Drosophyllum is probably my favorite sticky CP. I just love how the sweet small will fill a green house, and in the summer how hundreds of insects become entangled the tentacles. It is definitely one of the more effective carnivorous plants.
Beautiful photos Jeremiah. It seems like you have great success with this very interesting plant.
After reading about an excursion to view and study drosophyllum in their native habitat, at bestcarnivorousplants (dot com), with their detailed descriptions of the soil and environmental conditions, I feel encouraged and somewhat hopeful that I might be able to germinate a few seeds and grow a few of this plant myself.
Anyway, thanks for posting these great photos, and also the stunning macro photos in the Drosera category of the forum.
Jeremiah Great photos, could you share cultural info, for example I see a sarracenia sitting next to the drosophyllum, I assume this means that they all sit in water?? I was also under the false impression that these guys could not grow so close to each other?? Not true; there seems to be many misconceptions regarding these plants; very nice plants!!! regards ed
I dug 2 seeds out of the fridge that I did not know were there and recently sowed them, they were harvested in December of 2005 but when I cut the tips of the one seed (I used GA3 for the other) it was still white on the inside so it seems that there is still hope.
Jeremiah, I'm also interested in how you grow your drosophyllum so well! That's the most of those plants I've ever seen in one picture!
BTW.. does anyone know if you can re-use GA3 solutions?
