    I have found D. adelae to be quite problematic.

    Welcome to the formus !!
    Another good one to consider is D. tokaiensis (also known as D. spatulata "Kansai")
    It is a natural hypbrid of D. rotundifolia and D. spatulata and seems to exhibit the good tendencies of both- no dormancy, quite cold resistant, don't seem too picky about light (I've had a huge forest of them growing on my windowsill all winter, and I live in the Great White North)
    If I can get them to flower I will be overrun with seeds, so keep an eye on the Trading post as I will likely have hordes of them in not too long
    Happy Growing!!

    Heres an article on careing for Drosera species that I wrote. I grouped the genus up into 4 sections, Temperate, Tropical/Subtropical, etc. At the end of each group, I give a few examples of easier to care species. Hope that helps. Zongyi
    P.S. pm me any critisims, like spelling errors, cultivation suggestions, etc.

    ill throw my vote in for D. capensis as well. its an extreamly easy one to find and as far as im concerned few Drosera look better than a good sized well grown "typical" capensis.
