    About a year ago, I got some seeds from BobZ, and he included D. capensis 'Alba' seeds. When I planted them, some appeared to be 'Alba', while others, as you can see in the pics, were not. Could they be 'Broad Leaf'?

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Hi Drosera36, although i havent had the opertunity to grow or own all the diffrent varietys of Capensis those are some very beautiful babies you have there and i have LOTS baby capensis red that look like that even though they are tiny pin dots at this time. But i can't tell you exactly what type that is since im so new to this. Im sure theres lots people here that can help you identify which variety this may be. Awsome pics you took and very pretty baby dews..

    i dont think they are albino, could be an accidental cross with albino and the typical form. i grow mine side by side and it would be easy enough for a bug to do a cross pollenation on a couple flowers. Bob is pretty meticulus on his labeling so that would me my guess as to what happened

    Hi Ben. Interesting. The seeds that I sent to you in August 04 indeed came from a scape from a D. 'Albino' plant. My D. capensis plants all grow everywhere like weeds and I have never messed around with them. I call the ones with no coloration and white flowers D. 'Albino' because it fits the cultivar description. I have never tested the seed from these plants to determine whether all seed result in white flowered plants. That would be an interesting experiment, which is perhaps what you are observing.

    I do not know how common cross pollination is in capensis plants. I do know that they are self-fertile -- completely isolated single plants produce viable seed without any intervention.

    In November 04, Rose (Copper) sent me a plant from a D. capensis ‘Albino’ x typical breeding that she did. Copper wrote that some of her plants have pink flowers, intermediate between 'Albino' and typical. I still have that plant and it looks identical to a D. 'Albino' (white flowers and no red coloration anywhere).

    Kinda looks like D. Intermedia to me. D. Capensis leaves usually are more rectangularish.

    All baby Drosera in my experience look nothing like the adults. So, I am sure it is not D. intermedia.

    That's D. capensis alright. D. intermedia has rounder leaves on longer, thinner petioles (at least the form I grow). Looking good Drosera36! And very nice camera work there!

    Cheers

    Thanks for all the compliments, guys. BobZ, I suppose we'll just have to wait til it flowers to see what it is. And, how would I go about transplanting this little guy?
