  1. Just curious on how and when a Pygmy produces Gemmae? I was watching a video on someone's collection of Drosera and he said if you want Gemmae, let the plant dry out a little in the summer time. Another online page said 'If the plants are getting sufficient seasonal light cues they will produce gemmae in the late fall and early winter'. 

    Both were from the US so how and when in the UK is the time for a pygmy to produce Gemmae and how do you encourage it to do so? 

     

     

  2. I actually don't know. I've bought a £20 selection from Hewitt-Cooper Carnivorous Plants so he'll pick 5 of his choice to send. Almost certain to receive Utricularia bisquamata "Betty's Bay" but I'll have to wait and see.:banana:
