    Anyone growing drosera magnifica?

    I'm trying to grow them. They arrived, potted them up in the best sphagnum I had... and then a whole lot of nothing happening for 2 weeks. Some leaves are drying, but looks like the usual slight die back after out of TC, shipping, new climate, etc. But no freaking idea how to grow these. There is no information that I could find on growing conditions and so on, or even any details of the climate on that slope where they grow naturally, though the altitude implies they may appreciate cooler nights. They do seem happier with our warmer climate than the picky regia, which promptly dies on me, no matter what. Happier, as in not died immediately.

    Anyone know what they want? Dry side to soggy? Direct sun/partial? Preferred temps? Favorite music? Anything? I'm making things up as I go along, but so far they haven't resumed growth, though the growing tips look fine.

    Hmm, I didnt think that they were possible to obtain yet.. they were discovered back in 2015 though so I guess 3 years is more than enough to grow some and sell them... Do you have any pictures? I would love to see them!

    Mine arrived only one week ago.
    I'm growing it in a 50/50 peatmoss/perlite mix.
    It sits in a tray with 1/8 inch (3mm) water.
    The pot is sitting on my basement floor in the coolest place I can find.
    Temperatures run from 65 to 70 degrees.
    I have it domed until it recovers from shipping and starts producing dew.
    Lighting is Daylight LED synchronized to local dawn and dusk.

    The advice I was given was, "Grow it like a capensis, just a little bit cooler."

    If it does perk up and become happy, I will most likely post an update.

    Good growing,
    Mike

    I just got my order yesterday. They're looking a bit rough but hopefully they'll recover.

    Some advice I was given by someone who was an early recipient of seeds and has been growing for quite a while:
    - Highland temperatures are ideal. Avoid temps above 80F (27-28C)
    - Use very well-draining soil, high proportions of inert material
    - Do not use a water tray. Keep the soil only moist.
    - Leaf, stem, and root cuttings all seem to work. Floating in water is the best method.

    All the magnifica you'll see around are imports from BCP or people reselling those imports for now.
