    Drosera slackii

    My renewed interest in these Drosera is down to corky. Blame him

    Drosera slackii a plant I grew for many many years until the winter 2010-11 finished them off. I don't suppose they're not too used to 0F (-18C) in their home in South Africa.

    I know that D. slackii is a notoriously finicky species and will regularly refuse to dew up. What have you found to be the optimal growing conditions?
