    Sundew growth Feeding vs non feeding

    Here are some.d. capensis×spathulata propagated.via leaf cutting like the title says one was feed one wasnt.They were both feed when they were super tiny. Its about 3 weeks of not feeding. Its pretty cool what a difference feeding can do.

    I always find that the plants that eat the most grow the largest and healthiest. Good luck with those cuttings;they look great!

    Good Growing,
    Kenny

    Yeah, it's this way with most CPs, but easpecially Drosera.. they seem to require more food than most other CPs.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    My Filiformis catches plenty of bugs but my VFTs don't. Does this work for all CPs?

    Some Old World species, such as Drosera regia, suffer greatly from not being fed; and it had been one of the most common reasons for its frequent death in cultivation . . .
