    Drosera capillaris "long arm"

    For those that I have distributed seed or plants of Drosera capilliaris "long arm" the location for the original plants is as follows:

    Tate's Hell Swamp, Franklin County, FL

    In the panhandle and quite a few other carnivorous plants can be found in the area.

    But you may not want to live there...

    These have never formed winter buds on me but they do grow smaller and slower in the winter. Here they are living up to their name now that the days are getting longer:

    The variability of Drosera capillaris has always interested me. In east Texas I see carpets of it where Sarracenia alata grows and they are more of what you would traditionally consider Drosera capillaris... compact and more horizontal growth than vertical growth. In fact, Drosera capillaris 'long arm' looks like a completely different plant!

    Here is what I see when I go on my visits:

    I have a pot that has formed winter buds. They are on cold window sill.

    They don't look that much different when they are smaller, but yes, D. capillaris varies quite a bit:

    Sir Kristoff, yours definitely looks closer to mine. I used to take them for granted but they can really add a lot to a bog garden. Throw some capillaris and filiformis together with Sarracenia and things look good.
