    Thumbs up

    D. regia 'Big Easy' would be a nice addition to your collection.

    Wow! I love the looks of Drosera regia 'Big Easy', D. paradoxa and D. venusta, but how in the world do I find them? California Carnivores sells the D. venusta, but can any of you point me in the right direction for the other two?

    The D. filiformis is also intriguing--and widely available--but I had never considered it before since it is always described as "temperate," same as D. rotundifolia.

    Thanks again,
    Corey

    I think D. filiformis has an easy dormancy, or that's what I hear. I'm not sure if that means they form a resting bud or what, but I think they'll do OK with less water and shorter days in the winter. I understand they get pretty tall, over a foot, but if you've got a D. dichotoma then you probably have enough vertical clearance. I understand that Sarracenia NW will have them in stock shortly - I bought a bunch of D. filiformis seed from them this winter.

    I just sent one from PA to California, two weeks ago. This time I sent more of the media with it, in addition to being wrapped in a moist paper towel - AND some styrofoam peanuts for padding. This time it fared well, on it's faive day (including the weekend) journey.
