Little ‘Dews

by CaRNUCOPIA

Just thought I’d share one of my successes with you. I grew a bunch of different kinds of sundews (mainly tuberous) from seed. I only got three different species of the sundews to actually come up. The one pictured below that came up is Drosera menziesii. The other two types of sundews that came up were Drosera peltata and D. capensis red. At this point the D. menziesii is the largest and, therefore, the best to photograph with my lil’ camera. Now I have to keep my fingers crossed that they don’t go dormant too soon and that they’ve developed enough of a tuber to come back for more next year!

Cute lil bugger, eh? It’s about the diameter of a pea.
