Well, I'm happy to say that my D. Platypoda have survived their first dormancy period in my care. One came up a couple of weeks before the other, same as last year, but they are both alive and growing. I took a photo of the first one to wake up, which has now developed a flower bud as well. I will post more images when the second plant (in the pot in the background) has put a bit of growth on and when/if the flower opens. Best regards, Ian.
Hi, I am a great fan of feeding my plants and yesterday was mealtime. "Power for the flower" (Drosera schmutzii) "Maggots are delicous!" (Drosera rupicola golden green) "Marinated and juicy" (Drosera auriculata) "Well-hung" (Drosera erythorhiza ssp. magna) "Headjump" (Drosera modesta) Take care Lutz
Finally! One of my D. Platypoda has woken up and made an appearance. This is my first time trying to grow tuberous drosera and it's been an anxious time over the past few months, wondering if I've got the conditions right and am I over/under watering. Then this morning I saw this in one of my pots. I am really happy that they have started to wake up (and relieved I haven't killed them) and I'll post more pictures as they get bigger. Regards, Ian.
Hi, maybe you know the tuberous sundews part of Growsundews.com. There was a gallery with about 5 pictures of tuberous sundews. Great! In the last weeks I started to take pictures of my tuberous drosera and in order to make great pictures I asked some people, who really know how to do. Two of them are Jean-Pierre and Martin. They not only gave valuable tips, they also contributed some pictures, really impressive pictures! Some of them you will know from differnt threads in different forums, some of them were never published. At the end there are more than 170 pictures in the gallery and if you are interested in tuberous drosera have a look at them. Leaf of Drosera auriculata Hartz Mountains (by Jean Pierre) Drosera lowrie (by Martin) Drosera fimbriata (by me) Tuberous sundews gallery Tuberous sundews Growsundews.com If you have some nice pictures of tuberous drosera which are sleeping on your computer or are buried deep in a thread where nobody will see them again and if you want to see them on growsundews.com then pm me. Who was on the side maybe realized that the loading time is quite long, which is not very surprising with about 170 preview images. The technology and the design of the side is .... well, maybe it can be done better. The site is now over 10 years old and neither Aaron nor I have the time to get so deeply incorporated into the matter that we can form a contemporary side. There were some attempts to create a new page with some already prepared templates, but ... . Is there anybody with the appropriate knowledge and the desire to help us who will do this for free, just for fun and to contribute something to the community? She or he has just to prepare one page that we can use as a template. It must not be a super duper hightech flashing state of the art webside where professional web designers say "Wow!" (of course it can be). For us the information is the most important thing and we think that growsundews can be better, maybe better accessible by mobile phone, responsive, faster loads, picture gallery etc.. If there is anybody out there who can and will do this please pm me. It would be really great. Meanwhile enjoy the pictures. Kind regards Lutz
