    New (?) filiformis hybrid

    After several attempts at crossing filiformis "Florida all red" and var. tracyi, I've finally gotten a seed to germinate and it has just reached maturity. As of right now, the only other filiformis cross that I'm aware of is D. 'California sunset' which is the standard filiformis crossed with var. tracyi, so this may be the first time the "florida all red" variety has been used in a cross.

    Here are some pics;

    The flower. Standard filiformis look but almost double the size of "fl all red", about the same size as var. tracyi.



    Leaves of filiformis "fl all red" x var. tracyi. They retain the green leaves of var. tracyi but inherit the red glands tips of "fl all red".



    Community tray with my cross on the left and "florida all red" on the right.



    var. tracyi leaves for comparison.



    Maybe I should call this one Drosera 'Florida sunrise'?

    Also, if anyone can point me in the direction of a list of Drosera hybrids/crosses, I'd appreciate it.

    (sorry for the not-so-great picture quality. filiformis is a hard subject to photograph.)

    F-U-N! Crossing 2 varieties of the same species makes a potential cultivar, not a hybrid eh?

    Ahh, that's right. My mistake, chalk it up to 4th of July beers.

    Does it have a dormancy requirement? What sort of conditions does it prefer?

    Maybe you could try crossing this with D. x 'California Sunset'.

    Cool. I'd buy it if it comes out soon.

    I'm guessing when winter comes around, it will go dormant along with my other types of D. filiformis. I no longer have a terrarium so I can't test it for year round growth.

    Conditions here are mostly hot and humid (typical lowland) and "Florida all red" and var. tracyi both enjoy it. No idea what it's preference would be, but if you can grow the other two, this one should do just fine.

    That's an interesting idea. I don't own 'California Sunset' but was thinking of getting one for the sake of comparison.

    Some of the US Drosera hybrids are in Schnell's book.

    Drosera:
    x obovata (anglica x rotundifolia)
    x hybrida (filiformis ssp. filiformis x intermedia)
    x anglica x linearis
    x capillaris x intermedia

    If the chromosome count isn't doubled (which happens in Drosera hybrids between different species), it could be crossed. (It really depends, though. Is D. f. ssp. tracyi = D. tracyi?)
