    Longer lived Sundew

    Repotting seems to help most of the time. Perhaps the peat moss was breaking down or algae/bacteria growth. Sometimes I find the inside walls of the pot are slime with algae.

    Longer lived Sundew

    I've got D. regia and D. venusta that are at least 12 years old. When repotting I trim off all the dead leaves and bury the stem up to live leaves.

    Mold in media

    I'm not sure that is actually Sphagnum moss. It doesn't look right to me. However, LFS when first re-wet often blooms with fungus/mold that will go away on it's own once the anti-fungal properties of the moss kicks in. A couple of weeks usually. If not you can treat it with Physan 20 or dilute...

    Drosera Regia Stressed?

    If it is making dew than it is probably doing fine. A period of acclimation is to be expected. Having no idea of where abouts you are growing leaves us no clue to what your climate may be like. Petiolaris in general like it warm and humid. By warm you're probably looking at from the 80s to low...

    This Stuff Will Kill You

    So here I am watching "Deadman's Curve" a 1978 bio-pic about the 60's Rock legend duo Jan and Dean. I couldn't help notice what those bags were in the back of the truck in the scene dramatizing Jan Barry's near fatal traffic accident. Be careful around that stuff.

    Drosera Regia Issues

    My mistake, those should be Clone R1. Got Clone C on my mind because I put one up in the auction.

    Drosera Regia Issues

    You can remove the media in one piece from the pot. Split the mass between the two plants without disturbing the roots then put the one in a deeper pot and cover the bare stem. Like I said, D. regia is more robust than people give it credit for. Here's the smaller Clone R1 which was repotted...

    Drosera Regia Issues

    Yes, it looks to me like the plants lacked light for a period in there growth. I've seen this happen many times when repotting Drosera that has think roots and tends to sprout off shoots. What happens is the offshoot may start inches below the surface and has to grow a long stem to reach the...

    PAID (The Griffin $21) (Drosera hamilonii - 2 different clones

    Drosera hamiltonii Attractive and super easy to grow. Propagates prolifically from root offshoots on its own. Getting it to flower is a challenge. On top of that the flowers are self-incompatible meaning you need genetically different plants in order to produce seed. Years ago I managed to find...

    PAID (Ghost_Council $20) regia clone C

    Drosera regia clone C What can you say about Drosera regia? Give it a cool (above frost) winters and plenty of room for the roots and it should grow well for you. The clone C designation seems to have come out of the Atlanta Botonical Gardens possibly from Henning Von Schmeling (of Dionaea B52...
