    D. binata "Dichotoma Giant" top and D. binata "multifida Extrema" bottom



    based on size and numb r of flowers I would almost guess that the D. binata "Dichotoma Giant" is a tetraploid. Also supports why the hybrid between the two D. binata 'Martson Dragon' appears to be incompatible with either parent. It is triploid.

    The sticky traps on Drosophyllum are resin based so the prey doesn't wash out with rain, less likely to get blown off by wind or drop off if the "dew" dries out.

    Interesting observations, Mach.

    * Correction: Roridula has resin based dew, not Drosophyllum, although Drosophyllum dew has some interesting properties. Among these are a strong honey scent and a yellow fluorescent substance.

    Ooo.. very nice. Still waiting to see my whittakeri. My D. macrophylla ssp. monantha and llowriei 'Giant' both broke the surface this weekend though.

    D. graomogolensis grow faster in deep pots, the roots like to stretch out. Maybe one of you 2 liter pop bottles made into a pot?
