Hiya! Can you recommend some non-tricky and easy drosera species that get along with lowland nepenthes species (meaning high humidity and temperatures)? I am not that experienced with sundews though I have grown some from seed.

- Thanks! :happy:

I agree with Stephen- I grow the species that he mentions with lowlanders, plus D magagascariensis and D hartmeyerorum. Tropical annual Byblis also grow very well for me in these conditions.

Hi,

You might try N. neocaledonica and D. indica as well.

All the best,

Fran├žois.

Hi There

How about the three Queensland Sundews; Droseras adelae, prolifera and schizandra? All three love hot, humid conditions and do well in lower light than other species.


Good luck

Andy

I second this, they'll do nicely if the humidity is really high.

Some tropical locality of Drosera spatulata would do great. Also, Drosera burmannii, although it is an annual, but it will produce quite a lot of seed to reproduce.

D. aliceae, D. capensis, D. madagascariensis, D. intermedia from Gran Sabana, D. affinis, D. burmannii, D. sessifolia, D. felix and D. oblanceolata are the plants that I would recommend. Growing all of those in same terraria with happy N. ampullaria and N. rafflesiana.
