    Drosera capensis 'Albino'

    Hi

    Have some seeds left over up for grabs for a SASE . These are Drosera capensis 'Albino'. Goes to the first person who posts to the thread that wants it.

    regards,

    z

    I'd be happy to take those off your hands! Been considering growing cp's from seed, and I'd like to start with something easy.

    Are these different than the cultivar, Drosera 'Albino'?

    No worries, I know there are now different forms of white flowered Drosera capensis. Apparently the cultivar Drosera 'Albino' has some pink to its tentacle glands, but there are other forms of Drosera capensis completely devoid of pink pigment and they are all green even under conditions of strong natural lighting. These forms, completely devoid of pink/red pigment have not yet been registered as a cultivar. I just wanted to be sure you were not referring to one of those.

    Ahh, this answers a question I have long had. I wondered why my D. capensis 'albino' had pink glands!

    Hey JC, do you have a link to an article or pictures showing this pure white cultivar? the subject has peaked some interest in the chats.

    One more question, actually... Is Drosera capensis 'Albino' the same as Drosera capensis "alba"?
    Last edited by Joseph Clemens; 02-28-2011 at 08:18 PM. Reason: N. A. - valid cultivars, such as D. 'Albino', are enclosed in single quotes and first letters are capitalized.
