    new to Drosera.

    just got these today in the mail. i was told this is Drosera venusta. rather tiny and in bad shape, but i hope they will perk up soon. i potted in peat moss and sand 1:1. watered it with distilled water. i washed the peat moss and sand with distilled water before potting them up.

    Looks as though they are likely D. venusta. A pretty forgiving species, they should bounce back in a couple weeks. Grow them all year round at room temperatures with plenty of light. Sounds like you've got everything else right so far.

    Happy Growing!

    Sundews are like the staple of all cp peoples. There was this one point in my cp "career" where I didn't have any sundews. I think that I would have eventually shriveled up and died without them. Thankfully Kinjie sent me some gemmae, so I'm ok now.
