    ooooops! looks like i might have mislabled that one. It looks like it might be a D. filiformis 'California Sunset'

    I'm sorry, I'll send you bunches of seeds in the spring.

    looks like it's doing well though. It should more than double in the next year and will most definately be mature enough to flower and propagate even further.

    Those pics remind me of why D. filiformis is one of my favorite plants.

    pics look good to! what kind of camera did you get? how much did it cost?

    That is a nice picture! I think that is my favorite of the bunch. Is it 'albino' because there is no redness at the tip? Like inside each dew droplet?

    yes that is exactly why.
    it is "Something" free, in which the "something" is the red pigment that is seen in the tentacles and the leaves of other plants

    Neat! I had seen some people list albino dews on grow lists, but never bothered to ask what exactly made them albino. Thanks, Farmer Dave.

    Alex - You should take some extreme macro pictures of some bugs being consumed by dew, if there is such a thing on your plants. I saw the one bug. I think close-ups off bugs in dew are really facinating, even if it isn't a regia wrapping around a grasshopper a few times!

    are you saying that you don't have any albino plants of your own? If not then I have to hook you up with some seeds in spring. From what i've seen, Albino dews seem to produce much more dew than similar varieties. So it looks a lot like a slime covered leaf.

    yea 'Albino' refers to its lack of any red pigmentation. so the flowers are also white. there is a funny story behing this one. it came in as a hitch hiker and looked like a normal capensis. red tentacles and everything. i wasnt growing right so it was a bit etoleated(spelling?) and it had no red in it. come summer(i got it in december) i put it outside in full sun and it died but came back from its roots...as 'Albino'!!!!! its still albino though and it sure is one heck of a beautiful plant!
    Farmer Dave: its a Canon Powershot SD600. its around 250$ i think. thanks for the positive ID. i heard this one gets HUGE! the biggest leaf on it is alredy 2 inches or so. this capensis does produce the most dew of any of plants so far. my lone D. burmanni(is it even possible to have only one ) comes in second.

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    I just checked the price of this model and it has come down these past few months. About 6 months ago it was running aboutn $280 or more, now you can find it for about $215!
    I own this one too. Great camera that's simple to use.
