Does anyone have experience cultivating Drosera flexicaulis? I have it growing indoors in a terrarium under lights, but I'm not sure that that is the right thing to do since there isn't that much light and it looks rather etiolated. If I grew it outside I would be able to give it full sun but would those conditions be too harsh for it? Temperatures are around 70-80 degrees during the day and maybe 65 at the lowest at night. I give it some Maxsea every couple of months and am growing it in peat. I have been growing it since July of last year.

Being a close relative of affinis, I would assume it likes really strong light and warm temperatures, but changes to any new conditions will require acclimation. I would love to get this species at some point and compare it to the affinis I grow.
