I'm wanting to grow Drosera Regia in NZ, Wellington specifically but need a bit of advice. I don't plan on buying one just yet, but sometime later this year.
I assume you can sit the germinating Regia on a windowsill? I'm thinking sometime in the second half of Dec / start of summer (our temperature record from last year sits at or above 15 degrees on rainy days and some nights, to about mid twenties I think for days, which is apparently optimum).
What about moisture, water and osmocote? What should the Regia sit in, and what other requirements does it have? When does it enter adulthood?
My plan is to use a 50/50 mix of peat moss (left for nearly a week in water, washed with distilled water, strained and placed in a new bucket of distilled for a day?) and treated river sand (with no fertilizers / calcium that is, and washed 10-15 times of dust and such), as well as use the usual minced long fibre sphagnum.
Have I missed anything??
