I have a bunch of Ludisia discolor shoots to trade for Drosera, Seeds, Whatever…
Let me know!
I’m quite sure that anyone on this site can grow Ludisia without any problem:

The growing conditions are easy. You can use most moisture retaining, well draining media mixes. i like LFS for some but have used bark mixes, charcoal, coco husk, perlite, peat, you name it... It can grow! In your terrarium, windowsill, wherever! :D
Warm ( 75-85 F )
Humid ( 70% + )
Low Light ( 1,500 lux ) 2x 4’ Fluorescent bulbs

The plant itself is a terrestrial orchid, commonly known as a jewel orchid. It creeps along, often times overhanging the pot, sending out one to several new growths from the main stem after blooming. The bloom is more spectacular when you have a large group of them but none the less, the foliage is main attraction!
I have a lot of mature shoots to find home for, some sending out flower spikes right now!
Like i said, just let me know, a good home is the important thing :geek:

I have drosera capensis and a couple drosera rotundifolia. I could also buy a drosera of another type from Matt and have him send it to your address if you wish. I'd like the most mature plant you have with a flower spike! My friend LOVES orchids.

I only have capensis, of the drosera you mentioned. The rotundifolia sounds nice though. I was thinking of trading 1:1 Mature, in spike shoot for ( whoever ). Being that the stems are kind of tough i will ship the plants/cuttings in sphagnum. This will help a lot on postage and also lets you set it up however you want. Let me know if this is OK for you and i'll get it together :D and or want more than one.
