  1. Beautiful plants.  How long have you been growing them?
  2. Beautiful plant - that is some very unique colouring. Very suiting name too.

    Drosera bindoon

    Looks great - I love the flowers!

    Thanks everyone! @Lucas: It's a hybrid of a semi-tropical plant and a tropical plant, so it does not get a dormancy. Though it was growing well outside when temperatures were dropping to 5*C at night, but I'm not sure if it could thrive long term in those conditions.

    Hello, I brought these inside about a month ago, so they still have a lot of their bigger leaves from growing in less light but now have a lot more colour from the T5's. Soon they will be more compact than this, except for the D. tokaiensis which is still adapting to the change and is getting bigger. Left to right, Drosera x [anglica "CA x HI" x "Lantau Island"], Drosera x [tokaiensis x "Lantau Island"], and Drosera tokaiensis. D. tokaiensis Drosera x [tokaiensis x "Lantau Island"]. I won't propagate this one because it looks so similar to it's parents. Right now it looks pretty much exactly like D. sp. "Lantau Island", many months ago it looked more like D. tokaiensis. Drosera x [anglica "CA x HI" x "Lantau Island"]. Question about this one. Does anyone think this could be worthy of cultivar status? It's sterile, but very robust and easy to grow. Similar to D. 'Watari', but with broader leaves and the potential to turn all red like D. sp "Lantau Island". It looks similar to D. oblanceolata when red, so maybe I could call it Drosera 'oblanceonotta'. Let me know what your opinion is. Thanks for looking!
  6. Whoops, I just kind of assumed D. affinis was native for some reason. Hybrid or not, it's a beautiful sundew. Love the chameleon shots! So much variation.
  7. Thanks for sharing these pics! Could the last pic of of D. madagascariensis actually be D. affinis x madagascariensis? Did you see any D. affinis? It reminds me a lot of this picture: http://bilder.utricularia.net/a_s_fleischmann/drosera_africa/D_aff_X_mad_02.jpg
  8. Lovely colours and composition.
  9. Love the pics & plant. I like the coloring as well.

    Dionaea 'coquiton'

    Interesting plant, does it stay small?
  11. Thanks for all of the suggestions. Someone told me that the same thing happens to them and it's because of sudden temperature change. This makes sense since my plants were a bit close to the lights and it's cooler outside now, so every night the temperature drops quite a bit. So maybe the fan will help after all. I'll have to wait and see.
  12. Hello, My indoor flytraps have had traps closing without prey in them frequently and it seems to be affecting their growth. They close completely for many days or don't re-open at all, and if they do re-open, it;s only very briefly and then they close again. My first thought was that pests were triggering them shut, but if that were the case they shouldn't stay shut because they need continuous stimulation to seal shut. Then I thought it was something to do with the heat, but a cooling them with a fan did not help. Here's a picture to show what I mean: They are growing in rinsed coco peat which shouldn't be the cause - all of my other flytraps grow well in it. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.
