    I believe his avatar is D. regia, not D. adelae. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Yes, you are correct. My current avatar is Drosera regia.

    Great pics Joseph. I have to repot both of my D. adelae and wonder if you would be so kinda as to suggest a media mix for them. They live outdoors year round here in S. Florida.
    Also I would like to know if you use the "tray" method. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    Yes, I use the tray method with most of my Drosera adelae. I use and have used many different media with Drosera adelae. I recommend using Sphagnum peat moss, alone, or as a major component of the media if you wish the plants to color up easily, or one with mostly LFS (Long Fiber Sphagnum) if you plan to keep them greener.

    With regard to the avatar I was subtley referring to the fact that you have a butterwort forum name and a sundew avatar. A little irony. Also, I purchased one of those adelae in the plastic cube from Lowes. I believe the medium is the sphagmum peat. Mine is too big for the mini-terrarium cube, with its leaves touching the plastic. It has sent out three new plants (rhyzomes?). I tried transfering it to a wider container - a cut down gallon plastic milk container. It isn't happy with me right now. its leaves are drooping and I've lost some dew. Any suggestions?

    Keep the humidity up. Sundews will often become droopy and dewless after transplantation. I swear that D. adelae hates me though! Every time I transplant this plant, it dies a slow, torturous, mutated growth death [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] !

    Good luck to you, with this evil little plant! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Do I remember correctly about these adelae being grown open tray method? How does one keep the humidity up, with open tray? Are they in a greenhouse or is there a humidifyer?
