    What does pan climatic mean? Does it mean it can go dormant and not in different climates?

    The Drosera intermedia I have grown from Florida produced a hibernacula and went dormant on schedule. In the fall give the plants a normal daylength and if they require dormancy the hibernacula will form without any action on your part. I believe all the Florida forms are temperate species.

    D. intermedia 'Cuba' is a tropical form (although in my collection it also occasionally reverts to dormancy, never have figured that out) which needs no special care. Typical tropical culture, 50/50 sand/peat, 40% humidity and above, much light. It likes wet conditions and mine are grown with water standing at the base of the plants with good effect. There is no need for stratification.

    Now to answer your Qs: oh Tamlin already did [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    I think 30*C or over would be optimum temp (I dunno what that is in *F, go figure that out yeself!) like in the tropicals we have the best natural conditions, man I feel so good now! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the pan-climatic stuff, and go read Tamlin's article about sowing seed, I use that for most of mine

    (Psst! Go here!)
    And read whateva article you can find there if you got the time, its well worth the read!

    Tamlin, did you just add another article on havesting, on seeing that hlp was needed in that area? You did didn't you. It can't have been conincidence, the timing's great! Thanks so much...Woohoo! Now let see, my little capillaris pods, uhm...
