    Any special tips on growing this plant? I've had my little plant for a month now, it's pretty healthy but not up to my standards as with the rest of my sundews... It's growing well, but I just want it to look like the pics on the net.
    Any special care? Like what type of medium, temps, lighting, ect... So far I just have it growing along with my outdoor sundew colection like D. burmannii, D. capensis, D. spatulata,...
    So far its pretty easy growing,why isn't the plant all to popular?

    Soil: 3 parts peat to 1 part sand
    Light:Shade from direct sunlight
    Water:tray method
    Temps:65-85 degrees works well for me
    Humididy-55-70% works best

    Hope this helps

    I got that part down, but is there any special treatment? Because according to all other info on the net it sounds like its a capensis or something...

    For me Drosera regia had always been an impossible to keep plant. Over the years I have germinated scores of them. They always expired before getting larger than 1/4 inch tall. I also have tried to grow 3 other clones. They hang on for a short time -- and then they too expire. One exception has been a clone I registered as Drosera regia 'Big Easy'. I obtained this clone in a 3 inch pot with about 2 inch high leaves. Since then I have propagated more than 500 plants from this one initial plant (a few by leaf cuttings in water, most by root cuttings). Very few plants have ever been lost once they start growing their own root systems.

    I finally got around to trying some outside. Details later.

    Ok, that's the info I was looking for. Thanks, do you know why they tend to die? Mine is just a small plant with two inch leaves.

    I have never had luck with seedlings either. They are much easier to grow for me once they reach a certain size ~2in. I have also tried growing them outdoors in low humidity. They remained under 4in in height...
