    Nice pics. I noticed that my gemmae plantlets do much better outside. Maybe I will do a pots w/in a pot approach for pygmies later on.

    BTW Tamlin, the D. pulchella gemmae you sent beginning of Dec are now full-size and producing gemmae! They are also doing fine indoors.

    Hi all,
    very beautiful pictures, the first one looks realy like a D. miniata or androsacea growing from gemmae from the last winter.
    The second should be D. nitidula x occidentalis . by the way - good old "10 Pfennig" from Germany [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    My Pygmy drosera are getting ready to flower too, but species like D. mannii, playtystigma echinoblasta .. needs sometimes more time for generative phase.
    I cultivate my Pygmy drosera in a greenhouse which i heats in the winter to 8-14 C, growing light (400 w with high blue spectrum) , sandy soil. After rooting I `m carefully whith the moistness of the Substrate, so i have no problems with moss which stands in "fighting" which those small drosera [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    sorry for my bad english,

    Michael
