|Thanks Tamlin. *I feel like such a dork. *It seems like I do everything wrong with my sundews. *sigh* *Their spatulata so at least they have a chance.[/QUOTE]|
I've noticed spatulata seedlings dont like hot temps... got up to 100 in my greenhouse 3 days ago, it wiped them all out [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
Temperatures get pretty hot in the Indo-Asia area where these plants are native, and I have grown them in absurdedly hot situations. The alpine forms are more sensitive, and it seems to me the lighter the color of the flower, the cooler they prefer things to be, but all should be capable of being grown in a greenhouse. Were there any other factors that might have caused them to die off?
I bet it was sudden heat shock. Also, if I remember correctly, Spec and I have the same strain of plant, or am I confused? Whatever it was with mine, they all wiped out while the other spiecies in the same pot thrived.
There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.
