    The ones I'm going to send have been growing in my terrium well. They are the only ones left in there. I had a pot of the same (same leaf cutting) covered in 5in. of snow (yes Galveston Co. received 6 to 12 in of snow Christmas eve) in Dec. al the leaves turned black for ovious reasons but It's going crazy now.
    I always suspect everything could be a trap... thats why I'm still alive

    Wow... seems like if these plants go bad, they could grow back.. I guess this is the same for all plants.

    Drosera binata is indestructable. It will take high temperatures, low humidity, full blazing sun, cold, if you accidently let it dry out for a couple days it will rebound from the roots (dont ask me why I know that last part so well lol).

    I got a HUGE bag of cuttings of D. binata at New Years that I didnt have enough space to pot, what was left sat in that plastic bag for two and a half months, unpotted, unwatered, totally ignored and left for dead. Not only did they not die, they had new leaves opening inside the bag.

    If there is a way to kill this plant, I dont know it.. lol

    Good luck

    Not only will they rebound from the roots if you let them dry
    out, the will grow from the roots out of the drainage holes in the bottom of the pots.....er....or....so....I was told. *gives quick shifty looks and darts back into main thread selection*
