Just curious as to what, if any Drosera would make for good companion plants with Sarrs. I would rather use Drosera that have similar dormancy requirements. I know the taller sarrs will block out the light somewhat but I have a possible solution for that.

In a natural bog I've seen plenty of filiformis growing with pitchers...tracyi being what I see in the closer bogs to me. I'm sure there are others. Filiformis likes it good and wet much like sarrs do. Both have the same growth habits, a vertical growth.

Cool. I have a couple of them. Will definitely be looking at doing this come spring time. I know they try to take over so will be keeping an eye on that also. I have already had to remove quite a bit of live moss from some of my Drosera pots as it is taking over. Any one interested in some live moss PM me. Although I do not have a lot, I have enough to share for a few people to start their own.
Sorry @Panman, not trying to impede on your Business. I just want to "Pay it Forward" since I have enough for myself.
