    What to do with lots of spare sundews.\

    Drosera adelae is creating several clones of itself, and a tray full of sphagnum moss had 3 rotundifolia sprout in the past few days, with quite a few more expected to sprout. Dunno where all the seeds are, they just sorta popped up randomly. Anyone want spares once they get larger?

    When they get large enough, do a give-away on the Trading Post section. I'm sure you'll find plenty of takers.

    Adelae is on my to-grow list. I'd gladly pay for postage to get my hands on some. I might be able to trade some D. intermedia if you think you want some.

    Adelea sprout up from roots that surface. They grow like weeds for me. Great plants! This "tray of Adalea" is about 4 years old now.

    I got an Adelea a month or so ago and it's been struggling to grow. It's basically died down to the roots now
    I've got it in my Terrarium now and really hoping it will grow back. It's the only Drosera so far that I struggle to grow in my conditions.

    How are you growng it? All it needs is bright light and keep it in a shallow water tray / saucer or distilled or rainwater.

    I used to have adelea in my old 20 gal. peat bog terrarium. They grew like WEEDS.
    I also had a very minimal lighting which is super surprising to me.

    Heh, I was just about to walk down to Lowes and see if they have any D. Adelae deathcubes in stock.

    Not surprising to me --- isn't Adelae one of the lower light Sundews? They probably loved it.
