I just had a quick question. I put some drosera intermedia seeds in the fridge to stratify, but they sprouted in the fridge before taking them out. Should I take them out now, or would that in any way shock them? Just wondering if I should leave them in the fridge until they're a little bigger...
This year I planted my first CP bog terrarium in many years, and I've been really pleased with the results. I wasn't terribly confident based on all the warnings you find online regarding the suitability of CPs for terrarium life, but after a little experimentation with lighting and the level of...
Hello and Happy Holidays to everyone!!
I am doing a quick weekend giveaway. I will pick the winners on Sunday morning and mail these guys out first thing Monday. I have way more than I need (or have room for, LOL) so I'm passing on the bounty. Postage is on me, all I need is your address.
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!
Hey all! As the title says I'm an outdoor grower but am trying something new. Mostly to start some sarr seeds over the winter but also trying my hand at Pygmy/subtropical sundews Mexican pings and potentially if successful a heliamphora. I grabbed one of these all in one lighting fixtures at the...
Hi everyone! It has been a while since I have updated my growlist, so I thought i'd do a new list with everything that I currently have. :)

Heya laddies and ladies an all,
I'm Carson from Portland. I've been growing CPs since I was 5 or so so that makes it sixteen years of growing I guess, damn I'm getting old hah
I'm a part time student at PSU going for an International Studies degree with a minor in Japanese...
Hey all, I have a some D. Finlaysoniana that I sowed a few months ago. A few of those seedlings are just now starting to leave the tiny seedling stage. The largest is about an inch tall and across now. The thing that I'm wondering is what kind of watering these plants want as they mature. I...
So I recently got a Drosera lunata with location data from japan and I know that it has a dormancy period in winter as opposed to summer but should I keep it moist over winter like my other temperate plants or let it dry out like most tuberous sundews?
I want seeds that I could buy from specifically sundews !! But any will do I want to try growing from seed... I have t-5 grow lights and I'm ready anyone trying to provide charity for a fellow beginner :) thank you .. or buy from anyone ?
Here is a photo of my P. chilensis. You can see some seedlings, that are likely from a seed pod which I forgot to harvest. One of the amazing traits of this plant is that it is completely autogamous!
The flowers of P. chilensis are very short, the stalk can be sessile like mine, or a few cm...
WTB: Drosera Hilaris
Looking to aquire a Drosera hilaris, either a plant, seeds or even leaf cuttings. I'm willing to buy or trade, I don't have a grow list up but have a well rounded collection of sundews, Nepenthes, Pinguicula, Heliamphora, and cephalotus.
List Date: 8/4/2016
I was at the gift shop of a conservatory that I often go to and found these sundews and I decided to give them a chance for survival, but I am unsure as to what they are. one is a d. filiformis, but I am unsure of the other two. Any advice on these plants is appreciated.
I'll get better photos...
I am still testing out my new Sony AX53 video camera.
I thought that a few sundews would look pretty cool in 4K.
The camera does some great photos, but it's also has a some VERY jumpy video for a $1,000 camera.
Anyway check out it, there is also some Pygmy sundew closeups.
Just registering my little collection

Well, hello everyone.
I am a relatively new grower from Brazil, I have been growing sundews (and only sundews, but I'm looking forward to expand my collection!) for 8 months now.
I actually found this forum when I was looking for places to trade seeds, as my collection has not expanded in a...
Im moving to a terrarium setup here in the next week because quite frankly my humidity inside my house is absolutely terrible. Probably something akin to a 20 gallon (Since I only have a 2 foot long light). (BTW Any tips on how high the light should be in a terrarium? right now they are about 8...
Have been battling with whether getting a Terrarium is worth it for Pings? Im probably going to repot my pings into a more mineral based mix. (Im thinking probably the APS and Terfus, or a Mix of either one of those with Sand).
I actually prefer the look of it (based on what im seeing in other...
