Hello everyone. Is there a particular Drosera that flowers only at night
or for only a couple of hours?? I have this plant in a terrarium with
Pings and S. Purpea, and each time a new flower is half way out at night,
I wake up to find that it has sunken back into the bud...And I never see
the flower in full. My guess is that it is the temperature going down to
60-65 or so at night in the room (I'm getting a gardenia to bloom as
well). Tonight I am going to maintain a temp of 75F to see what happens.

Also, does leaf growth slow down when the plant is trying to flower?
Thank you for your help.
