I have decided to offer seeds from an odd hybrid which formed with D. dielsiana. After discussing the possibilities with my associates, a tentative conclusion was reached that the other parent could be D. collinsiae.
Please be sure to keep the name straight, or it will cause some confusion in later years, and I would not like to see future generations of growers going as bald as Bugweed from the scratchin of their noggins. I have no plans on registering this plant, there are enough goofy named South African mutts floating around.
I have about 10 packets of seed, first come, first served.
Incidently, this is an example of how ID confusion can arise within private collections. Due to the lack of any reproductive barriers with many of the South African species, events of uncontrolled hybridization are always possible.
It's also a reason that growers should always check with their source to be sure their plants accurately reflect the appearence of the parent plants BEFORE they distribute the seed, and even then, there are no assurances that seed from these plants will remain true.
I don't know how the F2 generation seedlings will turn out, and ask that if you grow the material with success that you will update me on this.
Seeds are free for a sase, or will trade for bits of interesting minerals (I will compensate for any shipping!)
I also have available on request seed of Drosera binata should anyone be interested. Let me know and I'll throw in a packet of this as well.
