    Talking



    these are some sundew that i saw on my trip in Alaska. these are next to a trail in Cordova, Alaska. there are a couple medow/boggy areas that are just full of them. Cordova is a rainforest area that receives about 150 inches of percipation a year, most of it rain.

    i just thought it was cool. since i didnt even realize cps could grow that far north.

    Most the dews I've seen up here are all that color, especially this time of year. And yes, Alaska has CP's.. 3 species of Utric, 2 species of Ping, and 2 Drosera [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    sweet I wish I had a dew that color. they must get like 22 hours of sun or somthing up there. I wonder what species are that bright that I can have in cultivation.

    As to the color, if you grow under flourescents and keep the plants within a few inches of the tubes most of them get very good coloration.
