    Hi. What is a good way to provide heat to petiolaris drosera? Currently, i have just recived 2 potted plants of unknown petiolaris drosera, so i placed it in a zip lock bag and place the bag on top of my reptile heat-tape. Does heat to the roots effect the plant? I know i can provide heat from light bulbs, but, does heat from the bottom hurt?

    Same here. The bottom heat greatly increases the growth rate.
