Hi all! I bought some petiolaris Drosera seeds because, well, if I'm going to have a heated tank set up I may as well fill it! So today I needed to get the new pots into the tank and one of the exsisting pots, didn't want to move over. I did break a couple- who knows how long they were but I...
I'm not sure when these became available for free download but these are great publications of interest to just about any CP enthusiast. I purchased the issue on Petiolaris sundews sometime back and consider it one of the best things on the subject available. Great photos, too. Enjoy!
I currently have several mature Drosera lanata (AG3 clone) plants to trade. I am looking for D. fulva, D. banksii, D. darwinensis, D. kenneallyi, D. ordensis or any of the aff. species/forms. This photo shows the same clone I am offering. If you are interested send me a pm (personal message) or...

For bid is one rooted division from the cluster in the photo. This division is healthy, rooted and growing independently as it was divided some time ago. This is said to be one of the easier species to grow of the Petiolaris sundew group but it still appreciates higher temperatures and humidity...
Looks like my D. Petiolaris is flowering! Alright!

While photographing Drosera petiolaris last week I found a couple of plants with some seriously mutated flowers with a mess of tentacles all mixed in with the other flower parts.
Some weren't too bad but have a look at this one in particular:
I noticed a post in the VFT forum about a mutant...
I am currently working in Darwin in the north of Australia and spend most of my weekends messing around in the sandy swamps around a place called Howard Springs. Allen Lowrie did a trip up here way back in 1991 when he discovered Byblis aquatica and there are several species of Drosera...

I suppose it's probably time I started a photo thread. Here are some of the more presentable plants in my collection. Enjoy!
Allen Lowrie's Carnivorous Plants of Australia: Magnum Opus (2013) lists some 241 species of carnivorous plants at the time of publication. 163 of those are Drosera. Of these 29 are newly named. Some are new species formally described for the first time. Some were renamed as the "true" species...
So my Drosera paradoxa is going into dormancy, and I don't have much experience with this. amphiron's crash course guide says to keep temperatures high but to let the soil dry out. However, I heat my terrarium by putting an aquarium heater in a jar of water; thus, humidity is always...
I got this plant about a month ago. It doesn't seem to like its current growing conditions. I am growing it with my petiolaris Drosera (which are doing great) on a windowsill in an enclosed container. The humidity and temperatures are pretty high.
The plant has shrunk even though I have fed...
Here are some of the plants that I'm looking for.

I got this plant as Drosera derbyensis, but I'm not sure since the petioles seem kind of wide.
This plant came as Drosera brevicornis but I don't think that is the case as the traps don't appear to be elongated.
I really hope they aren't hybrids.
While upgrading my petiolaris terrarium I was confronted with the question of what was I going to do for lighting? This is what I came up with. The components were mostly purchased from Home Depot - egg crate grating, E27 (screw-in type) sockets and standard lamp cord and a plug. In addition the...
