Thread: D. hirtella var hirtella and d. chrysolepis

  1. #1
    Guest
    I just checked my seedling trays and discovered germination for both Drosera hirtella var hirtella and Drosera chrysolepis. I was wondering if anyone here has experience with these species? Any tips or hints anyone can offer? I've done extensive research on both of them, I just wanted to see if anyone has any comments from personal experience [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi,

    As far as Drosera chrysolepis goes:

    I personally don't have any experience with this species (I wish) but be carefull to keep this one in perfectly drained conditions, with moist BUT NOT SOGGY soil substrate. The suggested soil substrate for this species would be:

    Sand, shredded sphagnum moss, and shredded tree fern fiber, in equal parts.

    and another thing, disturbing the roots usually kills the plants, so transplant it seldomly and carefully.

    Take good care of this plant, it is a beauty!

    hope it grows well for you and has lots of babies [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    All the seedlings are doing well.. no sign of fungus or algae [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I was wondering if I should leave them all in their flat or if I should transplant them to seperate pots.. and if so.. when? any ideas?

    A good time to transplant is early on, before the plants root deeply. I usually do this after 4 or 5 true leaves have formed.

    Hi purplesundew,

    both species are very rare in cultivation so I would recommend to compare your plants (if they are mature) with some pictures on the web.
    Sadly Drosera seed, especially of rare species, is not always labeled correctly.

    This should be a "true" Drosera hirtella ssp. hirtella grown by Andreas Fleischmann :



    Good luck !

    Hey Purple,

    Another thing to note(and I don't think this will be a problem where you live) is that most of these S. American Drosera are highland, so do not appreciate temps above the 70s.

    Regards,

    Joe
