  1. Drosophyllum lusitanicum is good catcher of mosquitos. It seems they catch only males. They have large antenaes, females don't have only small ones.

  2. Hello everyone, There are a lot of amazing pictures of heliamphora and a lot of talented growers with perfect plants growing in perfect conditions. I've been growing heliamphora in amateur conditions in my bedroom for almost 8 years now and I just wanted to share that it's possible to have nice plants without extra night temperature drops or expensive cooling systems. Having said that, I'm a bit of a plant freak and I'd love to provide my plants with the best conditions possible, so I'm constantly thinking of employing an efficient and cost-effective cooling system. In my situation, I'm t

  4. I top-water them once in 4 days or so. As for the media, I use sphagnum moss with seramis, hydroton and agro foam. But a week ago, I started an experiment - I potted three plants in the akadama-kanuma mix. If it works, I plan to pot more plants into this mix.

  5. You may get the plant to recover somewhat over the next couple of weeks and get some dew on the leaves but unless it has some sun and warm temperatures I doubt it will grow more leaves at this time of year.

Here is an article on growing Drosera capensis you may find useful - Drosera capensis growing care - although you can also find cultural instructions for the plant on most carnivorous plant nurseries. Kind regards, Rob

  7. Hi Catalin It definitely looks like Drosera capensis. As Tropfrog says, they are very forgiving but tend to go to sleep over the winter months or at least lose some of their lower leaves which will go brown. Don't split the plants at this time of year or repot them, only when they start growing strongly in the Spring. You really want to try and give them some direct sunlight if at all possible and definitely only rainwater which you should keep shallow at this stage (1 - 2 cm) - just enough to keep the soil slightly damp on the top. You can put them outside on a balcony or window ledg

  8. In my limited experience this is a very forgiving plant. It should recover as is. It is rain water in the tray, right? Br Magnus
