    How Do You Grow Your Pygmy Sundews?

    Indoors or outside? How do you account for change of seasons / photoperiod / day-night temp differential?

    I only have D. scorpioides, but it sits in a tray under lights with all my my other tropical sundews and bladderworts. It's probably a bit overkill, but I made up a schedule to mimic the natural changes in daylight and adjust between 12-16 hours over the course of the year in 15 minute increments since that's what my timer can do. I suspect that I need to go lower than 12 hours during the winter though since the scorps produce gemmae late and have not flowered.

    As nim, I only have D. scorpioides now, I grew many species in the past. Even these D. sorpioides are growing from gemmae I acquired this year. That pot is out in the greenhouse as is my method. I've put the gemmae in a 4" long tom ( 10 x 10 x 17 cm). I've started using a lot of long toms for various plants, mainly because I' haven't used them as much before . We'll see what a difference it makes.

    I only grow Scorpioides. Indoors under a light year round and in a west facing window. In the fall-Winter the rooms are between 61 and 66 F. They do great. They start producing gemmae in November. I mimic length of day light levels with the ones under the florescent tube. Others are in a west picture window facing West.

    How much water do you keep them in and do you alter the water table, based upon season? Do you top water or add water to the tray?

    Hi Jim, I just keep the water level the same all year. About 1/4 - 1/2 inches. In fall and winter the room they're in stays around 62-65 degrees F.
