    the coolest dews you've never heard of

    I was checking out the sundew section of Bob Z's photo finder and found a ton of species that I've never even heard of, particularly south american species. Here are some of the better ones I found.
    Drosera arenicola, from South Venezuela.

    Drosera browniana, from Australia:

    Drosera camporupestris from SE brazil. Love the look of this species, unfortunately they don't seem to be available in the US...

    Drosera cendeensis from Venezuela. Anyone know if this is in cultivation? Those long leaf bases are amazing!

    Drosera chrysolepis from Brazil. Similar to camporupteris, but with a stem!

    Drosera elongata, from Angola in Africa.

    Drosera erythrogyne, from Western Australia. Climbing tuberous dew on steroids.

    Drosera flexicaulis from Morro de Lopollo. Love the name, love the dew!

    Drosera graniticola from SW australia. Check out those flowers!

    Drosera grievei from Western Australia. A nice looking pygmy.

    Drosera hartmeyerorum from Australia. Kinda like a red byblis.

    Drosera hirticalyx from Venezuela.

    I bet there are tons more too... I only got to the P's. I'd be interested to know more about these species such as growing conditions, etc. if anyone grows them.

    D. huegelii gets my vote. But one I like is...D. capensis 'red'. Nice color, lots of dew, world donimation, and can survive an atomic bomb. What more can you ask? LOL

    wow, that's beautiful! I missed that one, I think I clicked one of the links and it took too long so I got impatient. That flower bud is huuuuuge.

    Armed with an Aphis small seeds permit & some nice seeds worth trading, there are a number of folks in South America who are eager to trade. I suspect there are also some folks across the pond who are growing some of these plants ... & possibly a few hiding here in the states...

    1st step is to get some seeds of stuff they want.....
