    drosera madagascariensis flowering tricks

    is there any tricks to getting this species to flower? ive read somewhere they flower once they topple over. what if i were to trim the growth tip or maybe cut the base and replant it

    edit: or what may be the optimal photoperiod to induce flowering?

    I think I just got lucky:



    I believe the species sub-tropical, so there is some semblance of seasonality. I would go with a 10 (winter) -14 (summer) hour photoperiod.

    They are a subtropical to tropical plant, occuring from South Africa to mid-Africa and Madagascar, hence hte name, so no, they do not need a dormancy.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Mine flower every summer, but they're outside. Only large ones with a good stalk flower. Should support stalk otherwise it will fall over and die before flowering ends.

    Mine have never flowered but then they always die back to the roots a few months after flopping over. Supporting them is a good idea.
