    Hey in this thread I will post pictures of my Petiolaris complex drosera, and other carnivorous plants I grow. My collection is small now, but in this thread I will post more pictures as my collection grows!

    It looks a lot redder than when you got it. The developing leaves sure look like Dionaea leaves to me.

    I'm guessing that your light levels are pretty high, which is generally a good thing for sundews. 'Looks great. Regular feeding sure makes a difference to my plants.

    Ya well, the paradoxa when I got it it turned completely red from adjusting to my conditions after being shipped, but the new growth is green. I think when leaves are used to lower light levels the turn really red once exposed to more intense light. however once the plant gets used to the conditions it won't be as red with new growth, in my experience.
    first arrived,

    then,

    new growth in new conditions,

    Well hopefully it doesn't happen to your falconeri.

    From what I've seen of D. falconeri they like to be all red when the light is bright enough.

    About the falconeri, the new growth is smaller than the growth before I received it. Should I be concerned or is it just adjusting to my conditions? Your input is much appreciated.

    a resent pic...


    I also had a theory that since it has been given more light than before, are the leaves just smaller because the plant isn't worried about photosynthesis as as much before?sort of similar to a venus flytrap when given more light. I mean the lamina are the same size if not bigger, the leaves are also much redder than before. Then again shouldn't the plant be growing bigger leaves since it is so small? either way I hope the plant will be ok. Thanks for your consideration!
