Hey I recently broke my budget again
to get a couple of amazing dews. I received a Drosera Spiralis and a Drosera Magnifica
. I so excited and have done a lot of research in the matter of growing these plants but nothing really beats first hand experience. I was hoping for some tips on growing these or even mistakes that you made the first time around. Any and all info is welcome even some pics of yours might help.
I've poked several small holes through the growing medium on both to aid in soil aeration and reduce compactification on the roots. I've currently got them both in an acclimation chamber to help reduce shipping stress. conditions of chamber are roughly 100 % humidity and temps from 65-70 in day to 60-55 at night with 6500k lights on for 14 hours daily. I am currently building peltier highland units for both to be able to control temps better and plan on moving them to their units when they recover from shipping stress. I plan on regulating Magnifica's unit based on weather and temperature cycles of the mountain in Minas Gerais where it was discovered. Hopefully they will be thankful for all my hard work.
