    Winter buds--would that be the same thing as hibernacula? I haven't seen those yet. I'm in the process of buying a small piece of property with a cabin that I know has some D. rotundifolia...I've probably missed them this season...but there's always next time.

    A few days ago I got a lead on a new (to me) bog "...that's loaded with all kinds of those sundews" that'll give me some new hunting grounds for x obovata--the hunt is on!

    Peter--that'd be great! Science in action...

    Hibernacula is the botanical term for "winter buds"

    Jimscott I think the plants would do well under those conditions. My suggestion is that if you get winter buds from any of your plants, you cull them and not pass them on as "Ivan's Paddle", and the same would be true for Ivan's D. rotundifolia "Evergrow" which is also going about, (which btw is not a registered cultivar name unless someone decides to publish it as should be done and Mr. Snider won't).

    Hybrids often express qualities of both parents at times, and even if the plant is not a cultivar, it is treated as such by the community, so the standard form which commonly held as "a non-dormant form of D. anglica" should apply here as well and dormant buds would be out.

    Peter, those are very beautifully grown examples of Ivan's Paddle!

    Understood... and assuming I get new plants via vegetative propogation, those would be appropriate for giving away as Ivan's Paddle?

    Sure, as lonf as they are tropical in habit and not temperate. It's a moot point since Ivan resists publication, but a good idea is a good idea even if not widely embraced. Ivan has repeatedly stated this is a tropical form. I believe leaf cuttings should preserve the cultivar quality, but it isn't always so. For example, I have had offsets of D. dialatopetiolaris on the SAME plant looking completely different. I don't know how these things work, but there is no sense in muddying the water by sending out a supposed tropical form that forms temperate hibernacula. Sedd is another issue and can express either qualities of the parents. They are very beautiful Drosera.

    One thing that confuses me, and I'm sure that I am missing a small, yet imortant fact, is that with plants like D. adelae & paradoxa, where you can't pollinate two fowers from the same plant to produce seed, yet can do so with two flowers from different clones. Aren't the genotypes the same, since they are clones?
