I live in Hawaii, and I love carnivorous plants. But I just can't seem to get past the cold weather dormancy thing. I know that lowland Nepenthes can be grown in Hawaiian conditions, but I am wondering what Drosera and Pinguicula can be grown here as well? Barry Rice, a carnivorous plant expert, emailed me saying that there were Drosera and Pinguicula species that could acclimatize to Hawaiian weather cycles. So now I am trying to figure out which ones are suitable.
I've seen mention of 'Mexican' Pinguiculas, but don't know what altitude they are at. Here in Hawaii we have Drosera anglica, but only in one very high remote location. This species would die in my fish tanks because the temperature was too high. Any info you can give me on tropical Pinguiculas that do not require a dry dormancy period would be greatly appreciated.
Likewise, there is the matter of SunDews. I think they are among the prettiest of carnivorous plants. I know there are some 'tropical' varieties, but could you list those tropical varieties that do not require dormancy. I'm leaning towards Drosera intermedia (Cuba), for no reason other than it's point of origin.
I hope that some of you will be able to help me, and bless those of you who take the time to do so! Anyway, this list rules! I've found lots of information reading your posts!
