D. arenicola ´Cerro Duida´ in flower

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

about one month ago one of my D. arenicola has flowered. For me it´s the first time.

I was very happy about the flowers because 6 months ago i lost 2 of my biggest plants, some kind of sudden death.

It has had 4 flowers, but i´ve only seen two of them fully opened, the first one and the last one.

The flower stalk is very short and the flowers are very close to the plant itself. :lookeye:

For my sadness i´m very busy in the moment and that´s the reason why i´ve totally forgotten to show these pictures, but Andreas very interesting field trip report rembered me to show them.

Hi Daniel!

Marvellous pictures, as always!

May I ask you about your growing conditions?

Do you grow them in a terrarium?

How much light and what temeratures do they get?

Thanks!

Regards,

Stefan

Many thanks to all of you. :peekaboo:

Stefan, i´m not growing them in a terrarium, they are growing in open trays like most of my other Drosera, watered by the tray method. The only Drosera i´m growing in a terrarium are plants of the petiolaris complex. :smile:

Here is an older link about my setup: A part of my setup

Each tray has 2 x 36/865 T8 (the old big ones) bulbs.

In the moment my night temperatures are about 10-15 degree, day time about 20-23. In summer they are much higher, but they don´t really have problems with higher temperatures.

Best regards,

Dani

Wow, Great Daniel. That is a beautiful well grown plant. Thanks for sharing. The small pigmy in the same pot really gives it a nice sense of its size.

Thanks Sebastian :thumright: ,

Fernando is absolutely right, there are only D. arenicola in this pot :yes: , a lot of young plants and these bigger ones in the middle of the pot.

The plant itself is not really very big, it´s about 2,5cm in diameter, the flower was nearly 1,5cm in diameter.

Best regards,

Dani
