    I'm located in southern California where our humidity is always VERY low and I successfull grow outdoors Drosera spatulata, slackii, binata and all it's forms, capensis, and rotundifolia along with other rosetted sundews that I don't have IDs for. Just keep the pots nice and wet. In the hot summer months, I simply place a potted bonsai tree near the pots to shield them from the blinding afternoon sun and they always have dew and grow nicely.

    WOW!! Beautiful.

    The humidity is high earlier in the summer and can be nearly unbearable, but it dries out latter. I think the high humidity is due to all the farms nearby.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    I've been getting good results by planting low in the pot and surrounding the plant with a blanket of LFS. I "lost" one plant, only to find it coming up out of the sphagnum!
    I'd rather have a butterwort in front of me than a...wait, ummm...I'll come up with something...
