Default Drosera Scorpiodes ( pygmy )

hey folks,

just wanted to share that after heeding to some advice from Ifurita to grow this sundew shaded from afternoon sun, my 2nd generation from gemmae is doing extremely well for the first time.

An update : my d.scorpiodes collapsed after being exposed to near a`noon sun. The angle of the sun shifted & i was too busy to notice so the poor things got burnt. I was unable to save them.

If anyone tries, make sure it only gets early morn` sun until about 10-11a.m. only. Location s/be in grassy area where you can flood with water if it gets too hot & the grass can retain water & make it a lil` cooler.

I`ll have to hunt for another pot or 2. anyone going to YG ? )
