    New D. filiformis hybrids.

    Hello Friends,

    I'm pleased to introduce two new destinct and upcoming Drosera filiformis X tracyi cultivars. All cross-pollination efforts were strictly controlled via plant separation combined with anther removal prior to pollen production on all flowers chosen for crossing, to avoid any mistaken self-pollination. The parents involved are the rare Florida version of D. filiformis (D. filiformis "Florida red") and D. tracyi 'white flower, antho-free'.

    The antho-free parent lends greatly to the extreme pale leaf color of the forementioned hybrids. All plants are grown in identical soils, lighting and conditions.

    First, a general overall comparision;



    Here's D. "Dreamsicle". Note the orangish glow of the overall plant in the comparitive photo above.




    And now, D. "Ambrosia". Note complete lack of tentacle and leaf coloration typical of the antho-free parent, combined with the dark ruby-red glands of the D. "Florida red" parent;




    These wonderful plants shall be entering into tissue culture the beginning of 2011.

    Happy Growing to all,

    Brian

    "Rare Florida version," maybe in the wild...not rare in cultivation for long! I've been sending quite a few seeds of that around.

    I especially like your 'Dreamsicle'

    Thanks for posting, Brian!

    Ambrosia almost looks like a Drosophyllum. I might be interested in getting one eventually
