    It partly depends on the height of the pots you use but I use 4" to 6" tall disposable cups to pot in and I have the water levels at about 1/2" in the trays they stand in. I find the plants like being top-watered about once a week and as long as they don't get dry it is o.k. to let the water level go down in the tray between refillings. A periodic top-flushing of the pots, say every 2 months or so, will help keep the soil 'sweet'. At least this has worked for me.

    Well Allen Lowrie's new Magnum Opus Carnivorous Plants of Australia Vols 1,2 &3 is shipping. The will be plenty of the latest on the Petiolaris Complex (or whatever it may be called now). Expect some reclassification.

    I had a horrible time trying to keep my pots from being anaerobic. Forbes didn't even try & his pots were very anaerobic - & his Petio's grew like weeds - they cared a lot less than I did - silly me!

There are even line-drawn illustrations: http://florabase.dpaw.wa.gov.au/nuytsia/article/253
    When I saw this post, I was surprised to hear that there were more species added to section Lasiocephala - but alas - the list was "new" in 1996.

    Not a Number: An important event for sure. If anyone is going to buy the series and wants to do a summery of changes or additions for the petiolaris 'dews that would be excellent.

    RL7836: Sorry about getting your hopes up on "new" species. Now we need a summary article of Lowries' new taxonomy for the CPN, perhaps.

    I find when I repot that my plants deal with anaerobic conditions often. 'Doesn't seem to cause any real problems. Just the same it does make me wonder if there is a better way that wouldn't be a lot of effort.

    Hey, my new Drosera Paradoxa (thank you Bluemax!) is producing anther plant on is stem. I'll try to post pics later when I get home, but how long should I let it grow before removing it for repotting? Thanks!

    I generally remove and pot the plantlets on paradoxa when they are about 3/8s of an inch long. It is important to keep the soil a bit on the extra moist side for the first few weeks. Lots of humidity helps, as well. I try to cut off the plantlets as close to the main stem as possible without damaging it.
