    Yesterday it was 75 degrees and very sunny, today it is 54 degrees, very cloudy, and lots of rain. What better way to cheer yourself up on a rainy day than to take cp pics? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Finally caught my drosera spatulata in flower:

    Thanks for the complement. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    It was about 3 inches in diameter when i got it. It flowered when it was 4 inches. All i needed was one flower stalk, just one! I pollonated, and alot of the seed scattered in alot of my other pots. It looked cool at first, lots of babies in all of the pots, but babies don'y stay babies forever [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] They got Bigger, and Bigger, and Bigger ... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] I had to start plucking them out and getting more pots for the babies. well, that got annoying, so I started clipping the flower stalks. I'm guessing it got so big mostly from clipping all of the flower stalks, they seem to take alot of energy from the plant. I also feed it almost more than any other of my plants. It's on a south or south-west faceing windowsill, with lots of sunlight and humidity. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Odd thing is, it usually flowers all the time, but I haven't seen a flower stalk since October 2002! I know, I know, Capensis usually stops flowering from Fall-Spring, But I'm starting to miss the flower stalks and seeds and babies.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    The pygmy flower puts this plant as one of the nitidula species or ssp.'s, or a hybrid with this as the parent, possibly Lake Badgerup.
