Hope the others are just as happy and well, as with their caretaker!

I actually grow my South American drosera in two areas. The villosa and solaris were both grown in a chest freezer setup, along with some of my more picky SA and other dews and my epiphytic utrics. I keep temps in the freezer at 73 daytime high and 57 nightly low, with humidity ranging from 60-100%. The others were from an area right next to the freezer, but without regulated temperatures. I'd say that they probably experienced daily highs in the high 70s to low 80s and nightly lows of around 60-70. Humidity is overall lower as well. They are growing with my pygmy sundews and some more miscellaneous dews. All of my SA species are under Marshydro 300w lights, around 12-15 inches away.
At the moment, I can't say that I see a difference between the growth of the SA dews that I have in the chest freezer vs the ones out in the open air. Both conditions seem to be working well for them. Essentially, don't waste money on an elaborate climate-controlled setup if you just want to grow a few South American drosera! I will say that I have never tested some of my rarer, less robust species (e.g. roraimae, grantsaui, some forms of latifolia) in open-air conditions, so I don't know how they would react to a less-controlled climate.Chest Freezer.JPGMarshydro 2.JPG
