Looking for D. Camporupestris

I have some, although they are only just starting to take if after recovering from shipping in November. They seem pretty sensitive to it, though not like villosa. I may have one to spare in the next few months if you are willing to wait. The only other people I know who grow it in the US are w03 and a guy on the Facebook groups.

Good to know. Forgot I was part of a related FB group, will check it out.

Edit: can you link me to the guy selling it on FB?

Yeah, I won't have any ready anytime soon either lol.
Johnny's plants look super nice (like usual :p) but I'm not sure if he has divisions or any other material to sell.

Not to sound condescending, but if you haven't grown other South American Drosera first, I'd highly recommend you test your conditions on some of the pickier species first before trying D. camporupestris. It's really a rather tricky plant.

If we're talking about live plants, D. camporupestris tends to arrive in worse shape than most other species and takes quite a while to recover. Most of the ones you can get from big vendors are also tissue-cultured, and tend to be delicate. The first time I bought this species all were dead on arrival. The second time, they arrived fine but I lost a lot in acclimation. This species turned out to be way more difficult than I had expected, even having grown other South American sundews.

Good to know, thank you for the insight. I'm in the middle of trying to acquire some Adelae, so hopefully that'll give me some experience.
