    Adelae will produce new plants UNDERWATER at the bottom of water trays. It happens to me all the time. I do not repot mine, they are SO prolific I let them run wild. They are like weeds for me.

    this 9 x 13" tray started as 1 plant.

    Um... So, avoid light-colored pots since they amplify reflected light onto the plants' roots, which turn into new plants? I need to get a Drosera adelae and try this!

    Tommyr,
    White flowers?? I want one!

    All of mine are red. Awesome collection. I love this plant. It's very underrated.

    NO! Light colored pots are GOOD! They REFLECT light keeping the pots COOLER. Adelae liikes bright INDIRECT Sun. That means BRIGHT light but very little direct Sun. They can take SOME Sun but very early morning or very late afternoon only. Roots get NO light, they're under the soil! Roots grow different from above the soil conditions. Without good root growth the top growth will not do well. ANY plant that is not doing well probably has a bad root system.

    The white flowers are not white but red. The camera flash made them white.

    Jcal, I know! I wish I had more pots to use for giveaways, I may try to find some today and save the remaining bits from the rootball -- I saved 2-3 decent sized babies.
    Gigantea, I saw your thread, great work! I hope my repotted ones do fine.
    Being new to this it's great to see the things you read about during research actually happen. That's how I felt when my leaf cuttings got strikes. That's amazing

    i think this has more to do with the pot being partially transparent and not that it is yellow
