    Drosophyllum site, Portugal

    ok, i finally got your idea :D I guess you are asking this, because their roots are educting a kind of chemical substance, which is making the other plants disturbed in growing. Well, i didnt experience any difference between them, but all of them seemed a bit less in height which i had...

    As far as i know their populations are very isolated, like this (it was only a 20m circle), and further there was no more plants. Sorry, but what would you like to express with your 2nd question, its not fully clear to me :)

The soil must be fully dry, or can be a little...
