    South American drosera media

    Has anyone had luck growing SA drosera in a peat based media? I purchased D. graomogolensis potted in 50/50 peat/perlite. Wondering if this is adequate for now. My conditions are reasonably cool. That area of the grows pace is probably high 70s during the day and cooler at night.

    I didn't know that they liked otherwise - I had D. kaieteurensis in 1:1 lfs/perlite and it didn't grow at all until I transferred it to chopped sphagnum/peat/perlite.

    It's also generally agreed that D. graomogolensis is the most adaptable of the SA Drosera and does well in a fairly generous range of conditions, so I wouldn't worry about it.
