    Unhappy

    Hi,
    I got a 1 inch one at bacps, and there isn't much information about this plant on the internet. I know how to care for it since I asked peter d'amato at cc, but does anyone have any information about the plant? Thanks,

    Matt

    D.neocaledonica originates from New Caledonia. I grow it outdoors as a subtropical without any problems.

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] I heard that that is a REALLY rare plant! Make sure you get some cuttings! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    It is rare, but more difficult to grow Spec. I heard they should be grown very wet, but don't take any Drosera advice from me! I go by hersay for Drosera species! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    This plant is a royal pain. I have attempted probably close to 100 of these blokes and lost 85% of them. The best success I am having is growing them in my crawlspace with my highland plants in LFS that is kept only damp. They strike easy from leaf cuttings but that is about all I can say about them

    I grow them outdoors with low humidity during the day and high humidity at night and on the tray. The plant has recently sent up a flower scape.

    I'm going to attempt growing it with my n. bicalcarata, since its a tropical one and peter d'amato told me too (and it works for him that way). Thanks for the advice everyone [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I got three plantlets from seed 6 months ago and they are all staying very small (3 mm) always with 3 or 4 leaves. I think they need highland temps and my temps are too high for them (between 20C and 30C).
