    I was wondering [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] how do sundews live in the wild? Seems like they are a real delicate plant when taking care of. I tend to use the tray method so I do not wreck the dew droplets on the plant. Do the plants just replenish the dew after a rainstorm(mine do not replenish)? That would be the same as spraying sundews but is not recommended when growing. This has boggled my mind for awhile. I can see how pitcher plants, vfts, and other cp's survive but sundews seem too delicate. They must be a tougher plant (as in hardiness) then what most people think.

    Also do any of you have a bog garden with sundews. That is in the open air not a greenhouse. If you do could you post a picture... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks,

    Sundew grow wild all over my property and our entire state. (Alaska) They really aren't as delicate as they look. The ones around here are actually quite tough. The get trampled by dogs, moose, bears, hikers, tourists (or terrorists?) and everything else and bounce right back.
    In my experience they do seem to perk up after a good rain. I'll pay more attention to the dew next rain [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    I also have a bog garden with hundreds of Drosera anglica and D. rotundilfolia, a few Pings etc... I'll post pics soon

    i keep a sundew (rotundifolia i think) outside and spray it down and it replenishes its dew very well. it seems to become more dewy over night and early morning. ive seen it with no dew and the next morning i find it even more dewy than ever. i live in washington state. does anybody know if there are native sundew and pings here?
