    I grow this plant the same as all my other Drosera, with the only exception being that when the nights do not have a 5-10 degree drop, it is placed in the cool cellar for the duration of summer heat. I have not found it especially sensitive, although many growers state otherwise. Most growers cultivate this in terraria, but mine appears to do just fine without this protocol. The plants needs are the same as any Drosera: clean medium, pure mineral free water, lots of light, good air circulation and humidity at least 40% or higher. The roots want to remain cool, but the day time temps. reach 90F here in summer with no real ill effects. Cool nights with an increase in humidity in the dark hours seems to refresh the plant and brings on good growth: much like highland Nepenthes culture. Evenly warm temperatures with no night time drop are to be avoided. In my experience the majority of Drosera species prefer these conditions.

    I regret that I cannot recommend a commercial source for this species. Like all the Brasillian species, they are rare in cultivation, and seldom available commercially.

    Thanks for the kind comments. Drosera have my heart for sure, but like all plants if you give them what they need, they grow ;-)

    Hi William,

    I am happy to see your plant is flowering, maybe now we'll solve the mystery. I didn't take up on your bet because I sincerely do not know! As I said before, the only SURE way of separating D.graomogolensis from the numerous and variable forms of D.ascendens is by the flowers and seeds. So even with the young scape on your plant, I can not be sure.

    As for pictures of both species, just check out my webpage (http://www.mcef.ep.usp.br/carnivoras/), clicking on Drosera and then searching by species.

    Fernando,

    I have downloaded every photo on your site, and have spent many hours pouring over them. In every instance, I feel I can recognize D. graomogolensis over any other species. Test me! If I am wrong on this one I'll send you my cat! If I'm right, well......you can send me some D. chrysolepsis or D. arenicola seed. (I'll never give up hoping :-)
