    Drosophyllum on a windowsill?

    I realize D'Amato wrote that this was nearly impossible to do successfully in his book, but has anyone had positive results from growing Drosophyllum on a windowsill in zone 6 or 7?

    Drosophyllum and peat pots

    A few weeks ago, my Drosophyllum died when its pot was tipped over by a vandal. In the course of trying to repot it, I saw that the peat pot that it came in had not broken down even thought the plant had already been in a larger pot for six months, and that the soil inside the peat pot was very...

    When to let my Droso babies dry out for the summer?

    Apologies in advance if this has been covered before. I did search the forum first. I promise :-).

    Fresh Drosophyllum seed giveaway

    My bushy old mother Drosophyllum decided it was time to flower in January/February and produce its last crop of seed. Sadly, the drosos in this pot have reached the end of their life cycle after 4 great years, but have given me many progeny to fill the void. I have two packets for giveaway...

    Gibberelic Acid Advice

    Hi guys! I recently got ahold of some lab-grade GA3 powder. It says it's 90%. I'd like to know how best to mix it up, and what to dissolve it in (water? alcohol?). I've read the "best" concentrations to shoot for are 500-1000ppm. Is this true? I'm going to try and use it on very old D. omissa...

    Transplanting Drosophyllum

    I purchased a Drosophyllum in a peat pot a few weeks ago and I plan to transplant it into a two feet diameter terra-cotta pot in the next few days. I just have a few questions before I put the plant into its permanent home. The previous inhabitant of the pot was a cactus (Hylocereus to be...
