    Those dews look great! Agreed about the flowers, that's an unbelievable show they're putting on. However, about what you said about reintroducing into the wild, not a good idea. Those are pygmy sundews, endemic to mostly Western Australia, and it's not a great idea to introduce species not native to that area to another habitat. It's not good for the ecosystem and would be taking away from the diversity of the endemic species which inhabit your neighborhood/county. In addition, since they're pygmies, they're probably not going to "grow up" much more considering they look pretty mature and most likely won't get much larger, if any larger at all. Just my 2 cents. And thanks for posting the pics!

    Not sure what you mean by this, but bear in mind that none of these Drosera (you have three different types there, you know) is native to California, so planting these out "in the wild" is inadvisable. Perhaps you simply meant that you intend on moving the pot outdoors?
