  1. Hello, Very nice plants. I like your natural biotope effect. I also do the same in some of my pots. Cheers, Damien
  2. Hello Tanqueray, Thank you the comments, I slightly modified the sentence related to the origin of these plants ;-) Kindest regards.
  3. Hello, Through this short article, I would like to share my method of growing pygmy sundews, which has begun to give quite satisfactory results in recent years. Most of these Drosera are endemic to Australia where they mainly occur in the western part of the country. The climate is rather subtropical with hot and dry summers, and fairly cool and humid winters, although temperatures are very rarely negative. The vegetative cycle of the miniature Drosera consists of two main phases. Plants develop carnivorous leaves especially in autumn and winter, when soil and air humidity is h
  4. Hello, I would like to share with you my little experience of growing Drosera of the Petiolaris group. These magnificent plants are found mainly in northern Australia. The climate consists of a hot period with sometimes very high temperatures (over 35°C) and a high level of soil and air humidity. It is during this period that the Drosera develop their carnivorous leaves. The other part of the year, temperatures are cooler (especially at night) but often remain above 10-15°C while daytime temperatures remain quite high (+25°C). In addition, rains are almost completely absent for several m
  5. Jeff, You can try not giving them dormancy but they will reduce growth anyway ;-). In my experience, D.paradoxa (and hybrids) is the only species that can grow all year without a true dormancy but other species will require it for an healthy development and a long term conservation (more than 2 years). Kindest regards. Damien
  6. Hello Jeff, You can move your seedlings in another pot if you keep enough substrate around the roots. To avoid too much stress, it is always better to consider enough space between each seeds during sowing and not putting too many of them in one pot. I agree with Marcel, heat and high RH are ok if you provide enough light. To me, the biggest challenge with young Pet.sundews is to keep them alive during their first dormancy period when they have only 1 cm in diameter. Good luck ;-) Kindest regards. Damien

  9. Hi everyone, Nice topic Rodrigo! Genlisea are so amazing plants! Dead Sphagnum can work well including with G.africana. When I was in Angola, I saw some populations of this last species growing amount living and dead sphagnum whereas other populations were growing on sandy soils. I cultivation, I noticed that dead sphagnum can be really usefull when growing conditions deal with high temperatures and high humidity all year round (in a tropical terrarium for example). However a more "classical" growing media like a mix of peat and sand also works really well in the most cases. All th
  10. Wonderful Christian, many thanks for sharing!
  11. Dear growers, To start the year, I would like to share with you some pictures I took today. First, a beautiful flower of U.fulva: U.pubescens: Then, some pictures of Drosera which is one of my favourite genus: The rare D.chimaera growing slowly: D.roraimae from Serra do Araca and its amazing pink-red colour: A nice form of D.latifolia: A nice group of D.capensis WF x aliciae I hope you like them. All the best, Damien
  12. I wish you all the best for this new year! Let's grow!!!
  13. Dear Daniel, I am also really really sorry about what happened to you and your family, I was really schocked by the videos of the fire. I send you all my postivie thinkings to overcome this dificult time. Of course, you can also count on me to rebuilt your collection when the situation will be better. Friendly, Damien
