OK, here ICPS mentions "two taxonomically recognized varieties. Drosera filiformis var. filiformis (and) Drosera filiformis var. tracyi". Then it goes on to talk about varities in cultivation like the "Giant" and the "Florida all red".
It also states that the "Florida All Red" variety does not go dormant. So, my first question is is there a 'red' variety that does go dormant? I recieved a filiformis marked 'red'. It is defefantly dormant with a hibernacula, but before it went dormant I took some leaf cuttings and this is the result.
Now in all honesty, the parent plant was green when I got it and went dormant within weeks, but when I took the leaf cutting, I cut the leaves into 1" pieces and used the 'floating' method. Well within 24 hours, the cutting turned a deep red, just like the new babies are.
Is this a filiformis var. filiformis period?
