    My Sundews

    Hallo!

    I just wanted to share some of my Drosera with everyone. These are some photos of 4 plants in my collection. I've got a couple more which I will post at a later stage.

    Enjoy!


    My first plant! D. Capensis Or the "Sun Grabber" as I call it. I grow it outside and it grows in a way that looks like it wants to catch the sun







    Some of the seed fell into the pot when it flowered and germinated.


    My large D. Binata starting to grow back






    Smaller form D. Binata





    My Venusta





    I got these from my cousin, really want to replant the Pygmy's but afraid they might not make it.

    Well-grown! D. capensis is my favorite sundew!

    I personally wouldn't try to move the pygmies anywhere--just wait for gemmae and make yourself a whole new pot full. I have successfully transplanted them before but always lose a few.

    Very cool! Sundews are currently my favorite and make up the majority of my collection. But I'm also just beginning so who knows where this addiction will take me.

    I like sundews because they are beautiful, relatively fast growing (some of them) compared to some other CPs, and their small size makes them reasonable to grow without getting a greenhouse.
    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

    Nice venusta! I have several and they just keep spreading for me through the roots.

    Thanks all!, yes I must agree. Sundews are my favorite CP's and I can't stop collecting them! need more and more.

    I currently have 12 different species of Drosera in my collection, some of them have just germinated and some of my gemmae just budded and I have some more species incoming from another collector (D. Regia and not sure what else he is including in the package)

    I've built myself a terrarium in which I germinate my seeds and Bud the gemmae. Will post some pics on the terrarium sub-forum.
