After a winter of weird weather in the UK, lots of mild spells interpersed with occasionally cold snaps (never below 25F (-5C)) I doubted that my most prized sundew would over-winter well enough to survive. However, my Drosera stenopetala hiburnaculum woke up fighting fit in the Spring and has now moved from it's small rosette to producing it's upright leaves. The largest leaf in the picture is just over 1.25 inches long. I hope it flowers again for me this year, it did last year, but so far none of the seed has germinated. I obtained this plant in June 2001 and it's been happy outside, living in pure peat with a deep live Sphagnum topping ever since, with no interference from me, who says it's hard to grow?
My Drosera arcturi, which also lives outside in my mini-bog under the same conditions, has survived the mild winter as well and is starting to put up a flower *bud [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] , I'll post some pictures when it's bigger.
