    Very cool! How big do the Sundews get in New York? Ours here are very small (about 2 - 3 inches across, max). I love the way they glisten in the sunlight! Apparently, so do the bugs.

    Drosera intermedia(the sundew that I found) stays small. They are about 3-5" wide, no more. D. intermedia has small lance shaped leaves (the pretty ends with sticky hairs, who would have thought those were leaves? )

    Nice thread, Tindo! And good explanation, Pat - I really enjoy learning more about the taxanomic side of orchids. Thanks!
