Beautifull pictures! And that rhey grow in a very dry habitat. Usely those Drosera are found on plances where there remains some moisture. It looks a bit like the Drosera habitat I have seen ones in South Africa, that same kind of sandy quarts soil.

Hi,

thanks for the pictures! Can the growth cycle of this plant be compared to those of some of the south african Drosera like hilaris or ramentacea? If i got it right, they don't fully die back during the dry season.

Hello Christian,

Yep, that sounds about right! except that the wet/dry seasons are reversed (winter is dry season in most part of Brazil).

Hi Fernando,

that's interesting. Are there more species in Brazil, that have some kind of a dormancy?

IsnĀ“t D. schwackei such a species with a "semi-dormacy".
And what about the D. hirtella complex and D. cayennensis which regrow from the roots.

Best regards,
Dani

Yes, many species will slow down, especially schwackei and quartzicola. But there are several that truly retreat to their roots, including all the cayennensis & hirtella complex plants, as Dani mentioned - plus there's also the type montana.
