Last week I made a long journey to visit two natural sites with Drosophyllum lusitanicum in Andalusia, Los Alcornocales, aprox. 620 meters under see level. That is really interesting to see Drosophyllum in such a dry habitat.
First site is a sunny open space , the soil consists mainly of sandstone. Temperature 23C ( The sea is located about 40 km away,temperature by sea 30C)
Soil consists mainly of absorbent sandstone, which is important to absorb and retain rainwater:
Second site, under the branches of Cork Oak (Quercus suber), soil has a higher content of humus
