Okay folks. I was showing my D. scorpioides to a friend yesterday and found that (finally), after more than a year, they are all crowned with gemmae. I don't know how long i can wait to harvest these before they stunt and/or smother the plants, so if anyone knows i'd appreciate hearing.
In Slack's book "Insectivorous Plants and how to grow them" there are some amazing pygmy sundew flowers. I believe (the book is in a box elsewhere) that the flowers were orange/metallic, but i could be wrong. I do know that they were larger than the plants themselves.
So here's the deal: i want some pygmies with really big flowers and /or unusually colored flowers. I've done the whole nitidula/pulchella thing, including having them show up on their own in other pots, and they're cute, but i'm looking for unique to share my limited shelf space.
So if you have gemmae of some pygmies like that, please contact me.
If someone can confirm that it will be okay to leave these on the plants until after this coming Thanksgiving weekend, i'll wait until later to harvest them, which will allow me to accept a limited number of SASEs.
Edit: Another question... do these things have to "ripen" or something? They're very firmly attached right now.
