    Hi Everyone,

    Does anyone know the humidity requirement for rosetted tuberous drosera(or better yet, does anyone grow these)? Do they grow naturally alongside pygmy droserae in their natural habitat?

    I am also looking for a source in the states for these guys.
    Any help is appreciated

    Hi,

    I grow a few tuberous rosetted Drosera (bulbosa, erythrorhiza, macrophylla, lowriei, rosulata, whittakeri and zonaria).
    I grow them in a relativly cool room (10-15C in winter) with a south facing window and some artificial light (more next winter, because they need a lots of light). They are placed at the windowsill like all other tuberous Drosera with humidity between 40% and 70%.

    They produce only very few "glue" and if they loose theire glue drops they will never recover.
    They catch few or no insects.

    Almost all of my tuberous Drosera are imported from Australia(and taken from nature).
    I hope that I can get all of my future tuberous plants from trades with other growers.

    I have grown D. whittakeri ssp. whittakeri for over a year and it is fairly easy. As Martin mentions the tuberous Drosera need lots of sun and cool temps during the winter growing season to do well.

    The nice thing about whittakeri is that it doesn't mind staying fairly wet during the summer dormant period.

    I just got a bunch of tubers from Czech Republic so we will see how they do long term. I love the tuberous Drosera and this is one area I am putting more focus.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Sorry, I didn't understand the question
    "flavour of plant" ?

    The plants on the cover of "CPs of the world" seem to be Dr. whittakeris ssp. aberans, too. Dr whittakeri ssp. whittakeri has more flowers stalks. (Lowrie III)

    CP2k,

    I purchase my D. peltata from California Carnivores. They're not listed on their website, but they have them in stock.

    I have a some peltata growing in my terrarium. I would import tuberous droserae from AU, but they would start to grow during the summer(temperatures~80-90 daytime-too hot). I have not found any sources in the US for rosetted tuberous droserae. The only tuberous drosera I have seen for sale here is D.peltata.
