    Hello everyone,

    Its been awhile since I posted a message. I've been involved in cross-pollinating and germinating various Petiolaris Complex specimens in my collection this past six months. Drosera ordensis has been my choice species, as I've had the fortune of having 2 clones flower at the same time! The trick was to be home during the 1-3 hour window on weekends and pollinate the flowers

    So here's the deal: The first photograph shows the two clones, one with the "yellow pads" and the other with red. Sorry for my lack of scientific word descriptions.



    Second photograph illustrates the few (less than 10% of seedlings) that show traits of the "yellow pad" ordensis.



    Third photograph shows the typical "red" looking padded plants.



    It's interesting to note that seeds from both plants were collected, and that over 90% of the young show the "red" trait.

    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?

    What a beautiful set of plants! I admire the white coloration of this species. It is so different than the usual green & red we normally see.

    Those are awesome pics and it is very cool to see the difference in them as they grow up. Tamlin sent me some D. ordensis seed recently, I think he got them from somewhere here, I'm not sure... (he also sent a few D. ordensis x falc seeds that havn't sprouted) But this morning I took a picture of them (too bright) but I think they're doing pretty good. This is a 4" pot, and the plants are 1.5-2 months old probably.

    Can't wait to have adult D. ordensis plants AGAIN hehe

    andrew, did it take long for the ordensis to sprout? I have some petiolaris seed that i planted 3 months ago and still no signs of life!
    Oh well, i hear it can take a loooong time.
