    Nicely grown Joseph. Intense light certainly makes a big difference, as does substrate. I have noticed plants grown in live sphagnum tend to be more green, even with the same good lighting. Martin has shown photos of his plant grown in full sun where the leaves are so purple they almost appear black. This plant is very variable when grown under different conditions. I would like to add that Joseph also runs a humidifier non-stop in addition to the light regimen he uses, a requirement in the typically low humidity where he lives. In my experience, this species is sensitive to low humidity.

    Funny because I've seen this species sold as 'red cultivar'! Opinion seems to b divided.

    I've grown a great many Drosera adelae over the past 30 years or so, some that were supposed to be "all green". For all the variation they displayed, they all may have been the exact same clone. I have yet to grow one that remains even a little green, under high light intensity. I have not yet grown one that didn't respond positively to the highter light levels by turning red. If there are any truly "different" clones of Drosera adelae I would like to grow them someday. It would also be nice if they were officially registered, so I could be a llittle more sure of just what I was growing.

    I admit, I am a bit skeptical. Honestly, I would like to grow more than one clone of Drosera adelae. I wouldn't want to pay $15 for a nice large (green) 'Giant' unless I could grow it in the same media next to my other Drosera adelae and observe how it keeps its own characteristics. I could always place some of my own plants under lower light and get them to grow larger and greener.

    When i was growing this in tons, my original clone came from Clyde Bramblett, and after it multiplied and was divided and had plants growing out of the bottom of the pots...well you get the picture.
    Anyway, some turned so dark and narrow-leafed they were purple, while others sitting right next to those were still green and some were red to orangish like Joseph's. These were all from the same plant. Maybe somebody can divide theirs and try some in peat, lf sphagnum, ect, since I did not really pay attention back then.
    You really have to be a skeptic when you see some advertized as "all red" clone, as you never know.

    Regards,

    I grow 3 types. One is the typical starfish one, another has narrow lance shaped leaves that are consistently produced in varrying conditions, and the newest is a giant form. I have also heard of a pink and white flowered form.

    My D. adelae at home, growing under lower light conditions, are green. My D. adelae at my office, growing in a west window, is a beautiful bronzy red.



    Not as lush and beautiful as Joseph's but shows the different coloration when grown under strong lighting.

    If you'd like to see more color in your plants, try increasing the light. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
