    Yes indeed! This is what happens if you give them lots of room, lots of water, and lots of light. I had one single crown of Drosera binata var. multifada produce a pot like this in 2 seasons worth of growth, with plants growing out of the drainage holes as well. It is well worth experimenting with to see if you can grow the plant outdoors in your climate. It really is an outdoor sort of plant. I can't give mine too much light or water outdoors. Here it does fine at 40% relative humidity. The plants are often black with captured prey, and are awesome to behold when they are large and dense like this. I wish I had a GH! I would try to grow this plant in a hanging ball of LFS kept on the wet side. I bet in 2 seasons the plants would be growing from all points of the sphere, and what a sight that would be!

    I have an idea, why don't you cut some 2 inch holes in the side of the pots? it would be cool not to see the pot and only a big, hairy, ball of dictonoma! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    Tim,

    I don't have a greenhouse. I grow all my plants in the naked outdoors in the warmer months.
