    I've only just recently acquired this plant from Mach. It's been in my care for some months now but I'll have to see if he can help shed light on the origin. Are you out there Mach? =P

    Thanks for the offer, I'll likely be attempting to produce seed with later blooms. Too many other things going on at the moment to add this to the list.

    The ''in-grown'' effect is exactly how I found this flower. It was tucked under 2 leaves, the only thing that gave it away was the bight white petal contrast against the deep red leaf coloration. I'm very surprised at how short the stalk is at full length. ~7inches seems very unlike any other Drosera bloom I've seen/heard of.

    That's one of the drawbacks of cloning - lack of genetic diversity. So it goes...

    Perhaps it is time for gene manipulation!

    If you wait long enough, it may happen on its own.

    (My wife just read about higher than normal # of cases of thyroid cancer in the US lately,
    thanks to dental X-rays!
    Seems they aren't bothering to use the long removable collar they are supposed to put on, which covers a person's neck further! Most couldn't even find the collar, as it is removable and often lost!) Glad my wife and I don't get them when recommended, but only when absolutely necessary!
    Don't get me started on what the most recent findings are on cell phones!

    Oh what a world!

    Perhaps we can simply stick some seeds to out faces when we go to the dentist or make a phone call!... that ought to do it! Or just send some seeds to yourself via thru Japan. Sad situation! What are we doing?
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Here you can sort of see one of the "ingrown" scapes (loop)

    Possibly. I hope I'm not setting off a powder keg here but maybe Allen Lowrie has different clones or seeds. I'm thinking the latter would be the easiest to acquire.
