Drosera spatulata

Ok, I have a Drosera spatulata Jardine River that bloomed. Like the only other bloom (Drosera Tokaiensis), this one was pressed near the light. It’s looking more and more like it may be light intensity that’s the trigger. I’ve placed several stalks right next to the light. If we consistently get blooms next to the light and none away from the source, we have probably found our answer.

It’s official. The light intensity/PPFD triggers the bloom. I placed a bunch of blooms to be right up against the LED strip light (Barrina 42 W, white LED…not sure of the temperature in Kelvin) and almost all of those spikes have open blooms on them.

So, if you are having trouble getting your drosera to bloom, move them closer to your light source.

I really need a TA-DA emoji!
