    Not surprising to me --- isn't Adelae one of the lower light Sundews? They probably loved it.
    They will take lower light levels but like bright light. Even some morning and late afternoon Sun. It reddens the leaves.

    Like this one I've had growing for about 3 years:

    Beautiful plants! I want my Adelea to grow like that
    I'm growing mine in shallow water and under my CFL lights. I've got Venusta, Spatulata, Burmannii and a few other growing in the same Terrarium

    I tried adelae once but failed with it. Then again very few Drosera do well under my care.

    Why not make a small ant colony and sundews inside a controlled enclosure?

    I had a look at my Adelae today AND It looks like it's got new growth points coming out of the medium!





    The larger green on the right seems to be another form of Drosera, think it might be Burmannii

    Struggle to get macro shots with the Phone camera.. bleh

    YAY! They will sprout plantlets EVERYWHERE if you let them! I even get them coming out of the drain holes out of the bottom of the pots. Just give them bright light and keep them in a water tray, you can't miss.
