    Pygmy ID in flower

    I had an accident over the winter which resulted in the de-labeling and even death of many of my pygmy sundews I received in a gemmae swap. A couple of the stronger ones pulled through, but were left nameless. One of them has recently sent up a flower stalk.

    The list of possibilities:
    pygmaea-Tasmania
    D. callistos
    pygmaea (tricaullis)

    If the petals are pink (which appears that they are) then i go with:
    Drosera nitidula x occidentalis subsp. australis(?) (aka "Carbarup")
    http://droseragemmae.com/images/carbarupf.jpg

    p.s. : don't start to count the stigmas because in this case they can vary in number.

    pygmaea (tricaullis)....what is that?
    Best regards,

    Hmmm, that's not on my list of trades, of course, somebody I traded with may have been mistaken. I might have gotten occidentalis x pulchella too, I'm not sure though, I accidentally deleted some of those PMs.

    incredible shot of the stigmas in that first one!
    lol, i completely mislabeled my gemmae from jimscott- to a species that wasn't even closely related!
    I think i have my ids taken care of now...
    That is too funny.

    Oh no... don't say that! I'll get nailed! If it came from me, it came from someone else and had the name "palacaea tricaullis". It might be the same ones in this pot, now taken over by a capensis. I've got flower scapes, so hopefully one will bloom while I'm home.

    I have the PMs to prove it, you can't deny anything! Haha.
