    Looks like the D. aliciae made 2 crowns. Those look like the aphids that nearly killed my Hydnophytum. I'm willing to bet that's where they came from.

    Huh. Didn't realize Drosera capensis could go dormant. That explains the look of some of my past capensis, actually. I thought they were dying or dead, they were actually dormant.

    Also: Wow, the side lights is a brilliant idea, and I wish I had thought of it. I wonder if I could find a way to adapt my Lowes wireframe grow racks to work with side lights like that. I could get 2-3 racks going with just a little more effort that way. Great, great idea!

    I used to have a lowes grow rack probably identical to yours, it collapsed under the weight of all of my plants which is why i built my own. If you are going to do the side lights be warned that it creates A LOT of heat and can bake your plants fairly quickly. If I didn't have a couple fans going and a humidifier it would get up to about 105F during the day and only cool to about 85F at night. Thanks though and it's not so much that they have gone dormant it's more that I'm not giving them the care they need so they burn themselves out and when I start to care for them again they start coming back.

    As I showed in my previous pictures I had a pretty bad aphid infestation. I have treated repeatedly and they are finally gone, however something else has taken their place. However, the different pesticides I tried really took a toll on many of my plants. After almost dying completely some of them have come back strong and others quite slowly.

    D. caduca, this is all that is left after aphids, pyrethrin treatments, Bayer Rose pesticide treatments, and whatever this new pest is

    hey mason, are you keeping those petiolaris dews warm enough? by warm, i mean nights no lower than 75. lower temps will lead to dormancy, and even death if not dealt with correctly. only asking because you're growing them alongside south african sundews, which in general appreciate cooler conditions than those.
