    Here is a good description of "Florida red" and "Florida all red". They are both Drosera filiformis var. filiformis.

    Does anyone know where I can get the "All Red" form that doesn't go dormant?

    I think there might be some confusion here. "Florida all red" doesn't have to go dormant, but when given a winter photo period, it will. At least that's my understanding of this form.

    For example, you could grow it in a terrarium or other controlled environment and it would be just fine with a summer photo period all year long.

    Yes, Jeremy's interpretation is correct. I have grown my D. filiormis "Florida All-Red" plants from seed (I think from you Jeremy?) and they have grown indoors without dormancy for about 2 years now. They show no sign of slowing down after all this time. They're a great sundew for sure!

    manny, i may or may not have some viable seeds once the flowers ripen on this plant (flowers not shown):

    Thanks CPlantaholic, but the plant in your pic looks a lot like what I have. Does anyone have a pic of the Florida filliformis filliformis?

    I believe the ICPS Seed Back has "Florida All Red" seeds. I got mine off a random ebay auction.

    Yes, they look very similar, except this one does not go dormant at all if you keep it wet, warm, and give it a long enough photoperiod. I also got my seeds from ebay. As I said- this is an old pic but the pictured plant has been growing for 2 years without dormancy. It's possible that you have D. filiformis "Florida All-Red", but if the soil gets dry at some point or you have too little of a photoperiod, this could trigger dormancy.
