    Hello,

    I have taken lots of seed pictures in the last week. You can find them on the following links.

    http://www.utricularia.net/sonstiges/samenbilder2.htm <- with thumbnails, may take longer to load
    http://www.utricularia.net/sonstiges/samenbilder1.htm <- just links to reduce loading time

    Here are some pictures from the page:


    Drosera aliciae


    Drosera capillaris


    Drosera communis


    Drosera venusta


    Pinguicula grandiflora


    Utricularia beaugleholei

    Wow, Christian! This is highly valuable information to have - and save to favorites! Considering many of those tiny Drosera seeds tend to look alike, to the naked and untrained eye, this is an eye-opener. Great job!

    I think that should be pinned.
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    It's really cool. I always though all the drosera looked pretty much identical.

    Hello,

    Thanks for the nice comments!

    Drosera seeds can be really very different. I was also surprised as i looked at them the first time through a microscope.

    Please note, that i'm not sure about the identity of many of these seeds. I have not sown and grown them all myself. In many cases I have only taken pictures of the seeds and gave the seeds back.

    regards,
    Christian

    Do you mean the seeds or the plants? Surely you mean the seeds as there is a vast range of diversity of plant form in the Drosera genus.

    Nice work as always Christian.

    Drosera look pretty much all the same, hahaha! Thats a good one. Well, I suppose to an elephant all people look the same, but as with everything else in life, the more you focus, the more you see.
