For anyone attempting to care for this Drosera, here of some pointers. HUMIDITY- is really important to this species. After an aphid outbreak on my Drosera collection, my plants were badly weakened and sickly looking. I made the mistake of placing the now aphid free plants (lady bugs, thank you all) on my windowsill for some sun. The filiformis 'All red' took the hardest blow, as all new growing points "burned" away and the plant ceased growth.
Temps/Light Level-Even though this plant's other types (filiformis ssp. trayci and filiformis filiformis) are temperate, this form likes it tropical [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] . Keep it warm and the lights should be bright. It grows best in the condtion of other tropical drosera, especially "multifida Extrema".
I now have my mangaled plant in my tropical terrarium, where other recovering heat wave and aphid attacked plants are recovering. New points are growing, but not to thier full redness. Good luck to anyone with this plant-Zach
