    I haven't had that problem. It is growing happily and producing sizeable leaves as it is growing larger. It doesn't even seem to be thinking about dying. It has been a little harder than D. capensis and D. spatulata for me, but not overly hard. It may be just the behavior of one plant. (some Nepenthes flower all the time until they die of exhaustion, some flower once in their lives, something like that.)



    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Thanks everyone! I wrote down the ones to look for, and am going to check out the sites you recommended, plus I'll order The Savage Garden. You have been more helpful than you know! Thanks for being so nice to a newbie.

    Welcome to the forums Seaecho. I like your name. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I'm glad you are finding favor with drosera. They are my favorites and you'll find yourself getting hooked. Nothing like that sparkly diamond dew. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I think everyone has covered the relatively easy ones. If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    I have been growing Drosera adelae for a very long time. Some of my Drosera adelae have, from time to time, displayed the cyclical decline frequently mentioned in literature and on this forum. I must report that every time this has happened with my own Drosera adelae, close examination has revealed that the most likely cause has been spider mites. Since the plants in decline all showed heavy infestations of this obnoxious pest. This determination was made since the plants recovered quickly, after being treated to eliminate the mites.

    very interesting. i didnt notice spidermites on mine when it kealed over but i didnt think to look either. there was high enough localized humidity that they didnt even dawn on me as a cause. i shoulda looked closer. either way as i have stated in other threads: very few Drosera can beat the look of a really well grown D. capensis. i also like spatulata although i am only growing one of the many types at the moment. mine is a lil jewel from Hong Kong which several other ppl on this forum also have and i predict seeds on the trade forums within the next few months as one of mine is about to flower so other ppls should be getting close to or are already at blooming size. it seems i predicted the opening date of the flower about a week or so short as it should open this weekend and i figured it would be last weekend.

    TIP: Lowe's usually sells Drosera adelae, and you won't have to struggle to save those plants if you get them at the right time, right after they are stocked, before evil Lowe's employees get the chance to bomb them with tap water, fertilizer and no sunlight.
