    That is quite an impressive collection, Cthulhu138; and you even have one of my most wanted plants, Drosera zonaria. I wish the tuberous species were more readily available in the US, though I need to upgrade my lighting before I even think about buying one.

    You've been busy today! Great-looking plants. They are making me hungry for more sprouts of my own. I finally got one of the D. modesta coming up so I am waiting, not too patiently, for more. The warm weather lingered very late in Pacific Northwest.

    It's been abnormally warm here too but my plants are grown in the basement where it always stays a bit cooler. I've found that as time goes on and the plants settle in more, they set their internal clocks and come up at the same time of year regardless of external weather and temperature.

    3 more D.magna have come up since I took that photo yesterday morning !

    About a week to 10 days from emergence from the media to the point you're seeing here. Non flowering individuals seem to develop a bit more quickly than plants that are putting up flowers. D.magna also produces addition tubers more readily for me than other members of the D.squamosa complex.

    1 week later.......................

    Drosera aberrans - This species requires a somewhat moist dormancy to prevent the tubers from dessicating.


    Drosera basifolia - I have no idea what the 2nd tuber decided to do this year. Rather than coming up as a single plant, it emerged as around 20 smaller plants.




    Drosera hookeri emerging with Pterostylis curta, an Australian terrestrial orchid.


    Drosera lowriei - Type Plant with flowers.


    Drosera lowrie - Giant Plants


    Drosera magna - This species does not often flower in cultivation. 3 additional tubers have emerged since last weekend and the parent plant has sent up 2 growth points.










    Drosera menziesii


    Drosera modesta


    Drosera monantha - Emerging flower stalks.


    Drosera prostrata - Each scape has several flower buds.


    Drosera ramellosa


    Drosera squamosa - Sand Growing Form


    Drosera squamosa - Laterite Growing Form. It appears that my attempts at hand pollinating the flowers was successful.




    Drosera subhirtella


    Drosera tubaestylis


    Drosera whitakkeri


    Drosera zonaria
