Tuberous drosera wake up


Recommended Posts

Those are just stunning!

 

Please can you share details of the growing conditions. Specifically, what mix are they planted in, what '(if any) lighting do you have, what humidity is there around them, etc. Anything you can share would be great. You've really got me interested!

 

Thanks for the beautiful pics.

Hi again,

 

here are some more pictures.

 

First a D. zonaraia, the same which is on the picture above but from another perspective:

and a growing Drosera moorei

I grow all the tuberous drosera in the cellar under T5 ligths. The temperatures are right now about 10 °C at night and maybe 15 to 20 °C at daytime and the humidity is about 30 % I think. Tuberous Drosera are not so picky in the case of humidity. The very most of the them I grow in peat : sand+gravel 50:50 apart from some specials.

 

Best regards
