weekly update 01/10/2012

D. Brevifolia and D. Capensis and the Phoenix. An old long thought dead red or wide d. cape sprout. Growth has slowed WAY down on the d. cape sprout, not sure why?

Ohhh lantua island, if you ever get that thing plugging away, let me know I'd be very interested in a trade!
Looking for any drosera capensis via seed, pm me!
I'm interested in any sundews.

Pretty, in your 1.10.13 update, the first photo (a brevifolia, I think) has astonishing coloration on the plants. I'm just curious, did you alter the color of the photo at all, or are the plants naturally that bright red?

In any case, your plants look great! Nice job. -Lock

Yes, they naturally get a lot of color when conditions are right. Everything I hear about drosera in general is that the amount of light has to do with the coloration- of course they revel in light but these seem to depend on water and feeding. To me this seems to be a pretty hardy plant, doesn't mind being transplanted, going completely dry, cold temps, leaf cuttings, ect. but to keep it deep red/burgandy I have to over feed it and keep it WET on 16/8 hours in 77+f heat.

Sadly my inconsistency with them in turn gives me the changes in their color week to week-

Funny to me you're asking if this picture was colored, because I was thinking the plant was very green, and wondering what I needed to do to boost the color! haha!

Happy plants: In real life these pots/plants look identical.

Taken with my cell phone, regular flash, overhead 2700k bulb. You can't even see the dew:
Image

Taken with my camera, no flash, back-lit by a 6500k light bulb . I was attempting to capture the dew:

The pictures weren't colored. I got a new camera so I WAS playing with settings and options while i clicked away but the only photos I've edited/used diff settings were these:

This one I had used the fish eye lens option on my camera:

and I used the 'natural snow' camera option on these making them glow:

That's really cool. To be honest, I hadn't thought that Droseras could get that bright red, but apparently they can. Before seeing this thread, I hadn't paid any attention to Brevifolias, but now I feel compelled to get one. Curse yoooou!

Thread subbed. It seems like sundews are your forte. Very interesting collection. -Lock

Alright, really getting impatient. I want to ID these bad boys! I know I've got a bit of a wait ahead. A few of these may be ready to get ID'd tho. I know the first 2 pots are capensis, just have to figure out which flavor. If you look at something and think, 'Oh, that's got to be (insert drosera name here) because of this..' please, let me know!! My growlist link in my signature has the list of possible types.
Also check out my moss box at the bottom of the list, got any ideas on that?

Here goes. These are some the mystery seedlings that have been xplanted into small temp containers.

The things with the scalloped leaves is a liverwort of some sort...
Really great plants.
I suggest feeding the mystery seedlings more so that they will grow faster.
My D. burmanni seedlings have grown extremely fast for drosera now that I feed essentially every leaf...

I think you should join the ICPS and donate some D. brevifolia seeds!
I would love to get a hold of some of those....

Anyway, really nice plants!

thanks Lock!

The burmannii red was easy to spread out when they were about 4 weeks old, they snyderi took quite some patience. LOL. The green burmannii had a HUGE germination rate, plus I had no idea there were THAT many of them- They'll be seperated out as I pick out and transplant the largest ones to give the little guys room to spread their leaves.

I named my capensis Monster Mama for the contest, by the way. loooooooool
