bogus postings/Drosera question

Looks like a classic example of something changing somewhere in the
network, so that a recipient of this list (or two in this case) is having
mail bounced back to the listserver, who for some reason is interpreting
it as a message to the list and sending it out to all of us. The same
thing is happening on the cacti_etc list, run out of the same listserver
as cp, again to an address at Probably raychem changed
their criteria for accepting mail directed into their network.

If you've gotten no response from the postmaster at raychem, then there is
little that any of us other than our Gentle Moderator, Rick, can do to
affect the situation. There are several actions Rick might choose to take.
The intended recipients themselves could also take action, but I'd bet -
since they aren't getting their mail - they just think the list has been
awfully quiet the last few days, and don't know anything is wrong.

Since I'm unwilling to set myself to nomail while I wait for someone to
fix it, I'll just have to grin and bear it.

Now to make this a legitimate CP posting instead of more noise. I'm looking
for more specific (systematic) cultural information on Drosera than I've yet
found. I've pulled back the archives from this list for the last 3-4 years
and read nearly every line, and also checked my meager references. Right now
I'm winging it with no problems, but suspect this is at least partially due
to a providential selection of highly tolerant plants.

What do you consider the best organized, most systematic treatment of
Drosera culture in particular? Are there any that, in addition to verbage
on particular plants, are especially good about grouping them by cultural
requirements/preferences? I.e., some want a dormant period, some prefer it
but will tolerate not having it, some - like capensis - seem just as happy
not having it. Within the same book, an author may for one species say that
a dormant period is needed for good growth, for another mention dormancy
without any indication of whether it's needed, preferred, or just occurs
for that species in its wild habitat, and not mention it at all for others
which seem to occur in areas I'd have to believe force winter dormancy. I
seem to wind up with similar questions on other cultural areas as well.

Any comments would be appreciated - if you don't feel this is worth list
bandwidth, please send to me directly.
