    Paracarnivorous lady in my garden

    Hi everybody! I share with you some pictures of a mystery plant that grows naturally in my garden (as a weed). Viscosity of the substance produced by trichomes is far more efficient than with droseras. I'd like to identify it (at least the family name) Is it, according to you, a...

    My current grow area is 43"x22" and my light is a AgroBrite 2' 4 bulb t5ho. The issue I have now is 2' doesn't cut it anymore with how quickly everything is reproducing. I wanted to upgrade to a 4' but I wanted people's opinions on a 4 bulb or a 6 bulb, with the 6 bulb it totals at 324w and I...

    Opinions on Standing Water for Droseras

    Hello, I recently got back into the hobby after I saw this thread and instantly wanted to create something similar. The only real question that I have is, is it okay to keep the whole tank submerged in about 1-2" of water without any movement for the water. I mostly want to make it a...

    Making lots more Drosera binata 'Marston's Dragon'
