Very expensive sundew and hard to propagate too... I have paradoxa and ordensis. Fortunately, they are easy to grow in our climate :)/>

Pricing can vary to $5 to $50 per plant, depending on the species as well as whether they are tc-ed or seed grown.

Propagation is simple with high success rate if you are willing to sacrifice one plant for the rip-apart-into-clumps method. If I can find space under my T5 setup, I'll be doing it this rainy season.

Sure. But they didn't do well for you too? I would have thought your place is more conducive with higher humidity.

The plants are colouring up very nicely but the Sony DSC cannot get the correct white balance so I'll leave it to your imagination if the tone should be more yellow or blue. :lol:/>

I managed to reproduce some d.derbyensis by leaf pulling method. The plantlets are about 5-7cm in diameter.

Note: PM me if you are interested, so that I can bring along the pre-ordered items during the Hortpark plant sales this Saturday (6/9/2014) for delivery.
