"Drosera adelae likes hot and humid....Drosera schizandra hates hot but demands humid. The available clones of Drosera prolifera like warm and humid but tolerate cool." -- John Brittnacher (posted on ICPS)

When they first arrived.

That's two years ago. I tried a few things since I started that thread.

1. Grown the species at my balcony - it grew so well. Then died over two days. :(/>
2. Grown it at my office - it grew so slowly (due to lack of light). And still died in the end. :wacko:/>

So this time, I shall try to give it cool and bright conditions. :lol:/>

Comparatively, the D. prolifera is already sending out new leaves and new flower stalk since they arrived. The D. schizandra is still sulking. I've seen them at my friend's greenhouse floor...beautiful!

A member here grew D. prolifera in his garden...nights were about 25C. I grew the species at my balcony and because the nights are sometimes 30C, it died. Hopefully these will do well with the cooler weather this year end. ^_^/>
