    crnivorkid, try them again. this pic is of the plants on my second try at the species. i killed off the first ones. about the only group of plants that i have not lost a single one is the terrestrial and lithophytic Utrics. ive killed several Drosera and Pings and Neps and such. its normal to kill some plants, more experiance just means you know why they died [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    How do you guys kill D. scorpioides ?? The gemmae are tuff as nails and will sprout from half squashed/dead gemmae! OK, I'm feeling very forgiving so I'll let you try some more if your game. **Translation: Bloody plants are still producing gemmae!! Please take some.**

    Your D. scorpiodes are large enough to digest food with blood?

    You won't believe the difference growing these beauties outdoors will have! All the pygmies really color up outside, like little gems. Wow, this is late in the season to be getting D. scorpioides gemmae! The only species I have that makes gemmae outside of winter is D. plaeacea ssp. trichocaulis which usually has gemmae on the summer solistice. They do fine in anything above 50% humidity, provided there isn't a blast furnace of dry air hitting them. My plants are definitely outdoor plants. I've also found that the plants themselves when brought inside can etiolate significntly over the winter months (Oct-Apr here)and when put outside in the spring will return to their typical form within the season. My plants were so stretched out I never expected them to survive, but these are probably the toughest CP on the planet despite their size.

    Your telling me!! Last year they at least let up for the summer. This year I have had several plants at any one time producing gemmae since back in November. I suspect it is stress induced by the aphids I have been battling on all my sundews this past winter. I have some Orthenex now and if the nice weather holds through the weekend, my entire collection is going outside for a nice misting. That aught to show them plant hopping, leaf sucking buggers what for!
