    LTB Drosera capensis varities

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for verified varieties of capensis seeds (or live plant, seeds preferred).
    I'd be willing to pay reasonably for the following varieties/locality/genre.

    Drosera capensis-- Paul Debbert Munich Germany "Giant".
    Drosera capensis-- Bain's Kloof
    Drosera capensis-- Vogelgat Nature Reserve
    Drosera capensis--"All red" Gifburg locality, or extremely dark red plant from cultivation.
    Drosera capensis-- "Compact Rosette"

    Any interesting forms, the ones listed, or other plants you could tell me about I would consider. I'll need some given evidence that the plant is actually that form, whether the evidence is pictures of mother plant, receipts from credible nurseries/importers. etc. I'm willing to compromise.

    These will be used in a cultivation effort to understand the different growth and plant characteristics among the varities/localities/genres.

    Further efforts (by me) will be made to cross these plants to result in new/ different variations.

    I'm sorry millipede, I was going to get the compact rosette, it was in the shopping cart and everything from a European source, unfortunately the cost of bringing in seeds was extravagant.

    I'm interested to see how this all goes and will be following. The Bains Kloof looks awesome, I want one now too. I have a capensis "All Red", will let you know if it flowers.

    Thank you Randoja, this project has put up a surprising pretty penny, but most of it went towards the terrarium they'll be growing in.

    I do need more "All Red" seeds for sure!!

    I'll have extremely limited Blains Kloof, that's one of the plants I'll be mass propagating after the growth observation is done after a year-2 years.

    I have some D. capensis red form seeds. I've been feeding mine a lot while it flowered so it's not super red right now, but it gets extremely deep red in good light with less food.

    I've also got 2 small D. capensis Baineskloof plants. I'll be feeding them up a lot in the next month or two. I could get you a leaf cutting sometime after the first of the year, or a plantlet a bit after that. I realize that that's a little while from now, but it's an option if you're interested. Hit me up on PMs if you wanna chat further.
