Here are a few shots of Drosera scorpioides, an Australian Pygmy Sundew.

This is the only Sundew that likes my growing conditions.

Hopefully, it will produce Gemmae this fall so I can share this species.

Good growing,
Mike

Oh wow, how big are they? They really look like tiny affinis (Affini?)!! Do you need to give them dormancy?

Those are some pretty happy and awesome looking sundew Mike. You're starting to make me a big fan of Drosera (I'm still not turning to the dark side though). I may have to get myself some seed when it's available.

Nice! I've been growing them for years. Mine usually starts making gemmae in November and December.

Lovely plant Mike . One of my favorite pigmy . I haven't had the chants to grab one yet. I read somewhere that the only last a few years so you need to plant gamma to keep your colony going. Is the true?

They will last a few years and get taller each year. I always plant new gemmae each year though. I had a 4 year old one but it starts getting too tall.
