    Hey there Pyro,
    Nice ot finally meet you on this forum.
    Thanx for reminding who was the other recipient of one of those babies.What my previous post said, I think, was that I was successful growin D. regia from seed and published an article in the fall 2005 , I think, BACPS newsletter. No use rewriting the whole article here., Glad to hear that your plant is doing well. The biggest one from the litter, batch whatever is about 10 inches tall,now.
    Oh I also tried to cross a D. venusta with a regia and the result was venusta. Of course, I didn't go the whole nine yards and remove the pollen from the venusta.
    I still have lots to learn.
    Thanx for listening and keep 'em plants growin'

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    I can guarantee the purity of my crosses being that I used regia as the seed parent. The pollen ripens the first day the flower opens then the stigma are receptive 2 days later. It's easy to remove the anthers from each flower since they're so large. If these seed are viable, and I see no reason why they shouldn't be, these should make for some very interesting hybrids indeed. I've taken the liberty to treat some of the seed with varying degrees of GA3 solution, some seed will go to a friend for in-vitro culture, and the others will be sown on various media combinations without any GA3 treatment.

    As I seem to reall the karyotype for D. regia is rather unique. I'm not much into genetics but I would doubt the seed will be fertile in consequence. Ivan could tell you.

    Supposedly D. regia is closer to Dionaea & Aldrovanda than to other Drosera (as amazing as that sounds) - so these crosses are unlikely to actually be hybrids (likely to either be infertile or accidental selfings). However, strange things happen ...

    Well Phil,
    I would say you launched the perfect attack to this situation. Keep us posted.
    I ordered some regia from S. Hill, but they are getting major problems from the USDA and that kind of collapsed, lol.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Here is the link to the Phylogeny of the sundews ... . You can see from the figures the position of D. regia relative to the crosses that were attempted.
