I'm stealing my own thread and using it to update my collection. It has been a while since my last update, here's a TON of photos of most my plants!

Enjoy!

I've got them under a 4 bulb T5 ballast, 6400k. I have an ultrasonic humidifier that runs almost 24/7, so daytime temps are around 75f, and 66 at night, average 55-60% humidity during the day and about 80 to 90% at night which cuts down on waterings. I grow all of them as intermediates basically. A few of them got stressed when I went away for a week for work and the roomate didn't water my plants like I asked, but they're recovering!

Thanks everyone! I just remember first coming on the forum worried about every dying leaf. I lost a few plants this summer and with a lot of tweaking to my technique I have come along way!

AWESOME collection you've got there! Thanks for sharing.
Glad I'm not the only one with an addiction to this forum - check it more times then facebook :) :)
I've been playing with the idea of buying another kind of CP besides my favorite (VFT) - which would you say are the next best to buy and what makes them interesting in your opinion?

Honestly, after I bought a bunch of VFTs I started getting into Nepenthes, then Sundews, now butterworts. Honestly if you want something EXTREMELY easy to grow/propagate, then I highly suggest butterworts, theyre almost impossible to kill lol, plus theyre cool looking little plants.

I tend to keep my dew soil slightly more moist than any of my.other plants. I water with the tray method. Lots of light and nutrient poor soil. That's about it. Sundews are very easy to grow.

Thank you for getting back to me - cause i wasn't sure about the watering. I was spraying on top and watering (tray method) from bottom.

Be careful not to spray water onto the sundew itself, it weakens the sticky enzymes and it can stress the plant out if it is done frequently.

^Yeah this is also true, I was misting my dews until the leaves started turning brown, they've come back once I stopped doing that and started tray waterihng them again. Currently working on a hydroponic setup for my dews/pings.
