    You'll find there won't be seeds on that D. dichotoma. Currently, only a handful of D. binata varieties are self-fertile; all others need separate clones.
    On a different note: now I feel like I really want a spath x platy. Got a lot of other platy hybrids now, but that one's looking nice too

    Thanks, that's good info to know, none of the sources I checked mentioned that. On the other hand, that also means I'm now free to try some flower stalk cuttings! The spath x platy is a real winner, easy to grow and the pitchers get noticeably larger with every leaf.

    Finally figured out what's been munching on my capensis...


    N. fusca "flared peristome"



    N. talangensis x robcantleyi



    N. spathulata x glabrata




    N. burkei x hamata


    N. spathulata x platychila




    D. capensis 'Albino'


    D. burmannii seedlings


    D. venusta seedlings


    D. dichotoma 'Giant'


    D. hartmeyerorum progressing nicely


    D. scorpioides


    S. x "Willow Creek"



    S. purpurea ssp. purpurea


    D. burkeana? Only seeds will tell.

    Update: I've done a bit of poking around, and I've found that my "D. burkeana" seeds came from a batch of plants raised from seed purchased from Silverhill Seeds in 2002. Silverhill Seeds operates out of South Africa and collects seed in situ, so although my plants may still be mislabeled D. pilosa or something similar, they are not D. tokaiensis or D. spatulata. Phew...

    From that angle, they no longer look like my tokaiensis. They do, however, look like a natalensis relative, so it's in the ZA ballpark. Not burkeana though...

    It's not D. spatulata or D. tokaiensis, which is good enough for me. I'll probably be calling it Drosera sp. "South Africa" or something until I can get this all cleared up. I got the seeds in a giveaway from TF member Afrodisa, and his sources appear accurate; any input?

    Sorry for the long lack of updates...my setup has been undergoing some pretty significant changes in preparation for some slightly more temperamental plants that I'm expecting. I'll probably get photos of those up once they're looking presentable, so in like, a few months. In the meantime, I've procured a grow rack and moved most of the more delicate subtropical Drosera and my intermediate Neps there, where they seem to be happy so far.

    N. burkei x hamata - definitely one of the nicer hamata hybrids out there.



    N. veitchii "Highland striped" x burbidgeae from EP


    N. spathulata x glabrata juxtaposition:


    N. spathulata x platychila


    N. boschiana x glandulifera


    N. fusca "flared peristome"


    N. singalana x aristolochioides


    N. ventricosa


    D. capillaris


    D. burmannii


    D. sessilifolia


    D. hartmeyerorum


    Big pot o' capensis


    S. purpurea ssp. purpurea


    Not D. burkeana


    S. rubra ssp. rubra


    S. "Willow Creek"



    S. leucophylla


    S. flava var. rugelii? Received as a light-starved S. flava var. maxima in a trade, which it's obviously not.

    My D. Burkeana looks kinda like yours so im not sure yrs is a miss I.D. - but then again they all kinda look like a form of Spathulata to me but with more or less paddle's. I'll pay a photo of mine see if it matches up to urs then maybe we will kno what u have lol Goodluck
