn't a good idea. Liquid fertilizers might work for foliar feeding.

    Sooo jealous. I have been looking for arcturi and hard to find. Can't wait to follow the progress of your seeds.

    I sowed arctaurii seed in the autumn and they germinated the following spring they were nice and cold over the winter. They like to be very wet and as already said they need to be feed. They are the slowest species of Drosera Iv grown so be very patient.

    this worked for me.

    Mine are 72* during the day and 61* at night. As soon as the bog gets redone, I'm throwing them out there and just intend to forget about them. Sink or swim.

    Thanx for all the tips and pictures everyone

    The weathers been too unreliable and unpredictable lately where i live to grow them with any great success so what I've done is made a cold box to germinate them in which hopefully should simulate similar conditions to which they origin from in New Zealand.
