I've seen all of those other names plenty of times, but what are Catopsis and
Triphyophyllum. I've seen the latter mentioned in literature but have yet to
see a description. The former is completely unfamiliar. Could someone describe
these plants for those of us who are less advanced.

Several weeks ago I planted some Drosophyllum seeds and now a few have
sprouted. I was wondering if someone could answer a couple of
questions. I know that they can behave eithor as a biennial or as a
perennial. How would you treat the plants in order to acheive each
state? Growing medium, watering, humidity, light, etc. Do they flower
when growing perennially? Hopefully someone who has grown them
succesfully could tell me some of the secrets to success.
