    Can anyone suggest me some sundews that are easy to take care of? I only have a capensis and adelae. I keep them in a terrarium that stays around 75 degrees and 75 humidity. So far mine are doing good except the capensis doesnt have much dew since I had to move it from an airtight glass jar which most likely had a higher humidity. I only started with carnivorus plants a couple months ago so I am far from being a pro. I was thinking about getting an intermedia 'Florida'. Any suggestions welcome.

    Some of the easier species include: Aliciae, binata, capensis "albino", dielsiana, intermedia (tropical), natalensis, and spatulata.

    Hi Shizuo

    Welcome to the forums. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] D. spatula is a pretty easy one to grow. And d. aliciae is too. I'm glad you are getting into the sundews. They are my favorites. I believe Phil and Jeff have d. spatulata...if they are still in stock. I have some d. capillaris seedlings but they are too small to ship out now or I'd send you one.

    Wouldn't want to play against you in a game show where you had to hit a button to answer. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Try D. Capensis also known as the Cape Sundew. It is a good beginner plant. Easy to take care of.
