    'Same here! It is a pleasure to see yours blooming so fully.

    I meant to comment on the amazing orange color of the D. echinoblastus. A stunning color. The only other orange-flowered Drosera that I know about is a variety of aff. paradoxa.

    The species appears to be self-incompatible so no seeds so far. I hoping these are a different clone from the plants I had before. Those are flowering too but are 2-3 weeks behind these. I'm storing pollen so maybe if they are different clones I can get seed that way.

    Have you tried deep pots? At least six inches seems to make a difference. Check with Stephen Morely on winter temps as cool winters seem to matter too.

    Nice macro! The orange color is a nice break from pink or purple Drosera flowers.

    You should see a difference in growth. They don't send out nearly as many offshoots in deep pots. I hypothesize that rather then spending resources on offshoots the plants can put the energy into flower production.
