    NICE PICS! Are Drosophyllum easy to grow? I plan on getting one someday and I was wondering how to grow this plant successfully as I think it is a really neat plant in my opinion.

    Thanks, Dewy. I've grown the Drosophyllum on a South-facing windowsill un the UK since last Summer with no problems. I think they need a lot of sun and not too much water. They also are reported to always die of repotted. Mine's Slack-potted in a mix of sand, peat & John Innes typed compost.

    Very nice. How much sun do your D. prolifera and D. adelea get? Mine get bright light and about 2 hours=3 hours sun

    Tre,

    My Queensland Drosera currently get about 13 hours light from three UV growlights. They are about a foot away from the lights near the front of the tank, where there is less light anyway. Such light levels are no good for other Drosera that I grow, but suits these plants fine.

    Unhappy

    This is more of a general question, how do you water pygmy dew?
    I use a squirt bottle but the mist takes the dew off, if I just pour in the water it moves the media around to much for my young pygmys. Does anyone have a gentle way of watering them?

    Thanks
    Chris

    by the way I love the bed of pygmys. coolest thing ever.
    Im a terible speeler, but I are collage stodint.

    Chris,

    Most growers stand their pygmies in a tray of soft water (unless they have the more difficult ones prone to summer dormancy). This method ensures that they do not dry out and avoids removing their dew whilst watering.
