    Nice Dustin! Beautiful photos too.

    I miss my slackii. I had one that had gotten about 50-cent piece size...a real beauty. All of sudden it just up and died after thriving. I was so upset.

    One day I'll have another and try again.

    Phil (aka Philcula) has always had some of the finest plants I ever saw at many a BACPS meeting. And a very knowledgable and friendly man. Definitely knows what he is about. Always good to see.

    I wonder why the top one is going to flower for me. Jan (from CPUK) asked me about it and I said, the only specific odd thing I did to it was freeze it to 15F (-9C) and repot frequently...

    Greetings,

    Drosera slackii is my favorite sundew. Yours are very beautiful. I wouldn't mind seeing a photo of the flowers.

    I found this photo on the web, taken at Cali. Carnivores. I love the tall stems. http://www.iscweb.com/personal/dunno...D.slackii4.jpg

    Gorgeous, Dustin!
    This is one that has been out of my collection for some time. Mine used to do the stem thing, but they would crawl along the soil surface, instead of standing straight up.
    The original name of the plant before it was given it's latin name was Drosera "Highland Red," so maybe they like a brief cold snap(hence the flowering)?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Yes indeed, this is a highland species. It really dislikes hot nights. PAK, hang in there, the plant will probably return from the roots in time. Just keep it moist and be patient.
