    Need D. Rotundifolia

    Ok, I know this is one of the most common, if not THE most common, carnivore out there, but I cannot find it anywhere. There is some in a bog down the street from my house, and they thrive here. So I was wondering if anyone out there might have a spare plant. I don't have much to trade, but if you have a spare plant, pm me, and I'll see if I can find something you want. Look at my growlist.

    Is the bog on private property? Perhaps the owner will let you collect a couple with permission.

    I had some seeds from the ICPS seedbank (Mason Co, WA) as I recall, but they haven't sprouted yet, and I have sown or given away already what I had.

    No, they are definitely NOT going to let me collect a couple. It is owned by a Land Trust. I'm actually in Thurston County, WA, but Mason Co. is not far from here. And I probably know where those seeds came from. I have to tell you though, the bog down the street is the first one I have ever seen, and MAN!!! That's why I want a rotundifolia. They are gorgeous. Even if I have to start from seed, that would be ok. The ones in the bog were like 5 inch rosettes. Do they normally get that big in cultivation?

    I have some 'Charles Darwin' seedlings but they're still too young to ship. :/ The reason I got them is because they don't require stratification (or dormancy I guess).

    Wait a minute.. 5 inches?! In diameter!? I didn't think they got that big!

    Oh yea, these things are AT LEAST that big. Someone told me they could be anglica, but they're not. They are roties. So I take that as a " don't expect to get 5 inches in cultivation"?

    Yea, when I went down there, they wouldn't let me get that close to the sphagnum mat, and only let me google around for about five minutes. I felt like I was going to find Area 51.

    I have some 'Charles Darwin' (the Drosera rotundiforlia cultivar formerly known as "Evergrow") seedlings too - same situation - they're 2.5 months old at the most and not ready for transplanting.

    Not many people grow these because (except for 'Charles Darwin') they spend a lot of the time in dormancy or a semi-dormancy.

    Ivan Snyder brought one of his 'Charles Darwin' plants to one of the LACPS meetings - I don't recall how big it was - maybe 3-4 inches across. He crossed a couple California forms of rotundifolia to produce this hybrid. See the ICPS cultivar description.

    The Washington forms may grow larger.
