    LOL

    Here's a new picture that Bob will not have on his site yet. I just took earlier tonight and posted just now.
    Not the greatest picture. Potted in a 8" pot.



    I probably should not say that mine is in an alkaline mix of perlite, play sand, and vermiculite. I truely have no idea at what pH it is at. I thought that all of these materials were alkaline in nature. Doing a quick search I can find pH info of perlite and vermiculite, which can be either alkaline of acidic:

    While I'm at it, I posted this one not all that long ago.



    I grow this plant in a south facing sliding glass door.

    I too use sand, perlite, and vermiculite. I reccamend starting the plant off in peat pots placed in a controlled enviroment. Transplanting could be fatal to the plant from what I heard. Well good luck. This is probably the most rewarding species to grow once you get the plant estabalished.

    I have transplanted 4-5in diameter plants from styrofoam pots(3in diameter drinking cups) to clay pots. I peeled off the styrofoam being careful not to damage the roots pushing against the side and bottom of the pot. I do the same with Byblis.
    During the summer, one of my 12in+ diameter Drosophyllum was completely uprooted when the clay pot tipped over. I repotted the plant and placed it in a shaded area until it started producing new growth, then slowly adjusted the plant to full sun. It took over a month before the plant looked like before.
