    What sundew is this?

    Got me a sundew mystery mix on eBay which contained surprisingly fresh seeds, most of them sprouted within a week. One of the plants which looks like the attached image grows very fast, can you help me what type it is? Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk

    Drosera burmannii seed

    I harvested some seed from my Drosera burmannii on May 9th, 2016. The plant is all green, even the tentacles, although growing in halfway decent light ( bright enough to color up the hitchhiking Sundew in that pot ). The flower is a light pink. I've posted photos of this plant and its flower on...

    *PAID* Drosera petiolaris (Houstonherp $25)

    For bid is one rooted division from the cluster in the photo. This division is healthy, rooted and growing independently as it was divided some time ago. This is said to be one of the easier species to grow of the Petiolaris sundew group but it still appreciates higher temperatures and humidity...

    I received a sundew from an online seller about a month ago. I just noticed this hitchhiker in the corner of the pot!

    D. Binata dormancy.

    Hey all, I have been reading about d. Binata. I like them, but I've seen photos of specimens the size of a small bush and I do not have room for a sundew the size of a small bush in my house during winter. Is it possible that during winter I could trim the sundew down to its hibernaculum and...

    Sundew seeds in the rain

    I just planted some drosera capensis seeds today in a 6-inch LFS pot outside. Should I bring the seeds inside if it rains or keep them outside because I am worried they will get washed under the soil.

    Interloper ID appreciated

    This little plant has sprung up very recently in one of sundew pots. Pot has never been outside and the media has not been changed in two years. Any ideas?

    Drosera Regia care?

    Hello, I have been interested in possibly getting a Drosera Regia. I have kept vft's and nepenthes with success, but this would be my first sundew. What's their care like? Watering lighting etc. Do they need a dormancy?

    Jello Shots!....(for the plants, not you)

    I wanted to wait before I said anything concrete, but as I ended up trading away most of my test subjects, it looks like things are on hold for awhile until the next batch of seedlings are large enough, and anyone who knows me, knows that I can be impatient with certain things... This began...

    Seed disaster

    So last long weekend I decided to plant a whole bunch of seeds, mixed sundews including capes, tokaiensis, aliciae, omissa, burmannii, filiformis, dreamsicle, some vft seeds and utricularia as well. Today I was inspecting each pot individually and I noticed on the vft seeds at the very tip of...

    Trying to join the bandwagon on Pygmy drosera gemmae, trade or?

    I have seen a few posts about Pygmy sundew gemmae lately, was wondering if anyone out there currently has any for trade or whatever. Mostly I have Aldrovanda and some other aquatics. Though I also have a bit of a sprawling noid orchid that I was told had orange flowers. Or Stapelia or...

    Minimum dormancy length?

    New England has had a few hot days recently, but I didn't think much of it until today. I looked at the bog tray and saw a forked leaf sundew unfurling a pair of new leaves. One of my VFTs appears to be doing the same. I cracked open a window and the room rapidly dropped to a reasonable dormancy...

    Stapeliae winter photoperiod

    I'm interested in getting some stapeliae, but I'm not familiar of their care (or even succulent care for that matter!). It mostly seems that during the winter, they are "dormant", although I don't know if it is a true dormancy or if they just slow down their growth. Because of this, I should...

    Why Are There No Gemmae Offerings This Year?

    I'm trying to rebuild my Pygmy sundew collection. I'd be happy to pay for gemmae & postage or work out a trade for pings.
