    Beginner's Pictorial Guide to Drosera Leaf, Root, and Scape Cutting Chapter #1

    Most Drosera can be easily and quickly propagated by leaf cutting, root cuttings, and flower scape cuttings. (A flower scape is just another words for the developing unfurling flower stalk as it emerges from your plant.) This will give you a mature plant faster than raising one from seed...

    Glanduligera hybrids

    Has anyone tried to hybridize Glanduligera with some hardy Drosera? Say Filiformis or Filiformis x Intermedia? I'm in Zone 7, but would like to put some of these outside. If I can get the trapping behavior worked into a strong hybrid, that'll do nicely.

    Drosera Burmannii- WHERE!?

    Where can I find actual plants, not seeds, of this species? I googled it but have so far been unsuccessful. Also Drosera Glanduligera is especially rare, but I have few hopes of getting it.

    Props and thanks to Paladin69 he sent these in the mail all the way from Australia, for free :). However I've been looking up their care it seems quite intense, as a winter grower is it too late to start growing them? The lowest temperature I can possibly manage in the hot summer months is 70...
