Hi all,
Not a big sundew grower, more of a Sarracenia and Nepenthes guy. But i purchased a couple of D. Binata 'Marston Dragon' plants from a fellow forum member back in August. I don't think they liked the heat here in Louisiana and promptly appeared to have died. Literally a couple pots of dirt and dead black leaves and stems. However, i clung to hope that something beneath the surface might have been alive, and continued watering the "dead" pots, and gave them some light. Couple weeks ago started noticing some greenery poking up, then curly leaves, and finally some dewy leaves with bugs attached! Moral of the story.....don't give up on any of these plants! They are tough! ImageImageImage

My Marston hated the heat also. I'm going to need to find something different for them next summer.

Hi,

That's so nice that you didn't give up on the plants and they recovered, or should I say resurrected? :D

Yes, the plants were doing a good job of playing dead, for sure! Glad it was just an act!
