    Gemmae Season Is Right Around The Corner

    I took these pictures yesterday:







    The stipules are revealing what's coming.

    Aloha Jim. I am seeing similar indications on my plants in Kula. Not sure if the trigger is cold or day length or if it varies form species to species. D. scorpioides almost never produces gemmae for me or if it does it is late spring early summer......

    I just checked mine and several of the paleacea group are generating gemmae too. Drosera roseana seems to be the one leading the pack.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I have had a group of pygmy's growing for almost two years now and have yet to see a gemmae ...

    I did recently adjust my lighting down to winter photo period so maybe that will be enough to trigger them into producing gemmae.

    Mine produced Gemmae very late last year... Almost December before they were ready to harvest! But every pygmy I had produced plenty of them. If I get similar results this season I see a hefty giveaway coming

    Hmm.. haven't checked mine yet but maybe I should. After last time I did a SASE for 'em, I now have scorpioides weeds/volunteers everywhere (burmanii pot, sarr minibogs, etc.).

    Yet to get good gemmae production here...a couple scorps just decided to kick the bucket instead. The pulchella, pygmeae and 'Lake Badgerup' wanted to keep growing all the way through this season.
