Hi,

first thx.

@ JP: The color of the D. zoneria was only a few days like this. At this time the plants were standing outside and two sunny days changed the pink into a red. Yes, I saw the small plant, too and 2 days after I took the picture the small one was covered by the big leaves of the D. magna. I put it a little bit aside, between the leaves. If it is overgrown again I have to take it out and I do not like to take out tuberous drosera when they are growing.

Great pictures and really nice looking plants!

 

I'm  still waiting for my D. Platypoda to sprout. :unsure:

Hi,

@ Ian: I am waiting for D. platypoda, too. There are at least for me several tuberous, which are notorious late riser. These include, for example, D. humilis , D. fimbriata , D.platypoda and a few others. On the other hand, there are also notorious early riser , eg. D. erythrorhiza, D. stolonifera and almost all of the simpler species eg. D. peltata , D. auriculata , D. macrantha.

Hi,

 

my Drosera rupicola are in different stages. The last ones are about 1 cm and the most ones are flowering. This is a picture from about three weeks ago. Right now some plants flowered and some seed vessels seems to build seeds.

Hi,

here are some more pictures. First the tuberous drosera which is in my opinion the most photogenic one, Drosera platypoda. Doesn't matter from which point of view or in which state.

 

gallery_6014_739_376104.jpg

 

gallery_6014_739_391991.jpg

 

gallery_6014_739_166345.jpg

 

This is Drosera purpurascens. OK, it's not so purpur or purple at the moment.

 

gallery_6014_739_376547.jpg

 

gallery_6014_739_190040.jpg

 

and here some Drosera moorei which came out about 3 or 4 weeks ago.

Wow, great photographs, and well grown!

Lutz: What soil mix are you using, and are these under supplemental lights? If they have supplemental lights, what's the photoperiod? Also, do you fertilize, and if so, how do you do it?

From this post by Phil Wilson: http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=6579 he mentioned he used 1 part potting loam mixed with sand for tuberous sundews, and this prevents the need to feed or fertilize your plants, since the potting loam has nutrients. Does anyone have a photograph of the type of potting loam that works for tuberous sundews? I've never heard of using this mix,but it sounds like having 3 parts sand dilutes it to the point that it's not too strong for CP's. Perhaps something similar to this mix (ie. 1/4 potting loam to 3/4 inert material) would be worth experimenting with as a substitute for peat moss...if it works for tuberous sundews, it may work for most other CP's.

Hi,

 

again ... some pictures of tuberous sundews.

First a drosera erythrorhiza from an uncommon perspective:

 

gallery_6014_739_327345.jpg

 

another Drosera erythrorhiza with some leaves at places where you did not expect them to grow.

 

gallery_6014_739_200432.jpg

 

A Drosera basifolia forest.

 

gallery_6014_739_281773.jpg

 

the one and only Drosera zonaria

 

gallery_6014_739_460537.jpg

 

and finally Drosera squamosa.

Hi,

 

here are some more tuberous sundews:

 

First a closer view on D. basifolia:

 

gallery_6014_739_48669.jpg

 

than a young and growing D. porrecta:

 

gallery_6014_739_18441.jpg

 

followed by a D. prostratoscaposa:

 

gallery_6014_739_319673.jpg

 

and  a "stray tuber", probably a D. macrantha:

 

gallery_6014_739_31678.jpg

 

Will be continued.
