Thought I should start a new post rather than follow one from the last, due to the number of pics.
These were taken yesterday on my parentís 21 acre property just outside of Melbourne. *Its been raining a bit so the ground looks much wetter than it usually is. *All of these are growing on a Sth facing slope (Southern hemisphere).
This is just to show a bit of how the area looks. *You can make out some of the red patches:
These show some of the patches:
In all there is probably about 5 acres of Whittakeri. *My parents bought the place about 9 years ago. *It had cattle running on it just prior to them buying it and the pastures and bush were in a terrible state. A pair of horsed is all that has been run since and they have been fenced out of any area we know has Drosera (and Green-hood orchids). *In fact they are trying to get much of the pasture to revegitate naturally with indigenous plants. *Over the 9 years the number and area that Whittakeri appears has increased dramatically, with this year seeming to be a bumper crop.
