    Making space - S. x. moorei "Leah Wilkerson"

    Hey Scotty, Very happy to hear that you just GAVE AWAY such a potentially valuable specimen, thereby demonstrating an immunity to the hypnocratic methodology used to separate egoplantonomics from simple appreciation and sharing of the beauty. You have my respect, good sir! LOL, a plant is...

    Hi Andrew, I just noticed all my photo's in the TF Gallery are listed as "guest" and I'd like to correct that. Is there some way I can do that? Thanks! wm

    How big is yours?

    A quick note on Drosera capensis "red Form": excessive UV does not profit the growth in this form...it encourages deep coloration at the expense of overall size.

    My two favorite dews

    D. schizandra photos

    Very nice advice Brian! Considering the woodland nature of this species, the loose medium makes a lot of sense. I had the best results in a similar medium as yours, although I added some leaf mould. Mine did best in larger pots and mine were kept wetter so that there would be a good...

    Lots of Sundew Pics from this year part 1- D. brevifolia, D. capillaris, D. regia DUW

    Very happy plants, thanks for sharing! You know, Drosera brevifolia is soooo sensitive to fungal problems, it's always refreshing to see such perfect rosettes.
