    Have any of you guys had success with growing from seeds? i am considering growing from seed because i rarely see adult plant for sale other than D. Falconeri and D. Petiolaris. So if you guys have had success with seeds please let me know!!! Thanks!

    @rob: it's a mixed bag, most of the seed in circulation, especially species seed, is old, most with dismal germination rates, but i think this has to do with how the seeds were stored if anything. Rare Exotic Seeds in canada has decent germination rates for ordensis.

    I agree that D. banksii is an oddball. Not only in being an annual plant but the appearance seems more in line with the tuberous sundews. Still, the few sources I can see that mention it place it with the petiolaris complex. There is a lot of work to be done with the taxonomy of these plants and I wouldn't be surprised to see changes in the future. What little I can find out about D. subtilis places it with the tuberous sundews.

    I wanted to increase humidity and cut back on fungus, which was a problem when feeding, so I put in the fan. It's done the job but I don't think it is essential. If I was putting together a new setup I would go without awhile and see if there is a reason I needed one.

    I have grown D. dilatato-petiolaris from seed. It wasn't difficult as Drosera seed goes. On the other hand I received a packet of D. broomensis seed that never germinated. I agree with Amphirion that getting good seed is probably the main challenge.

    Some Good Resource Links

    I was drooling over some great photos of sundews the other day and I came across a link to a magazine with a paper describing the more newly-listed petiolaris sundew species. Sometimes I wonder if I actually have the right species name and I am guessing maybe a few more out there have had the same issue. There are even line-drawn illustrations: http://florabase.dpaw.wa.gov.au/nuytsia/article/253

    And if you don't know about the CP Photofinder you are in for some hours of amazement: http://cpphotofinder.com/

    Those look great, Jimscott. They are the most traps I've ever seen in a photo of Drosera caduca.
