    Excellent. They should thrive in your climate I couldn't get away with growing them in live Sphagnum in case they go dormant.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    It's a new method for me. Mostly because live sphagnum is great for hardening tc plants.

    I used to grow them potted in sphagnum or peat but somehow they disappeared from the collection....mealy bugs at the roots, dormancy during the cooler months (??), kept shrinking etc.

    Are you growing these in a terrarium, Cindy? I am curious about how you would go about it in a tropical climate. For me it is a heated tank with a lid.

    I've always loved these dews. Especially the really fuzzy plants. You have some great looking plants Cindy. Thanks for sharing.

    Basically, I live in a heated tank...with high temperatures and high humidity year round. LOL

    The plants are normally placed at the balcony under natural light but this season, they are under T5s as there's no direct sunlight shining into my apartment.
