    Tuberous Drosera

    After speaking with several members here among other growers, I have realized that there are more misconceptions about successfully growing these plants than I had thought.

    Transplanting tuberous Drosera

    I would like to move my dormant Drosera macrantha to a deeper pot, but I'm not sure how wet the medium should be. I intend to use a peat-sand mixture but I don't know how to mix them together while keeping them dry to prevent the tuber from rotting. How do I balance the needs for the soil to be...

    For Trade: N. 'Whisper' (Striped)

    I've got an unrooted cutting of N. 'Whisper' (Striped) for trade. If it roots before it trades, I'll have to reconsider what I'm looking for.. or if I even want to let it go. It's been in the rooting tank for 2 days and is still looking good. Cutting was taken by me from my own plant. It is...
