    Hi guys. Im new at this. I just bought my first plant VFT on Monday. I found this site VERY useful and helpful with everyone helping each other. now my quesiton is.. I found a picture of the Sundew Binata. I LOVE it a lot. Can I put this plant with my VFT? I have the vft in a 2 1/2 gal tank right now. and where can I get the SUndew Binata? Would anyone happen to have donations for me? Thanks everyone for your help!

    Hey guy

    Welcome to the forums! I dont see any problems with that for you're climate.
    Both plants require dormancy so would make good pot-mates. I even have a few D. Capensis[Edit: corrected to read, D. capensis], and D. Adelae's[Edit: corrected to read, D. adelae there are no apostrophies or extra "s" endings on species names] in with my VFTs some examples

    PM me you're details and I will send you a D. Binata[Edit: corrected to read, D. binata] Got a few pots overgrown.

    Hey ZAK

    Did your N. x miranda come from Kroger?

    Do you grow it outside year-round?

    Actually I bought it here at PFT during the sale. There was a shortage before I got mine so I ended up waiting 2 Mo. for it. Phil made it right though, he sent me two large Mirandas in a pot. I don't have a photo of my Coccinea, but I bought that one at Krogers for something stupid like $16 It has two very mature plants with about 5 small rosetts in the center.

    I usually bring them in on cold nights. I had them growing under a Pecan tree but I don't live there any more. Now they sit under a West facing eve. Not the best place fot them I think. But I'll be moving again soon.

    We've got to get together sometime. Maybe with Mike at Jessie H. Jones Sometime soon. I'd love to see how his greenhouse is doing.

    D. binata does not require a dormancy, does it? I thought it was optional...

    Cheers,

    Joe

    PS ZAK, love your quote from "The Princess Bride."

    D. Binata[Edit: corrected to read, D. binata, the second part of a species name is always written in lower case] will do fine with or without a dormancy. Seeing how J83 wants to incorporate this into a pot of VFT's I figure it will get one.

    Thanks on the quote. I have two young daughters and they love that...... AWWW who am I kidding I LOVE that show. Saw it at the movies when it first came out. Just ahhhh... don't tell anyone [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    my D. binata does fine without a true dormancy but it did look kind of ratty for a few months this winter when it decided to take a break, a sorta pseudo-dormancy. it kicked it back into high gear 3 weeks or so ago and looks good again

    Remember that D. binata clones range from near alpine to tropical climates. I have found that some of my clones never go completely dormant even at temps near freezing while other clones die back to the roots as soon as the photoperiod shortens sufficiently, irrespective of continued warm temps. I have not tried keeping these under artificially extended long photoperiod, however.
