Yep, betta pellets. These are whole and soaked a tiny bit. I had just dropped them on, its curled up around them already this morning. He doesn't seem to mind whole dry portions, but I thought moist might speed things up. I use these for all my plants and fish, crushed powder particles for all the other drosera though.

lol yea
by the way I just thought that could be why you lost some of the brevifolia not too long ago, if im not mistaken that plant dies after flowering

i didnt lose the ones that flowered, isaac. i lost juvies and babies
the ones i had flower were the size of a quarter, the ones i lost were all smaller then a dime, most of the lost where maybe 5mm across- AND the thread about them, majority saw fungus in the pot.
oh, so 2-3 of the plants i had flowered more then once over the summer and i still have them

Already seeing the extra growth on the seedlings that I was able to feed last week. There is a noticeable difference, very obvious which were fed.

I'm thinking I have at least 4 variety of drosera, and 3 types of pygmy drosera.

Freshly transplanted and added to my collection are the Fly Trap (1) and the Purple Pithers (3)

Also, changed lighting to include 5000k 1600 lumen CFLs in addition to the 2700k 3000 lumen CFLs-

IF you are exposing those plants to much natural light, they are going to heat up a lot in clear containers, if they're under lights; however, they should fun.
Looking for any drosera capensis via seed, pm me!
I'm interested in any sundews.

these are indoors, under lights. once they are bigger, im going to be transplanting them into their more perm pots- and then they will be outdoors for spring and summer. i have the clear so i can kind of see how wet they are or arent ;]

Good to know, and they look great, which is why I was only questioning skeptically ;), I might do the same, but I'm too worried about algae growing, or slowing my plants' growth by encouraging the roots to grow sides rather than down and sprout seedlings that photosynthesize very little. (submerged in dirt)

Ras- brevifolia does not die after flowering.
It is very much like a small D. capillaris.

They don't go dormant either.
They just die back to the roots.

Anyway, really nice plants/seeds.
