    ya, my conditions actually need some work, the reason the plant looks good is because I put a dome over the top of it... so the humidity is good in there but not outside of it. I might need to invest in a terrarium..

    Perhaps the higher humidity is only needed when you are rooting a cutting? I find that whenever I am dealing with most plants, especially bog plants, that have a compromised root system raising the humidity increases the chances of success. But afterwards you can sometimes drop the humidity level. Or not.

    I love how so many CPs can be easily propagated by pulling bits off of existing plants.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Okay, Its been a while since my last update... so lets get started!

    My Drosera Paradoxa has grown leaps and bounds since I got it! (and I discovered a little surprise!)








    As for the D. Falconeri it has finally acclimated to my conditions! and it is putting out ever larger leaves! (The black dots on the leaves are extremely small insects that live in the soil, that I can't seem to get rid of... Well at least they keep the plant fed.







    The Paradoxa division from the mother plant is doing great!






    No new Petiolaris complex for now... For I have been busy with other cp projects, but I plan on getting other species soon! (if any of you have any spare petiolaris drosera around.... I would be happy to buy them! Thanks again for all the support!

    -Robby
