    mine grow in a bright place (protected from too much direct sun during summer, but definitly in a bright place !).
    ´Humidity of 70% seems to be enough, I had grown some them on a humid windowsill without any problems.

    I wouldn't mist them.

    Dr adelae likes a wet substrat and grows well on the tray system :

    Martin you always seem to have the healthiest plants. What is your secret!? Lots of dew even when not being in greenhouse or terrarium! Is Germany that humid?

    Hey Martin,

    Great looking plants of Drosera adelae 'white flowered'. Must have given them a lot of light for the stunning red leaf coloration.

    pretty much 3 simple rules..

    1) water tray method

    2) keep it in a humid environ (terrarium, covered glass vase. etc)... basically any sealed or nearly sealed container works

    3) give em decent light.

    mine arent as dark red as martin's, but look just as beautiful and healthy. the leaves remain bright green with red dew drops. i imagine if i add more light mine might become darker like martins but last time it tried i cooked them...ooops.
    anyway, follow those simple rules and the plant is easy to grow and great to have

    Maybe such brilliant coloration just takes time.

    Mine are in low light on the bottom level of a terrarium. 2 bulbs, temp. 75-80 F, very high humidity--80%+.
    Potted in 2:1:1:1 dead sphag/peat/sand/perlite and doing well!

    Thanks everyone, enjoyed the photos.

    Chris
