    I got an message from a German friend and he gave me a list of the following plants which should grow there :

    N. distillatoria

    D. burmanni, indica & peltata

    U.aurea, australis, stellaris, gibba, reticulata, scandens, polygaloides, graminifolia, bifida, minutissima, hirta, uliginosa, caerulea, striatula & moniliformis (endemic, tuberous!)

    -------

    Rob,

    "... A private nursery or a Government agency such as the Coconut Research Institute?..."
    It's aprivat nursery, I forgot the name of the village nearby for the moment :-(

    "...Anyway, I hope you make it over and I would be happy for you to visit us if you wish..."

    If I wish ? What a question ! :-) Of course I do !

    "...We have some Nepenthes and a few Heliamphora in the nurseries..." yes, "some" is a very unspecific word *g* How many people are there in the world who grow more Nepenthes than you ?

    Hey Rob,

    Could you please tell us more about the Drosera there? Also, what other Drosera have you come across in your travels? I would be very interested in obtaining seed of anything you find as long as there's a location attached. Please email me at sundew@hotmail.com if this is possible.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Sorry for the slow reply to the question asked earlier, I've been away for a few days.

    No, I have not yet seen any Drosera here. D. burmanii used to be common in Hong Kong where I used to live and I'm not surprised to hear it grows here too. I propbably haven't been to the right places. Sri Lanka has a remarkably diverse range of terrains for such a small island. Perhaps Martin will get to see more of it when he gets here than I do!

    I'll look out for the Utrics and as I see them I'll photograph them and post the photos so you utric experts can identify them.
