    Research paper on drosophyllum - 5 min at 100 celcius improves germination

    Just came across a research paper on germination of drosophyllum. Apparently 5 minutes at 100 degrees celcius (yes, I double checked it wasn't farenheit) improves germination, while plant leachates inhibit it without reducing viability. While it is in agreement with what we have seen, reading 5...

    PNW Drosophyllum germinating outside in cool temps and low light

    I was moving plants around outside last Saturday in preparation for freezing weather coming our way when I discovered Drosophyllum seedlings had very recently sprouted in a couple gallon nursery pots despite some pretty cold temps here recently (low 40’s day/low 30’s overnight). The media is...

    Drosophyllum lusitanicum: Tissue Culture Follow-Along

    Hey guys, I've been doing a lot of sterile culture work lately, and thought it might be fun to share some of the projects with you guys, as they unfold. If there's enough interest, I'll try to do some more of these "Follow-Along" threads for various species. So lets get started, shall we...

    My name is Edson, I'm from Brazil. I am an admirer of carnivorous plants, further the Drosera. My texts will be translated into English. have many errors, I understand. I seek a general learning, this is infinite. But I'm really looking for help with gender drosophyllum. I anticipate my thanks.

    Prototype Electric Tub

    This is a 12" (30cm) tub I'm using for 3 Drosophyllum. The copper tape I already had and I put it on really to use it up. The intention was to fit up a length of an Electric Slug Fence around the tub. However, I thought if I already had a potential circuit around the tub why didn't I just wire...

    Getting a leg up

    There was another Drosophyllum seed germinated so off I went for a fibre pot and the medium. The medium was already in a bucket so I gave it a quick mix and filled the pot. Over to the Drosophyllum seed pot and transferred the germinated seed. All nice and easy until this leg appears out of the...

    Drosophyllum Killer Babies

    My first Drosophyllum germinated July 18th, the second a few days later. They have both caught prey already. They are between 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch tall. I did not help them in any way. I did not put the bugs on the plant. They did this on their own at only a week old. Way to go! Sorry about the...

    Drosophyllum seedlings

    Last year I threw a handful of untreated/unscarified Drosophyllum seed under the mass of dead leaves from a droso plant that had expired the year before and then I torched the whole thing. I left the pot sit outside and this spring this is what popped up in that pot. I don't know if the...

    Hello from Rochester, NY

    Hello all, I've been growing carnivorous plants for over 10 years. Most of that time I lived in Brooklyn where my growing area was limited to two small windowsills. I moved upstate a few years ago and my collection has grown exponentially. I am interested in all types of carnivorous plants but...

    Flat Drosophyllum.

    A while ago a briefly mentioned that one of my dewy pines came up with one leaf and then never got around to getting a picture of it. It has more than one leaf now, but it's still oddly shaped. More like a menorah than like the brush shape my other two are. Have any of you grown similar ones...

    Grow shelf advice!

    Hi yall, ive been growing cp's for a few years here and there, and since I'm somewhat settled in my current place, I thought I'd set up a more permanent grow shelf. I dragged a free-standing wooden shelf from the backyard to my bedroom's south-facing window, put a few trays of live sphagnum and...

    Drosophyllum seedling with only one leaf.

    As more of my Drosophyllum lusitanicum seeds sprout, I noticed that one of them has only a single sticky leaf and figured some of you guys might want to hear about it. I'll keep tabs on it as it grows to see what it does differently.

    Propagating Drosophyllum from cuttings

    Some years back I saw a short article in the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter where a grower was describing how they had taken some of the plantlets that are often formed on the old flower stalks of Drosophyllum lusitanicum and rooted them into new plants. However, it seems no one I have heard from...
