    Drosera capensis: linear crown

    I have no other way to describe it, other than that the growing point; the crown is linear, not a simple point like all other Drosera I've seen.





    I spotted these two D. capensis when I was making a pot to give away. I almost gave these away!

    Sooooo........ Whaddisit? What happened? Is it stable?

    I saw a picture of a dew of some sort doing this once, I think I saw it on the CP photo finder. I can't find the picture, now.

    When I saw the picture back then, I really wanted one like that. I never imagined I'd actually get one let alone two!

    just out of curiosity, is that the wide-leaf form?
    amphirion might be onto something with the dividing idea.

    Yanno, that could be it. My D. capensis blaineskloof did this, to a lesser degree, before it divided. This here must be one plant making a dozen, though!

    The picture that I couldn't find was of a Drosera that flowered during this ribbon phase. The flower came out as a wide ribbon, with a row of flowers at the top.

    It's either dividing or a bunch plants that came from seeds or cuttings right next to eachother.

    I can say it's all one plant; I pulled it to re-pot, and it has only two and a half roots.

    Must be dividing then. Cool!
