My D. hartmeyerorum is getting ready to open its flowers any day now.
As soon as I saw the scape appear, I started feeding it a little heavier.

Today I deflasked a new Drosera hartmeyerorum. This is my second attempt at getting this species out of Tissue Culture. I bought this one from a different source. It has definite root nubs on the bottom, not just a callus.
This time I sterilized my growing medium. I cooked a 2:1 Sand:Peat mix...
Deflasking Drosera hartmeyerorum, A followup
Two weeks ago I posted about removing Drosera hartmeyerorum from a Tissue Culture flask and potting it up into some live Sphagnum on top of a standard Drosera Peat/Sand mix.
Anyway here is a followup report. It was an unmitigated egregious failure...
Deflasking Tissue Cultured Drosera hartmeyerorum
I ordered a Drosera hartmeyerorum plant. It came in a Tissue Culture flask. This is how I deflasked it and introduced it to the real world. This is only my second attempt at transferring a TC Drosera into a pot and regular growing conditions. If...
I tried to germinate CP seeds in test tubes filled with distilled water, using a magnifying glass to easily see when they started to germinate and sprout a root and leaves. I tried tropical and subtropical species, mostly Drosera. I wrote that up a few months ago as CP Water Germination...
CP Water Germination Experiment
Phase 1 tropical & subtropical species, mostly Drosera
When I decided to restart my CP collection I had some seeds stored in my refrigerator for up to 17 years. Some were from the ICPS seedbank and some were from my old collection in the mid to...

After a long pause growing plants I recently started againin January 2016. Hopefully the spring will allow me to ramp up slowly and see what species I can grow outside without much trouble.
- D. californica
- D. muscipula typical form
- D. muscipula (sprouted)...
One of my pots of D. burmannii "Green" has suddenly started to look irritated, and I can't pinpoint exactly why. Nothing has changed about its conditions for several months - 75F day temps, 60F night, growing in the same tank as my other subtropical 'dews (D. sessilifolia, other forms of D...
Due to the generosity of a certain burpy, Hawaiian and the productivity of my D. hart., I have an obscene amount of N. ventricosa & D. hartmeyerorum seeds on my hands. Winners will receive more venticosa seeds than the ordinary bloke will likely ever need, and some D. hartmeyerorum seeds...
Information I've found on Drosera indica and Drosera hartmeyerorum is either scattered, outdated or contradicting. Would someone kindly post solid links, or give a quick type-up, about growing these species from seed to mature plants?
I was about to message a couple members about this, but I...
Or more to the point -- the magnifying glass. Love the macro shots that Mach and others post, but, alas!, I lack the equipment and the means of obtaining such. :-( So here are some of my various and asundry attempts shooting through a handheld magnifying glass...
one of my best attempts, I...
Just got back from my vacation in Yellowstone to a wonderful surprise:
This was from a lot of around 50 seeds I got from the giveaway hosted by DragonsEye last month (thanks a ton!). So far, I've counted around 25 sprouts, with 3 on milled Sphagnum that I was too lazy to take a picture of...
Alrighty ladles and gerbils, here is yet another giveaway. I have 5 packets of seeds so 5 winners possible. This is for US members only, and you must be willing to post something of your own as a giveaway in return or have already done so in the past 3 months. Each winner of this contest will...

Once I was in a store and there was a corner in which some really strange plants were standing.
They shall eat meat or something like that and they are probably dangerous. No risc no fun. I took one of the glistening with the sticky leaves.
