    This dew came as a stow away with a sarr that JBL sent me. It just shot up a flower spike and I would like to ID it so I know what to call the seeds when I dispurse them to terraforum.


    Thanks everyone

    Looks like a D.filiformis to me.

    most definitely, looks like (if that bit of red in the pic is not a mirage) it would be D.filiformis ssp. filiformis- if there's no red, it is D.filiformis var. tracyii but I would go with the former- if the flowers are pinky-purple you'll have a pretty reliable ID

    Drosophyllum! J/K. That's a filiformis, just not red or California Sunset.

    D.filiformis ssp. filiformis is what the tag will say when I get around to putting one by it. Tamlin agrees that is what it is too. There is a red tint to it, and its growing in sull sun in the same bog as some of my Sarrs. So I look forward to pollinating the flowers and getting seed to share. Woo hoo I have flowers popping up everywhere!

    DON'T TOUCH THOSE FLOWERS!!!!!!!! They are self fertilizing, and will drop a ton of seed. Dies back for winter with a resting bud called a hibernaculum. Leave them alone, and they should spring to life in the spring. (Didn't I just say that?) Red tentacles or red glands highlight the plant in full light. They look best with all red tentacles. Very cold hardy sundew.
