    Unhappy

    Just wanted to know how many people here cultivate Drosophyllum lusitanicum. If you do, just say "I do", although pics would be nice too.

    Thanks,
    Mike [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    LOL, well does "going too soon" count? I have one that is saved for me till it gets bigger. Not alot of people have one cuz it doesnt ship well (thats what i heard).
    Taproot, Anti-Flag, The Casualties, Alkaline Trio, Eleventeen, Deadsy, AFI...what's not to love?

    I do

    I would definately recommend anyone interested in growing this plant for the first time reads The Portuguese Sundew (Drosophyllum lusitanicum Link.) in Nature and Cultivation by Jan Flísek & Kamil Pásek (2001). Even those just interested in these plants should have a look.

    Cheers

    Vic

    I do,

    seeds germinated about 2 months ago, had about 10 seeds but only 2 germinated so far...
    One question I have, I heard 2 of these plants should not be close to each other or even in the same pot, but when I placed the seeds I forgot about that, so now both are growing in the same pot (ABout 8 cm from each other). Will one of them die?

    Thanx
