    theres a couple I haven't heard of amongst those, but most are the usual plants . I haven't heard of D. formosa, Sarracenia formosa I have but not a drosera. It is a shame the seller only shows a picture of vfts for that one!!! not a lot of help. I haven't heard of D. wateri either.

    Yeah I emailed the seller about D. affinis seed. The only thing I could figure on the D. wateri is perhaps it's [/I]D. intermedia[I]
    He has VFT pics on almost all the Drosera auctions. That's really bad. It's proly all Cape or spat seed [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Hmmm. Do we know anyone on this forum living in Mountain Home, Idaho?
    Perhaps D. wateri is a mispelling of D. 'Watari'?

    Hi,

    Drosera lovellae, formosa and nagatomo are forms of Drosera spatulata. Drosera "curvispata" ist most likely misspelled and should read Drosera curviscapa. The rest are all valid species.

    I had to do a search on some of the names, and seem to be alot more aware of complex crosses now. I do think however, that as rare in cultivation, as some of these are it's a little hard to believe without decent pic's

    OK well I've been in contact with this grower, and it seems to be legit. I'm getting some seed from him, and will let you know how it grows [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Seems to be a nice guy with appropriate knowledge, and resources.
