    sundew rescue mission. Help!

    I was at the gift shop of a conservatory that I often go to and found these sundews and I decided to give them a chance for survival, but I am unsure as to what they are. one is a d. filiformis, but I am unsure of the other two. Any advice on these plants is appreciated.

    I'll get better photos up soon.

    Best guess, D. intermedia, 2nd guess, D. anglica.

    Good growing,
    Mike

    It almost looks like that first plant has formed hibernicula, which is odd for this time of year.

    Since the plant in the first photo looks like it has formed hibernacula, you could try stimulating dormancy until the spring of 2017, I just don't know whether can survive that long being dormant.

    Maybe I could do a very short dormancy, say one month and bring it out to let it heal.

    They are both D. intermedia; if there are green leaves still there is no need to attempt forcing a dormancy but instead allowing the plant to continue setting in current conditions until either all the leaves die off or temps begin to drop; then, give it a dormancy.
    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.

    How cold should I allow them to become? I don't want them freezing to death.
