    The December 2005 issue of Carnivorous Plant Newsletter 34(4):100-105 has a fantastic article by Eric Schlosser, Notes on some little known carnivorous plants from Madagascar. Included in that article is a discussion about finding Drosera humbertii. I have scoured the Web for several years and have never found a photo of D. humbertii. Eric was kind enough to send me the photo below.

    Another photo can be found in the CPN article.

    I saw the article and loved the photos. I like the super tall stems.

    One of the things I found interesting about the article was the possibility that some of the very tall Drosera humbertii were growing since 1955. I don't know how long Drosera live in the wild, but that seems pretty old.

    At least it doesn't look like a D. Spatulata!
