    Amph,
    Great summary collage of the petiolaris - easily the best group of dews out there for many reasons (imho).

    My curmudgeonly side has difficulty continuing to appreciate those dews once I realized they resided in a bed of U. bisquamata.

    lol I like them because they keep algae growth down and look better than bare peat/sand

    True - but there are many others which could perform the same function without being uncontrollably invasive. The day will come when you want to grow something without bisquamata in the pot .... Curmudgeon/prophet out.

    Before and after, about six months:

    D. oblanceolata



    I didn't bother correcting the white balance on any of these pics obviously.


    And my hybrid, Drosera x [anglica "CA x HI" x "Lantau Island"]

    Some updates: So far no seed from the supposed D. capensis aliciae hybrid - perhaps it is indeed a hybrid. Although it could just be an infertile D. capensis broadleaf clone that some unscrupulous people are making money off of marketing it as something different. Isn't there another D. capensis clone that is infertile that may or may not be a hybrid. Was it Bain's Rocket?

    The supposed D. ultramafica clone I have is putting up a flower stalk. Maybe flower details will reveal its identity. It has been suggested that I cross it with D. spatulata to see if it produces fertile offspring or not. Apparently Robert Gibson did this with D. neocaledonica to see if it was D. spatulata or not. I think I have some D. spatulata in flower now too.

    D. rorimae generic form from BCP:


    D. binata "Coromandel NZ"


    For the hybrid debate, here is one of my capensis "alba" x aliciae plants.


    D. burmanii "Humpty Doo Red"


    Not very likely, but received as D. capillaris "Costa Rica" -Looks like a spatulata, but what do I know


    D. rorimae plantlets, for days!


    D. admirabillis "Palmiet river"



    I'm still having issues with my collection. Lots of taxonomic discrepancies.

    Just some dews doing time.


    I put this messy assemblage together mostly out of leaf cuttings from this spring.


    This is the crown of a mid-sized D. multifida 'extrema' with a misc. mess of new "test tube babies" just inches away.


    Drosera spatulata competing for space with P. primuliflora


    D. tokaiensis and P. planifolia

    These are my babies... the good, the bad, and the not as pretty.
