    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!

    'Such a display! I like B. linaflora a lot. If you are used to growing sundews there is something almost alien about them, ha! A very nice D. tomentosa.

    Yeah, Byblis definitely look odd after dealing with dews. However, they have their own appeal just the same.
