    N. sanguinea pics

    (Side Note: I'm 6 foot tall and my hands are HUGE! So this gives you an idea of the size) This is pics of my new plant. These are still babies    so I can't wait to see how much bigger they get. If you can't tell on the second pic, the ruler says 8.5 inches.

    Is this combination possable?

    My Drosera capensis and my Dionaea "Clumping" are both flowering at about the same time. What would happen if I rubbed both of the flowers together? What's the end result?

    AH! Flower!

    Ok, I know it's not all that benifissial to Dionaea's when they flower, I know Pings like to flower and it's ok to let them, what about droseras'? My Drosera capensis is flowering and I don't want it to take away from the life of the plant or kill it. Does flowering do any harm to droseras?
