    There is always a chance, especially with Queensland drosera. I got some cuttings from my D. x Andromeda. They are only about a cm small, but if you want, you can have one. Cheers, Anton

    I am growing both species. I keep all my Queensland drosera in a plastic mini terrarium in the darker areas of the windowsill (the window is facing eastwards). The humidity is always around 80-100%. Temperatures normally below 30°C. A drop of the temperature during the night into the low 20s seems to be appreciated. My D. prolifera is currently struggling and looking quit bad. It didnt cope well with the recent heat wave we had in England. D. x andromeda looks very healthy and seems to be doing alright despite the high-ish temperatures. I also acquired a D. schizandra recently which is still looking very good, but I could do without higher temperatures for the rest of the summer. First of all i would punch some holes in the plastic bag so heat can escape. You should also consider putting them in a larger container (maybe an old cucumber jar? or a small terrarium?) and place them in a darker area on your windowsill so they dont get too much sun. Cheers and good luck, Anton
