    ok thanks. I've been leting the soil dry out, so do I keep them on the tray system? With an inch of water or so?

    Yup, as in Joseph's testimony, these plants like it wet. And yes, I use the tray method for all my d adelae. That way, there's no guess work. These plants are like weeds - hard to kill unless you dry em out or something, and multiply like crazy - not to mention they catch little bugs like crazy too.

    Some of the best ones I ever grew weren't planted in anything. Once upon a lazy moment, while separating some Drosera adelae plants to pot up separately I left them in the shallow tray of water I was using to keeping them from drying out during their move. I noticed that they grew quite well simply lying in a shallow tray of water so I just continued to make sure that the tray was kept full of water. They grew, multiplied, bloomed, and continue to grow very well as semi-aquatics.[/QUOTE]
    thanks I'll try that with one of them. Is there a risk of losing them, though? thanks

    I've been wondering, how tall does the stem get before it flowers? It seems like the stem will grow to a foot or something. lol

    Flower scapes on mine are generally less than 5 inches long. They usually remain in bloom for 6 months or more.

    I came to the topic looking for soil mixes for the Queensland Australia Drosera and found this! I started the same experiment (peat/sand/perlite vs. lf sphagnum and perlite) for D. adelae, D. shizandra and D. prolifera last night. Any bets on how its going to go? :-)

    Any differences between the three species in anyone's experience as to growing media preference?
