    One for the drosera pros..

    So last year I collected seed from numerous D. rotundifolia and what was believed to be D. intermedia plants from my local bog.
    This year the grown plants are flowering size. The D. rotundifolia is unmistakeable, but I have questions with the intermedia plants.
    I have a couple plants that are identical to this, with white flowers: http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n...stGiantF-1.jpg

    I also have some plants that look identical to this: http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n...eavedSunde.jpg

    However, my version of the lower growing D. intermedia have just flowered PURPLE (rather than white)!! My question is this: Is there a purple flower form of D. intermedia?

    If not, may I suggest dubbing it:
    D. intermedia "Mass Effect"

    They are usually white but the species type descriptions don't mention petal color. D. intermedia was first thought to be a hybrid which accounts for the name. Could be an introgressed hybrid.

    Let's see photos of the flowers and macros of the seed when available.

    I can probably swing a flower pic, since there are unopened buds on the stalk. But I've been slacking on buying macro lenses. So no luck on pics of the seeds.

    D.nidiformis......I don't know how, or why, but that's what it is I believe...but an open flower will tell me for sure.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
