  1. for the record, i jokingly said "...can we just call itchrysolosa to avoid confusion??? :) " i wasn't being serious. so is anyone growing this chrysolosa looking thing now? sundewmatt
  2. ah, so it gets very old there. i was hoping this would be another warm grower. oh well.
  3. nice. i also want to know minimum winter temperatures. matt
  4. has anyone found drosera in spain? I'm interested in seed of the ones from warmer locations. it seems there's rotundifolia and also Anglica, no?
  5. thats great, thought thats a pretty tiny pic. i remember visiting kew ages ago and they had quite a few plants labelled Acaulis at the time.
  6. hi nadja! would it be possible to sort out the photo bucket situation or repost these images? a friend just sent seed of swaziland drosera and i wanted to drool over your pics a bit. :) thanks! matt
  7. funtofunky, thats what they look like... before they die! :/ im guessing the roots might have died and it's just a bud sitting in air. if it was my plant, id remove just the bud and firmly plant it so its making good contact w the medium. good luck! sundewmatt
  8. well, i wasn't able to get answers to one of my questions here, so i regrettably joined facebook, posted a few rare drosera and instantly acquired 30 new facebook friends and lots and lots of likes. makes me feel real special. and loved. it also seems like a good way for those of us in the US to sell plants. ill be sure to check back here from time to time though. meanwhile, anyone who wants to be facebook friends, come n find me. :)
  9. I recently pulled some 10 year old DROSERA seed out of the refrigerator and planted it in several different isolated chambers. One of the batches now reeks of mildew (!). Visibly, there's some typical green slime, but I don't see anything that looks like mildew, and the seedlings are all very healthy. Does anyone have any suggestions to completely destroy this mildew or whatever it is thats causing this horrible odor? Any solution would need to be completely non-toxic as I grow my plants in my living room. I've been reading about sulfur and potassium bicarbonate but wonder if the sulfur would burn the Drosera and the potassium bicarbonate would be too basic. Here's some more info, though there's no indication on how Drosera would react to any of these, which is why I'm asking here. :) http://www.growingagreenerworld.com/controlling-or-eliminating-powdery-mildew/ If I can't find a good solution, I'm gonna toss them and start over. Thanks! Matt

    Peat quality varies here in the US. plus, supersphag is a lot cleaner to work with. I may dust off some old peat for some petiolaris complex plants soon though.
  11. id recommend putting them in dead milled sphagnum instead as live sphag can overgrow small plants. also, they're pretty spindly - it looks like they need to get more light. keep them really humid or they will probably (insert skull emoji). next time id just recommend laying them flat in wet dead milled sphag in a brightly lit location w high humidity. matt
