My Filiformis is already 3 inches tall and it budded in late August :D
I noticed that Drosera Binata is on your growlist! If you want, I could send you one once they are bigger...

So, today I fed the drosera binata. Using a small paintbrush, and crushed fish food flakes. I hope I didn't overfeed them... Well we should see a lot more growth now that they have been fed... :D

Overnight, most of the small food particles have dissolved, and the sundews are wrapping their tentacles around the larger particles!!
