Great pictures! Thanks a ton for sharing! I've got a few questions...

What kind of lighting are you using?

How big are the pots that your drosophyllum are planted in?

Are the browniana and zigzagia seed grown? If so, how long did it them take to pop up?

Thanks!

Certainly, glad you enjoyed

I've got a few questions...

I have answers :D

What kind of lighting are you using?

1000W HID @ 1m above the trays

How big are the pots that your drosophyllum are planted in?

10cm x 10cm x 40cm

Are the browniana and zigzagia seed grown?

No, the browniana I got as a tuber and the zigzagia was originally from seed placed in TC but I deflasked plants so they were well going by that time.

If so, how long did it them take to pop up?

Can not answer that for those but I can give you some stats on other species

D. peltata: germination in first season (i.e. no drying of pot between sowing and germination)
D. macrantha: germination in first and second season
D. macrophylla, lowreii, whittikarii, porrecta: germination in second and third season
D. ramellosa: germination in third season

Spiffy! Some of those are really cool, not to mention dews you don't see very often. Some of those tuberous dews amaze me, how do they stand up all on their own?! Certainly not something to keep in mind when designing a building....

Very nice bud! Great start with the
D. browniana... amazing. My gigantea hasn't shown any comeback yet this winter... but it came back late last year too.
I have failed my mission... My socks have been knocked off. :-O :p

I love that D. browniana; I don't think I've ever seen those before. It's like a Drosera pretending to be a Ping. I'd like to grow one of those next to a P. gypsicola to see if I could confuse people about which genus is which.
Also, what is DUW? Download at Ur own Wrisk? Driving Under Wisconsin? Don't Usher Warnings?

at first glance I thought you had Asparagus growing in your D. gigantea pot. lol

Yeah it is funny like that. Takes them a while to get past the asparagus stage :)

Do all tubers climb like that?

No they don't all climb, about half do.

do you grow D. hamiltonii the same as a Ceph, watering and everything?

Not quite, I grow it a little wetter than I grow my Cephs

Which one would you say is the most difficult to grow?

Well that is sort of a "trick question" type thing. Once you know how to properly grow tuberous they are not too terribly difficult. However, learning how to properly grow is difficult for some people. If you want to grow tuberous I highly recommend you start with one of the easier, more forgiving species like D. peltata

I love that D. browniana; I don't think I've ever seen those before.

It is a nice species. Related to D. macrophylla . Somewhat rare, not for the beginner.

Also, what is DUW?

Nice collection pyro. Your 4th unknown looks a lot like my D. huegelii (pics to follow). Could be macrantha too... in fact, probably more likely it's that than huegelii. Yours doesn't have the particularly bell shaped leaves
1st might be some sort of erythrorhiza
