    PNW Drosophyllum germinating outside in cool temps and low light

    I was moving plants around outside last Saturday in preparation for freezing weather coming our way when I discovered Drosophyllum seedlings had very recently sprouted in a couple gallon nursery pots despite some pretty cold temps here recently (low 40’s day/low 30’s overnight). The media is...

    Drosophyllum lusitanicum: Tissue Culture Follow-Along

    Hey guys, I've been doing a lot of sterile culture work lately, and thought it might be fun to share some of the projects with you guys, as they unfold. If there's enough interest, I'll try to do some more of these "Follow-Along" threads for various species. So lets get started, shall we...

    Drosophyllum seedlings

    Last year I threw a handful of untreated/unscarified Drosophyllum seed under the mass of dead leaves from a droso plant that had expired the year before and then I torched the whole thing. I left the pot sit outside and this spring this is what popped up in that pot. I don't know if the...

    Volunteer Drosophyllum sprout in the bog

    I was watering the bog today and look what I found. If I am not mistaken, this is a Drosophyllum sprout! I swear this is not a purposeful sowing, must have been a seed that stuck to my hand when I was collecting droso seed a while back from a droso pot that is located close to the bog. The big...

    When to let my Droso babies dry out for the summer?

    Apologies in advance if this has been covered before. I did search the forum first. I promise :-). I successfully germinated Drosophyllum lusitanicum early this year (thanks again, Mike W. for the seeds), and the plants have transitioned nicely from their seedling peat pots to large clay pots...

    I have 3 drosos that have flowered for me and it looks like I will be getting a lot of seed. Now I have seen and read of a lot of different mixes and I am going to try as many as possible to see which one is the best (for me at least!). So please post your mix here as I am very keen to see them...

    Drosophyllum problems... what is wrong with it?!

    For the past couple months, my previous healthy 2 yo droso has gone from awesome, to dieing back from a particular spot on the plant.. Totally healthy, dew covered leaves are turning black and dropping, and new leaves are growing in a weird curly, unhealthy looking pattern from the side.. It...

    :-D I have fresh Drosphyllum seed from my plants and looking to trade for a mature S. leucophylla, or leucophylla var. alba, or S. Hurricane Creek White, or division of such (I already have plenty of S. Tarnok). Can add D. filiformis, D. Capensis, and D. intermedia plants in with the droso...

    Strange(?) drosophyllum growth

    Over the summer I purchased a Drosophyllum seedling and placed it in my large, sunny, south-facing window. Well, apparently it wasn't sunny enough because it showed severe etiolation, growing long and sparse with rather short leaves (see photo). The strange thing is that it started to bloom...

    Drosophyllum in winter photo...

    I just came across this photo, figured i'd share it for those who are scared about their droso living with rain/winter weather... I personally wouldn't try this with a plant under a year old, but i've heard of people doing this with adult plants.. And now found a photo..

    New baby drosophyllum all potted up. Some questions as well.

    I picked up a baby Droso a couple weeks ago from the local CP nursery... SO STOKED to finally have one of these! :laaa: It just kind of sucks that it had to be at the END of the season where I could safely keep it outside. :headwall: For substrate I used pumice, rinsed black lava rock, rinsed...

    Drosophyllum by night...

    Hello All, Being cursed as an "early bird" and usually up with coffee in hand before sunrise, I couldn't resist snapping a few photos of one of my Drosophyllum right before sunrise... The greenhouse was steamy and humid with the occasional dripping sound from condensation to break the silence...
