    Joseph Clemens named it wonder if he is lurking on here?

    Hey Joseph is your still alive?
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    I would not count too much on that cultivar of D. regia.

    For me it is obvious, that the ICPS has given Drosera 'Big Easy' a status as a registered cultivar while being sloppy with the official rules for cultivar registrations.

    The rules for cultivar registration are based on international standards, written down in:
    http://www.ishs.org/sci/icracpco.htm

    "Ease of cultivation" ist absolutely NO reason to give a plant a cultivar status. What is the definition of "easy"? The cultivation conditions of J. Clemens at HIS home? Oh yes, that's obviously easy for him. But for me, my cultivation conditions at MY home are easy. And I bet, they are not the same.

    Instead a new cultivar must be distinguishable from others by simply looking at it. It must be uniform in its overall appearance.

    Otherwise a cultivated plant is not worth to be a "registered cultivar".

    Here is something of the cultivar rules explained in plain English, without being too technical or botanical:
    http://www.ishs.org/sci/icraname.htm

    I'm wondering how Drosera 'Big Easy' has made it through the official cultivar registration without being refused.

    As I can read in the official cultivar registration, the registrant has even not managed his plant to flower before writing the cultivar description:
    http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn...3_89.html#easy
    > ... never flowered or even initiated a flower stalk...

    How can someone tell the plant is easy in cultivation while he cannot cultivate a plant to show flowers each year?

    That's a big contradiction and in my opinion ICPS should withdraw the registration for Drosera 'Big Easy', it's just too questionable.
