    Sharing a few more:
    The D. hookeri are big, and forming multiple growth points, but refuse to climb

    2 of my stolonifera, however, have good stems

    And while the hookeri are 2 years old, these auriculata Howden, Tasmania are only a couple months old, and look what they're doing

    D. trinervia colony (also have a couple of mystery winter-growers in here as well, look like cistiflora relatives....)

    D. platystigma "A"

    D. roseana

    And D. tracyi are waking up, and there's a flower stalk! Many cool hybrids to follow. I used to call them filiformis tracyi, but after growing these out now, I can see the differences myself

    D. auriculata Howden climbing fast

    trinervia always looks happy

    D. tracyi with its double leaf (though, the tips got burnt by lights before I moved it, so the leaf is only 8" long)

    D. natalensis flower

    One of only 3 flower I've ever seen open on my capillaris FL Long Arm x intermedia

    tomentosa isn't getting any bigger, so fingers crossed it may flower at some point

    burmannii Humpty Doo

    adelae is a weird one for me: at any one time, usually only one side of the pot looks nice

    may need to thin out the prolifera soon too

    More shots:
    D. auriculata (the biggest one) reaching nearly 5" tall

    After only a couple months of growing, D. platystigma "A" is flowering!

    Dewy roseana field

    2 of 5 D. regia seedlings, the biggest has 5" leaves (left)


    And D. brevifolia all starting to flower

    Amazing regias. Awesome plants in general, but your regias are truly shining over all the others. You said they were seedlings and not plantlets from root cuttings? If so, what's your secret

    Yes, seedlings (and I still have plenty of seeds I plan on messing with soon). Not really any secrets, but I follow the suggestions other people give: food, food, lots of food. I also occasionally give dilute fertilizer by the roots along with the hordes of fert-soaked bloodworms the things get.

    Nice regia! I'm getting my own in a few days, and I hope I can grow it as well as you do. Is there anything underneath the live sphagnum?

    More sphagnum, mixed with some perlite. As an interesting experiment when these guys get big, the pot they're in was designed somewhat like lava rock (admittedly it's glazed though), with multiple small holes for roots to pop out of and make plantlets. My plants are a ways from that stage though.

    Some more shots
    D. burmannii "Humpty Doo"

    D. burmannii 'Pilliga Red'


    Not a sundew, but I find it fascinating how the corolla of Byblis fall off in one perfect piece

    D. tomentosa

    New hybrid, nidiformis x natalensis 'Tom Turpin'

    D. affinis net

    D. tracyi flower

    And the whole pot

    with the new split leaf

    D. auriculata Howden, Tasmania getting taller. Also, one flowered today, and it was pink!

    Double leaf on aliciae

    roseana

    scorpioides "Pink flower"

    D. platystigma "A" are forming a nice field

    And one recently gifted me with this:

    I love pygmies, they're so cute in their little colonies, and the flowers are so different from other Drosera. Great pics!
