    A jardiniere is a large, undrained flower pot...usually rather rounded and made of glazed pottery but not always. It is a two-piece set with the jardiniere pot and a pedestal base upon which the pot sits. "Jardin" is French for "garden" and "jardiniere" means "female gardener". You often can find the pots by themselves as the bases freqently got broken.

    Congrats! I'm still hoping to get my last two D. burmanni to flower. Come on little plants!

    Beautiful plants Tamlin, I am indeed very envious. What is the maximum temperature that your plants reach in your conditions? Things are a little hot down here at the moment and I'm trying to work out a method of keeping my plants cool in the greenhouse whilst at the same time supplying them with enough light. I wish I had some sort of indoor setup in which to grow these great plants.

    Sean.

    Hi Sean,

    Maximum temps were about 85F: after this I put the plants into the cool cellar for the duration: good thing since the heat spell that claimed my Heliamphora and U. quelchii would likely have taken the Brazilian Drosera as well. I think that they can take the heat, provided that there is a significant night time drop in temperature along with a rise in relative humidity. Of all the Brazilian species I grow, this one seemed the least affected by heat.

    BTW, I did not evolve this growing protocol. Our own Pinguiculaman taught me this method with the D. regia, and I applied it to this species. Also note that the redwood "mulch" is actually bark. I bet that euculyptus bark would work too.

    Well, since you all like the plant, here is another shot of a more overview quality:



    You can see the quarter coin for a sense of scale. The quartz cluster probably has something to do with organizing the plants aura or something equally as mystical ;-)

    So, S. American Drosera are holistic, lol?
    Redwood bark? Is that the same as orchid bark, or am I confusing confiers?

    Regards,

    Joe
