    I know a bit about plant genetics (were talking about it this month in highshool)
    Um if i remember right, some plants cant be selfed because the seedlings would be identicle as the parents. With cross- polination you get variation! If the habitat changes but the plant does'nt, how will it survive?

    Its a clever survival tactic really. Its why pigmies flower too!

    Uhhh,
    I think!
    that makes no logic

    Pinguiculaman,

    I think you have rooting hormone in your blood! You seem to have the magic touch. I aspire to one day to be Droseraman, Nepman or something, right now I'm just man who does about average with everthing carnivorous. It just doesn't sound as cool!

    Good job.

    Now if I can only figure out how to get them to grow as well as I can propagate them.
    That is very true for me too... It is super easy to propagate these plants, but I find it more challenging to keep a plant growing well rather than to propagate it.

    example

    I just grow mine outdoors all year round. They haven't flowered yet after four years but they keep clumping. They apparently need winter temperatures in the low 40sF to flower. They apparently are not self-compatible so you probably need genetically different plants to get seed.

    They can be found growing with Cephalotus follicularis so if you can grow Cephalotus you should be able to grow these. Drosera hamiltonii do not seem to be very picky about substrate, pure peat moss seems to work as well as the standard CP mixes (50/50 sand-perlite/peat moss). They'll probably grow fine in pure sand. And they don't mind standing water.

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
