I'll probably have to up my photoperiod up to 12h then and hope it doesn't trigger D. cistiflora to go dormant.

Thanks for the info. I'll probably remove a sundew from the terrarium to make room for them so these guys get the intense lights of my 6 T-8s. The temperature ranges you specify perfectly match the existing climate of my terrarium. Right down to the photoperiod.

@Wire Man - cistiflora, eh? That one has gorgeous flowers. If it flowers I'd love to see the pictures.

Don't have pics of them yet. I was going to place a big order for gemmae, too, but have nowhere to put all of them.

Just potted mine today along with five other species and one hybrid... Is it okay if they get slightly buried by the peat? Yours are looking great!

I would avoid letting them go under the soil completely out of sight.
