My fully recovered drosera!

by Sreta » Thu Dec 01, 2011 6:44 am

About 2 months ago I posted for help saving my near-dead drosera spatulata "Ruby Slippers." The improvement after I fixed my mistakes was so dramatic I wanted to post before and after pictures. I'm not a great photographer, but that's pretty close to the actual red color of the plant (especially the first "after" picture).

Before: The plant almost died due to lack of water and sun :(

After: I've never seen it this red before :)

Great job recuperating the D. 'Ruby Slippers'! :D
Drosera spatulata 'Ruby Slippers,' a registered cultivar, is one of the few cultivars that grow true from seed, so if you allow your plant to seed, you can sow the seed and have dozens, hundreds or maybe even thousands of little D. 'Ruby Slippers' babies! (Drosera seed is so tiny (but grows so well) that you can easily get at least hundreds of seed from one multiflowered flowerstalk.)

Anyway, great job of plant intensive care! :mrgreen:
