    Time for pics! Cept the flower hasn't opened yet, it's just really tall.




    I know, not the best pic of the plant, but I was in a hurry.

    Always had trouble getting mine to flower, and when it did I had no seed. I hope you have better success. Nice plant!

    mine is a regular bloomer, not quite as bad as capensis but ive got a new stalk every few months, main difference ive found between it and the other common Southern Africa species is that it has fewer seeds.

    oh and interesting note, do yah want to know where mine has been growing for the last 18 months? in a cell of a 4 pack like you buy bedding plants in. water level is quite often near the soil surface. never gotten around to transplanting it. perhaps this plant REALLY enjoys cramped very, very wet conditions?

    My plant isn't really cramped, and it wasn't in very good condition when I got it from Equilibrio Carnivorous Plants. It was in a 2-inch pot with algae-infested peat/perlite. I didn't have much room for it, nor room for a water dish, so it got very dry. Then, I had more room, repotted it into a peat/perlite mix (the perlite was washed REALLY well) and then it grew several inches taller. Later, when I went to a bog near my house, I took a handful of live LFS. I then put it into my D. madagascariensis's pot. It has been alive ever since I got it, sometime in March. I have heard of plants doing better with live LFS, and so maybe that's what made it flower.

    As we speak, I am getting a second chance. Another stalk is budding. Maybe some hand-pollinating this time?
