    Unhappy

    I just read something about a Drosera venusta "coccicaulis". I know there is a D. coccicaulis, and a D. venusta, but what do both names together entail? Are they both basically the same plant?

    don't feel like you're being ignored, from what I've seen folks are wary of trying to nail this down and it's still a topic of some debate.

    All's I know is that whatever I have in my collection as "coccicaulis" is supposedly neither that NOR venusta but no-one will say what they think it actually IS

    Hi,

    as already said before, D. "coccicaulis" is a form of venusta, that was collected at an unknown location. The name is not valid, but should nevertheless be used to distinguish it from other collections/forms of D. venusta.

    What's supposed to be different about "coccicaulis"? Does the size or color differ?

    I have 3 plants I grew from seed given to me as "D. venusta." Beautiful plants. I showed it to Tamlin and he said he'd call it "coccicaulis". I'll try to remember to post a pic.
