    Roridula gorgonia...

    I just found a Roridula Gorgonia for sale, the seller said that it is a carnivorous plant, and it looked like the drosera forum would be the place to ask about it. What can you tell me about it, care-wise? I kinda like it, very cool-looking plant. Thanks /Quensel

    I have become fascinated, to a certain extent, with the "Tales of Roridula." I guess what people say about the plant isn't THAT fascinating, but I till would love to have one and watch the symbiosis between the plant, the capsid/assassin bugs (are these the same thing?), and the spiders. So...

    leucophysalis grows sticky leaves that catch small gnats and then tiny (1\8in.) assasin bugs eat the gnats (much in the matter of roridula). I don`t know if that classifys as a carnivore or not.

    Roridula denata growers?

    I received today some seeds of R. dentata and I know that seeds should be sown as soon as possible but I'm not sure what sort of process these plants need to germinate-do they need anything special like scarification, hot/cold stratification, a mini-brush fire on top of it's pot or some kind of...

    Scarifying seeds

    I just got ahold of some Roridula Dentata seeds, and they require scarification to germinate. I'll probably try half with a cigarrette and a dome to trap the smoke and half with burning either grass or paper. Has anyone tried this for seeds and gotten decent germination?
