    Drosera guy mine seemed to just go down hill after feeding ( ironically). I hope some of mine make it but they seem to be suffering

    This species only has 3 roots, and if they are compromised the plant goes to the big bog in the sky. I never had success with this species. I doubt it is a heat issue since this is a true tropical. My guess is that the substrate may have something in it that led to fungal or bacterial attack. My best results came from growing it in almost pure sand with very little organic matter.

    It sounds like the most likely culprit is the peat, too much of it kept too wet. I drenched everything with captan 2 weeks ago and it helped. Keeping things a little more on the dry side, has also helped the D. scorpioides. Too wet and too deep of a pot. Live and learn.

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and The American G. I. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
