    Thanks to PinguiculaMan and a wonderful trade I can add this little gem. This Lil guy just arrived in the mail today so while small now I have great expectations for this royal beauty.

    Here's Drosera regia



    Cheers,

    Drosera anglica 'Soldotna, AK'


    Drosera anglica 'Kuai, HI'


    Drosera intermedia 'Mt. Roraima, Venezuela'

    The last one actually appears pink in the right lighting conditions. The closest I could get to the true color with an image so far is this:

    Joe,

    That rotundifolia looks very healthy, considering it appears to be in peat/sand. It is usually the "live sphagnum" plant of the North, right?
    The only rotundifolia I have is from Irian Jaya, though I have not taken it out of the flask yet, lol. I guess I'm scared of killing it.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Wow...
    I have seen many Drosera photos... but those photos, especially that first one (the anglica), are outstanding. There is just some obscure quality to them -they seem to almost capture a bit of personality. I can't pit my finger on it. They just look great. I normally don't do these "picture praise" posts...

    Joe,
    I grow Drosera rotundifolia in both Sphagnum and sand/peat because the very first wild Drosera rotundifolia I ever saw were growing in sand/peat and they looked very nice and healthy. The area was the north shore of lake Michigan from the upper peninsula and was near lake Manistique. They were growing on a sand dune under some pine trees where pine needles and fresh rabbit dung was all over them. They looked very much like these ones do now.

    And, of course, I also saw a great many of them growing on the surface of deep Sphagnum beds on the shore of lake Manistique and many other locations since then I have seen them growing in various substrates including the surface of exposed peat and growing out of dead logs which were floating in water.

    Question

    Here's some pictures I took this morning. Joseph, my schizandra has came out of its funk. I kept the rotting leaves pruned back and gave it overheat watering weekly. I did give one of the leaves some powdered blood worms, and there was no negative impact as far as I can tell. enjoy,

    Nice photos Homer! I like the mix of utrics with the drosera. Very pretty.

    They are all beautiful pics.
