    It's a myth, perpetuated in the litereature. This year I saw plants growing side by side in nature in Spain, as have others. Check out the link above, Jan and Kamil's Drosophyllum webpage explains how they grow together in cultivation without problems too.

    They say that money talks, but all it ever says to me is goodbye.

    I have several 3-year-old Drosophyllum plants growing together in the same pot and also single plants in their own pots. I cannot tell any difference. However, I also have 3-year-old Drosophyllum plants growing in 8-inch, 6-inch, and 4-inch pots. Without question, the larger the pot, the larger the plant.
