This Drosera is a tropical African variety, often dying back to the roots and regrowing after a short dormancy. I have no experience with the rapidity of its motion, sorry. If you have a source for this species, I am very interested.
one of my plants http://communities.msn.co.uk/Stephen....toID=27
not dificult, but it has a short growing season. it is from southern africa, so it is a sub-tropical I suppose. not easy to flower for me, usually propogate from root cuttings. speed, cant say it is faster than any other SA sundew.
The sp. with fast moving tenticles from S.Africa is D.pauciflora, not cuneifolia.
The pic does not look like the cuneifolia shown in The Savage Garden. The lamina of the cuneifolia shown in the book looks much wider.
Statik what is up with your sundews? They looks like they are growing on top of each other. Is that the way that species grows? Your plants are very cool, make me want to go and order some, in fact I think I will first chance I get. Thanks L.A. Trap
