    D. hybrida & D. sp. belem Info

    I just received these two to my collection and am totally unfamiliar with them.

    I read that D. hybrida is a cross between D. filiformis and D. intermedia. Logic tells me that it will require a dormancy and probably for am hibernaculum. Is that true? If it flowers, will the seeds be fertile? Will leaf cuttings work



    What exactly is D. sp. belem? Is it tropical, sub-tropical, or temperate? How is it grown?

    D. hybrida will need a dormancy. Seeds are sterile.

    No idea about the other dew.

    It's being circulated somehow. Will leaf cuttings work or does it clump... or both?

    If a plant is identified with Genus sp. xxx it means that the species has not been identified or is unknown. In the case of Drosera sp. Belem it appears to be Drosera from around Belem, Brazil - species unidentified.

    These could be a new species, a natural hybrid or a unknown form, subspecies or variety of an existing species.

    Until a valid description of the new Drosera found in the Philippines is published (and the species name announced) it is designated as Drosera sp. A

    Both, or coarse leaf cutting being quicker and easier; especially with this one.

    I've found that D. x hybrida is very prolific with both methods. One overwintered plant produced at least 11 new growth points this spring which were easily divided into multiple plants. In addition, leaf cuttings in water produce many plantlets from each leaf (pic of sprouts in growlist).

    This is a great companion plant for Sarrs - it thrives in the same conditions, produces lots of additional plants (but without the weedy self-seeding issue) & is very attractive & robust. While I'm not generally a fan of hybrids, this one has won me over & convinced me to try growing D. beleziana.
    All the best,
    Ron

    Thanks, Ron. I will try this both on the grow rack and with the mini-bog plants on the porch.
