    Drosophyllum isn't a sundew; they're not even closely related (this one is actually rather close to Nepenthes)
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Lol. I did not say "my favorite drosera." I know they are not related to drosera. I said “sundew” as in Portuguese sundew, which is another name for them along with Dewy pine, as in they produce dewy leaves that trap prey like other sundews and in appearance look like a sundew, etc., etc., thus "my favorite “sundew.” Jeeze Louise!

    hcarlton's information is useful for those who are new to CP's or don't know much about Drosophyllum.

    That pine sap / honey scent is definitely starting to fill up the room but not too strong yet. Thanks for the nice comments everyone.

    DJ how are your drosos doing ? I remember you were keeping a few big pots outside. I lost my big plants when I had to go away for the summer.

    Good memories of the scent of honey filling the entire greenhouse on a hot summer's day, even when there was a triple layer of flies on the entire plant.

    Those are nicely grown, congratulations.

    For the experienced "Portuguese sundew" aka "Dewy Pine" aka "Slobbering Pine" growers on the list (yes, I'm being a smart*****)...

    Do you feed plants which have been started indoors? I successfully germinated a single seed in December and plan to move it outside after the risk of deep freeze is over. I've put some fish food flakes and ground, dried meal worms on the plant a couple of times but it doesn't look like they are being digested. I'm allergic to blood worms, otherwise would be using them.
