Goodafternoon,

I was snapping some pics of my collection today and I figured I would share.

I am now shooting with a Nikon D5100 so the photo quality is a bit better.

D. Capillaris "belem":
Image

D. regia:
Image

D. venusta:
Image

D. sessifolia:
Image

D. filliformis "florida red":
Image

D. binata multifida extrema:
Image

D. burmanii "beerwah, australia":
Image

Some S. minor on the back of my sundew shelf:
Image

Stylidium adnatum:
Image

Excuse these photos, they were taken through the plastic of my lowland area...

D. schizandra:
Image

D. paradoxa:
Image

D. ordensis:
Image

U. reniformis:
Image

I also got a macro lens which helps a lot for closeups:

D. paradoxa:
Image

D. ordensis:
Image

D. sessifolia:
Image

D. burmanii "beerwah, australia":
Image

Thanks for looking!

Thanks!

Someone on another forum wanted to see my setup so I figured I would post the photos here as well:

Great plants and pictures. The D. ordensis looks like its glowing to me. Its such a neat looking plant.

I also love D. ordensis, it grows fast and the leaves maintain really good coloration even with less light than the rest of my dews. It also seems to be very hardy for a petiolaris complex plant.

Plus it's fuzzy and I can set the white balance on my camera off of it because it is such a bright white!

Unfortunatley the white fuzz which is also water repellent makes it very difficult to float them in water to get cuttings to strike so I have not yet succeeded in propagating it or any other of my petiolaris plants...

It's a shame that they are not readily available in the United States as I think this species and other petiolaris complex species would gain popularity with those who have very warm conditions where they live. I am lucky enough to live in Canada where the species are readily available for low prices.

Thanks! But I am still learning, I just started the whole CP game about a years ago and have some major gaps in my skill. I just don't show the crappy plants online!

I took some more photos a few days ago...

Drosera capensis, one of the most underrated sundews if you ask me:

Image

A teeny Drosera slackii seedling, I only got about 6% germination:

Image

Drosera burmanii "beerwah, australia":

Image

Some petiolaris, since they are one of my photographical focuses:

D. ordensis:

Image

D. paradoxa:

Image

D. falconeri:

Image

D. derbyensis has never done really well for me but it's still alive in the mediocre conditions I give them so I can't really complain:
