    Drosera Regia care?

    Hello, I have been interested in possibly getting a Drosera Regia. I have kept vft's and nepenthes with success, but this would be my first sundew. What's their care like? Watering lighting etc. Do they need a dormancy?

    Hi,

    They are awesome plants! Can be a bit tricky to grow for some. Here are some links with good info about Regia:

    I can totally see the attraction to this species and it sounds like you are doing well with your other cp's. D. regia can be kind of expensive and hard to come by, and some find them temperamental. You might want to start out with one of the more common, and cheaper, semi tropical sundews until you get a feel for the genus. For instance, I have been growing D. aliciae for years and I am still in love with this species. They are readily available and do well under conditions that I grow D. regia at. I feel the same way about D. venusta and there are others that would be good for a beginner to start out with. 'Just my two bits.

    I've never heard of D. aliciae or venusta, but I just google imaged them and they do look nice. This isn't a priority, but can they eat stink bugs? They invade my house in winter and I would love to get rid of them, or at least have the sundew eat a few.

    Stink bugs are too strong for any Sundew to hold on to.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
