    Well a friend of mine gave me too much D. capensis which i didn't really care for to tell you the truth. Well i didn't want to pot them and go through that whole ordeal, plus some had extremely long roots. So i got a 5.5 x 5.5 , 4 inch high plastic clear container (my mom almost killed me) and filled it up with water. Well, i did this just thinking they would stay hydrated, but i was basically sacrificing them. Ironically, they are growing like crazy! They have more dew (and are a deeper green) than the capensis i have in my growchamber.. which are actually in soil! Despite the cold and dry conditions, they are doing awesome. They are 11 of them and i am thinking about separating them into a nicer looking container and placing them around the house.

    I tried to kill em and look what happens...

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Ah, a page taken right out of Pinguiculaman! I WOULD suggest re-introducing soil, though.

    They are doing great, they look like they love it. If their conditions decline, i sure will. I doubt it will though, they look awesome and growing like mad.

    Try finding a way to aerate the water, simulating a hydroponic system. Maybe you might see differences? I don't know myself!

    How do you keep the D. capensis from capsising? I'd think it might be top heavy...
