Its here!!! Yay.
Drosera binata and capilaris. Will sun-break them for 2 days. Hope everything allright.So happy it came allright.
Hope the binata can grow tall and produce many dews.
And its raining. I think it will raise up the humidity a little bit. XD
Got three new additions for my collection.
Baby Adelae (paid the plant price (1USD) with shipping, extra 1 plant).
Baby Capilaris longleaf (bonus from fili).
Baby Filiformis (pay shipping only).
I never know that Filis was a really tough plant. It was still standing straight...
Hi, how are you guys?
Well, see, I am totallly new in this hobby.
And I just got this new drosera intermedia from a local breeder.
He sent it to me bareroot, covered with wet paper towel. According to him, its a juvenile.
I plant it, but there are no dews and some of the leaves are browning.
Yesterday I made the trek up to LA from San Diego to attend their Annual Huntington Botanical Gardens meet. On the itinerary: scope out the members displays, sales and give-aways (and ditch a pile of cuttings :-P-:), go on the tour of the back greenhouses, then there was a talk from DJ on his...
I have various species of Sarracenia, vfts, dews, and pings growing under the same LED light. I am worried that the LED light does not have enough blue and white for vegetative growth. The plants are in a mini greenhouse outside with the plants and the lamp is about 25 inches above the top of...
I was thinking about d. Capensis' ability to form a hibernaculum when it gets cold and I was wondering. Are there any sundews that form hibernaculum in times of draught? Besides tuberous dews.
By the way, I've been on terraforums for three months and this is my 300th post. WHOOOHOOOOO :boogie:
Hey plant friends, long time no see. I've got too many sarrs and am looking for trades. I'm open to offers of anything but I've got way too many neps and sarrs, so unless it's something really cool I'm mainly looking for VFTS, sundews, pings, genlisea, or stylidium.
Here's what I've got:
Overview of the indoor setup, light is a 6 bulb t5ho with two 3500k bulbs and 4 6500k bulbs.
Sorry for the focus issues in some photos, still learning with the new DSLR. I would love some tips...
D. Venusta (shipper folded the plant :rant:)
D. Spatulata, I don't think I've...
So, I've decided to try propagating my D. Aliciae and my D. Venusta via a couple of different methods (to see which work best, if any). I've taken cuttings of a flower stalk from each, leaf cuttings from each, and root cuttings from the Aliciae, as it needed a pot upgrade anyway, its roots were...
One of my pots of D. burmannii "Green" has suddenly started to look irritated, and I can't pinpoint exactly why. Nothing has changed about its conditions for several months - 75F day temps, 60F night, growing in the same tank as my other subtropical 'dews (D. sessilifolia, other forms of D...
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?)...
I am using a mini greenhouse to grow a variety of sarrs, vfts, dews, and pings. Below is the link to the greenhouse I am using. I took out the second shelf and have all my plants on the third shelf. I also plan to put a grow light on the top shelf. The problem I am having is that my new...

Hi TF - I've got some seed of a few South American Drosera. I've never grow this group before, but plan on doing so in my highland room. Generally their culture seems straight forward and I'm not super concerned about their germination - except...
I've read some strong preferences for media...
After a long wait, they finally sprouted. Thank you Johnny for giving me the opportunity to grow these!

Well, apropos of a recent thread, I decided to start a new one here that is on-topic, of that off-topic discussion :jester:
When I was first starting out, in all the instructions I found, the proverbial 'they' described a certain potting medium, certain humidity, a grow setup, which plants...
