    Drosera x "Watari" winner - the griffin $11

    This medium-sized Drosera x "Watari" is up for bid:

    (you will receive the larger of the 2 plants)

    D. x "Watari" is a cross between D. anglica and D. spatulata, and is very similar to D. x nagamotoi.
    This plant grows well in pretty much any medium- I've had great success with both peat: sand mixes as well as live sphagnum.
    Treat it as a tropical plant- it has not gone dormant on me for over 2 years so far, and has done nothing but thrive.
    It tends to self-propagate a ton in live sphagnum as you can see in bottommost picture.
    The soil can be kept waterlogged or moist, and it doesn't seem to affect growth- very adaptable.
    Flowers should be self-fertile, but I've never been able to get seeds from this plant- likely because the flowers get overheated under my light fixtures. Also, I'm not completely sure that the seeds would retain the "cultivar" status.
    The good news is that leaf cuttings are extremely easy!!!

    Here are some pics of the parent plant:


    This is what this plant could look like in about a year and a half- it tends to clump!:



    Starting bid: $2
    Winner will pay $5 for shipping and packaging costs.

    This cultivar has not been published yet, so that is why the name is in quotations.
