    Hi,

    I don't have any sundews... yet. They do however have my interest. I have been lurking on this topic for a few weeks, now it's time to ask the question.

    What do you like most about them? What draws you too them over other CPs (if anything)? I want to hear about the plants from the people who love them.

    I am extending an open invitation for you to brag, I want to hear it, tell me everything about your dews (or the ones you wish you had) whatever you want to tell me about them I want to hear.

    Ready? Go!
    I typo, therefore I edit.

    Take a look at the picture of Drosera capillaris that PinguiculaMan posted in another thread. It answers that question better than words possibly could.

But I all have to say is the few sundews I do have are healthy as of today...tomorrow is a different day.

    Many things:

    - They are always the same, yet constantly changing
    - They sparkle
    - They eat where you can watch the entire process, for the most part
    - Many of them are easy to keep
    - Many can be grown from seed quickly and easily
    - Many can be quickly propagated vegetively

    They are supurb! not too big and not too small, and there are alot of different kinds to suit your needs. And they look great with other CP's, but even better with other dews, like my 3 sisters's tank with: D.profilera, adelae, and schizandra. Also, if you want to see a kick-butt dew, check out D.regia, marston-dragon, or slackii.

    If you havnt already, go to Tamlins webpage, those plants give you reason enough to love this genus! That is my answer to why I like them... great looking little plants!
