my drosophyllum

by mikefallen13 » Wed Jul 06, 2011 12:45 am

I've only had it for a few weeks but it definently very happy!

I've been growing it outside in full sun all day with temps up to 85 degrees during the day.I've been having to water it almost every other day. The only other thing I've had to do is protect it from rain.
Thanks, Michael Fallen

Very nice! Where did you get it from? I've been wanting one but my attempt from seed failed.

I got mine from California carnivores but Sarracenia northwest sells them too.

Shimizoki, the unnamed sundew you got frm lee's is certainly a drosera filiformis. Drosophyllum is very sensitive to root disturbance and normally dies when repotted.
