Anybody here grow King Sundews? I love em, they're definitely my favorite Drosera. I'm an apartment terrarium grower so I'm not big on space so I don't grow alotta stuff, but I have a "purebred" King with a couple of little offshoots and a 'Big Easy' Here's some pics of my 'Big Easy' at the NECPS show in October:

Yeah. I don't grow many dews, but regia is one that anyone who likes dews, really must have in their collections. I've got one mature specimen and 2 small plants that are growing really well now. I must sort out my pictures of them. Do you find big easy to be better than the normal clones in any way? Most people I have spoken to say it is no different to any other regia.
Well it's definitely more vigorous and much more tolerent of warm temps because both the BE & the Kings grow side by side making it very easy to compare. Grows fast but also doesn't grow as large I hear. Other than that, they look exactly the same. So for the East Coast of the US, the BE is a winner. Thankfully, the apartment where I live now accomidates the King as well being naturally nice & cool... Is there other clones out there that you know of?
I'll have to take some fresh pictures of my regia. I can't find the ones I have stored, they are amongst hundreds of other pics somewhere. I must start labelling the photos properly! I have found a photo of the flower from my regia when it opened this year, for some reason I relabelled that one so it was easy to find.
