    Sad spiralis after repotting

    So I already asked about root shock on another forum, but since I'm new to repotting Drosera (except for a D. capensis, which I probably could have stomped on underfoot and still not have set-back), I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced problems with repotting D. spiralis or other SA...

    Coming out of refrigerator dormancy

    Hi all, I've got a few bags of sundews, sarricenia, and pings that are about ready to come out of the fridge. I put them in bare root, and seemed to have not had any fungal problems. Any advice on bring them out? Do I need to acclimate them gradually to outside temperature or full sun? They...

    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...

    Need help identifying a few bits of moss

    I wanted to use some moss for my terrarium so I collected a sample from around my property in the woods. I think there is 3 species here but I don't know and are they any good for cp's like sundews and maybe cephs? Location: USA, North Carolina Thanks Chris Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    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...

    Artificial dormancy- how long?

    I moved into an apartment that gets only 1 hour of filtered sunlight a day on the patio. Probably 3-4 when the time change happens. Due to this I started using a 300W LED grow light in my mini greenhouse as artificial lighting. The plants are outside and went dormant in October. I just started...

    Glandular tentacle on petiole

    I noticed that my D. prolifera has some tentacles on its petioles. Has anyone else experience this with D. prolifera or other sundews? Sorry the pic isn't the best, but if you look towards the center of the plant, where another flower stalk is coming up, you'll see some long glandular tentacles...

    Flora's little list

    So I don't have a lot, but i'm super proud of my plants. I talk to them and tell them they are doing good. They seem to like it. Here it is: Outdoor: I have four S. purpureas, a couple i lost the tags for, so at this point i call them all purpureas. I have a S. Red throat, a couple Luecophylla...

    Mystery Pot of Dews

    Purchased this mystery pot of sundews from a nursery that was unfamiliar with them, keeping them in shaded corners and advising me to avoid direct sunlight. I know the majority of the pot is either D. Filiformis or D. Tracyi (How do you tell the difference? Or is it possible at their size?)...

    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...

    Hello from Portland, Oregon!

    Hey! My name is Ben, and I live in Portland, OR. I am a big fan of sundews and Nepenthes, though I only have two neps (sanguinea and ventrata). I posted a question earlier about re-potting tuberous sundews, but my internet has been a little screwy, and looks like I posted it 3 times without...

    Wintertime Shipping and Who?

    Spread the love

    Back in spring I got a ton of D. capensis from @dozer1028 (well, winter for him) to help spread the love so to speak. I had a giveaway at my college campus and many people started growing these fun carnivorous weeds, in fact every time I walk around campus, I'm bound to see someone's capensis on...
