    Hi, are you a experienced grower of D. indica? I've ran across information about these plants possibly not liking to grow next to other D. indica plants. Perhaps some chemical thing in the soil that kills other plants. I'm asking if you have ran into this? Or do yours grow fine in the same pot? Please include any growing conditions you provide (if you can) or other specific tips.
    I got my seed from the ICPS seed bank and they are now seedlings with 2 trap leaves. So, now is about the time to transplant. If it be one per pot.... or 4....
    They have location data of "Narrabri, NSW" if that helps at all...
    Thanks!
    Andrew

    Andrew, how long did the take to germinate. Mine have been in for approximately five to six weeks and nothing is showing yet.

    Thanks

    This one is funny Copper. I have had seed sit for 6 months before it decided to spark. It likes warmth I think since it wasn't until summer that it germinated although it was sown late in the previous fall. Hang in there!

    I can tell you that Narrabri in NSW certainly is not a tropical location. Actually, it barely scrapes into the subtropical range. Therefore, this form should be able to cope with temps slightly lower than those of the more tropical forms.

    This form could only be a summer grower and would possibly, occasionally experience quite low nighttime temps in Narrabri as it is an inland town.

    I grow mine in a heated tank with high humidity. I'm sure they would appreciate lower humidity but I am unable to provide this for them. I grow many plants per pot and have never had any problems. I think that it is a bit of a myth that they can't grow side by side. I've heard the same about Drosophyllum and this is also not true.

    Copper: took less than a week.

    Seandew: Thanks so much for th local information and squashing the "can't grow side by side"myth.

    Anyone else have a view on this?
    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Richard Davion did some experiments some years back and found that indica will not germinate below 26 C. You got to keep the seeds warm.

    I am trying to germinate them in an enclosed seed tray, under four florescent. The temp is above 70 degrees. Should I get them warmer?
