    Hi Dave,

    I am not sure how the Brazillian species will perform under cultivation since I have never grown this, but I am assuming that the heat/dormancy response is a more temperate adaption. It may prove that the Brazillian plants will grow better under evenly warm temperatures without dying back.

    William, the place where the Brazilian brevifolia comes from (Salinas Beach, Rio Grande do Sul) has differentiated seasons as it is at the far south of Brazil. It is possible that it needs a cool season but time will tell.

    I also sowed some seed and until now some had germinated.


    I am also waiting for your list of publications about Drosera.. I really like this W.E.I.R.D sickness.

    Hi,

    I have taken some pictures of the seeds i got from this plant. Here they are :

    This is how i would expected them to to look like for Drosera brevifolia, so I think, Drosera brevifolia is the correct I.D.

    Christian,
    From all I have seen on this thread, I too would agree that your mystery plant appears to be Drosera brevifolia. Looks just like the very first CP I ever saw growing in the wild.

    I once stopped at a nursery near the coast in Mississippi, the only CP they were growing was Drosera capillaris. I explained to the proprieter that I was anxious to see CP in the wild. He told me that there were some growing right there behind the nursery. He did not know which species they were, but gave me directions to a location about 500 yards away under a large oak tree which was growing on an elongated berm of earth, about 20 feet high. The berm had been created to support train tracks on the level through the uneven terrain and to take it around a gradual curve. The berm was completely covered by small, short grasses and other small plants. It was almost entirely composed of fine white sand which was quite dry and powdery for several inches in depth. I immediately thought to myself how unlikely it would be to find any CP here, but the proprieter was fairly sure of himself so I took his advice and carefully searched under the shade of the oak tree in the grass and sand there. Lo and behold there was quite a colony of Drosera brevifolia there, and they looked so very much like the plant you opened this thread with.

    All seriousness aside, I earned those letters!

    I have promised to make a bibliography of some Key publications in the Genus Drosera that will make one about 75% W.E.I.R.D - if you can internalize the data. (It's not half as complicated as romance) For the other 25% you have to either be able to slither up a Tepui on your belly while dodging gold digging gun toting desperados, have memorized the entire Phyllogeny of plant evolution from the dawn of time to tomorrow, be a jet-setting herbarium sifting son of a sundew with laterite in your pores, or think L-ribosomal DNA markers and Bootstrap values are sexy.

    You may also need to learn German.

    I meet the 75% requirements just fine, but will leave the rest for those crazier, younger and richer than I. My expertise comes from study of the literature and much hands on experience in cultivating this genus, that's all.
