    Here are some pics from tonight. Someone mentioned how prolific D. capensis is. I tapped a flower stalk over this pot of peat/sand a while back, and this is what I got:


    Here's a mystery dew. I got it in a raffle at a BACPS meeting, and it was labeled D. ?:


    Here's D. graomogolensis. I can't even try to pronounce that:


    Here's D. admirabilis, forming a stem of sorts:


    And finally, D. tomentosa:

    could D. ? be D. rotundifolia?

    Did you grow the D. graomogelensis from seed? If so, were any special techniques involved?

    I also really like the D. sp?. And the D. tomentosa.

    I believe D. graomogolensis is pronounced: grau-MOG-o-len-sis. The D.? looks like a rotundifolia hybrid.

    Agreed Phil. I think it looks like that rotundifolia x capillaris hybrid that's been making the rounds out here.

    Rubra, no, I got it as a tiny plant. No special growing techniques. I have a drosera tray in my highland grow room. 55 nights, about 75-80 day temps. They sit about 5 inches under under four-foot cheap fluorescent tubes.

    I have found D. capensis seedlings in every sarr, dew, and VFT pot in my collection. And I was very careful with the seed pods too. now I just snip off the scapes before they have a chance to bloom.
    I really like the D. graomogolensis and the D. tomentosa. I gotta get some of those.
