    Hi Joseph,

    Is it just me or are all of you droseras orangish? The capillaris was quite orange compared to mine as well. Is this due to growing conditions, the lighting (when you took the pic), the camera, or is it just these plants that happen to be orange in your collection?

    Nice plants though!!! Thanks for sharing the pic!

    I make sure there is a large amount of peat moss in the planting media and keep the plants very close to the lights. I use fluorescent lights, very close to the plants (2-4 inches)and with nothing between the plants and the lights, not even a thin sheet of plastic.

    Noah,
    To be honest I don't really see any orange. I do see red. Perhaps you may need to adjust your monitor some.

    The plants are actually the colors that the photo shows them to be. I do not adjust the tint, I only adjust the camera for the type of light the plants are photographed in.
