    from what I have seen from attempting to grow other winter growing ZA species from seeds. Feed them, keep them cool, short day conditions or they might go dormant prematurely. In a mild climate they might bypass dormancy. I get to do this with many of my tuberous species. they sprout in late winter early spring vs the fall-winter . But my climate is cool mild and well day length doesn't change much more than 1 hour or so

    My D. hilaris seedlings are only nickel-sized right now and they are mostly behaving themselves, though I have a long way to go to bring them to maturity. Getting seeds to germinate is tricky and seems to require heat-striation. Also seed is difficult to obtain in this country. There are several suppliers from the Czech Republic and one from S. Africa that I know of.

    I think i may have to hold off on getting one. I would need a more controlled environment than what i have now its starting to seem like. i dunno... maybe i'll just get some anyways when i feel like it

    there's a guy on ebay selling clumps of them in tissue culture for 35 dollars.. I almost bought one but I don't know how well they would acclimate and that's why i started this thread to ask about it. so they're pretty rare in cultivation right?

    I really just want one because they look like a big fat version of a capensis and i want to make a hybrid with it

    Hahaha, a few people think it is just a variety of D. capensis. Maybe that D. capensis aliciae thingy is just D. hilaris. Or D. hilaris is an allopliod of that hybrid.

    I wonder why there aren't more hybrids of capensis. Its practically the perfect sundew being large, sturdy, fast growing, and extremely tolerant
