Subject: Drosera

Drosera will live without sphagnum. In cultivation, though, many
temporate CP tend
prone to fungus invasion. Sphagnum is a natural anti-fungal agent.
It has the additional property of holding a lot of water, while at the
same time remaining
well oxygenated.
Many Drosera will grow in low nutrient environments without any
association with
sphagnum, but when the moss is present, they're often more robust, and
form huge colonies.
The dew is produced, along with digestive enzymes by a cell cluster
called "peltate glandular trichome". Trichomes are simply "plant
glands" and are NOT unique to CP.

does any of this help?
