    Ok, the D. ultramafica or D. spatulata ultramafica hybrid or whatever it is actually produced some seed which look a lot like the type specimen seed for D. ultramafica. The scape looks D. ultramafica, but the leaves and stiipules don't match the type description. Unfortunately I was never able to catch the flowers open.

    By moving an light source to different angles you can just make out the reticulated texture that is typical D. ultramafica. Shape conforms to both species in question.

    Note: anybody remember the pods from the 1950's version of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"?

    Just to throw more mud into the waters:

    This is supposed to be D. ultramafica from the ICPS seedbank sent by one of the expedition members:

    This is D. spatulata "Anapara, Gumfields, NZ"

    D. spatulata var gympiensis

    D. spatulata 'Tamlin'


    According to Fleischmann D. spatulata should have a granulate texture on the seed. All of these except D. 'Tamlin' are reticulated. The photos of D. spatulata seed on Honda's website are also reticulated.

    Confusion runs rampant.

    Drosera x [capillaris Pasco Giant x rotundifolia 'Charles Darwin'], but they do look really similar from the top.

    Ahh, that's one I haven't seen in awhile. It was all the rage 6 or 8 years ago. Ivan hated it because he couldn't get it to flower.

    Very nice.

    I can't get it to flower either. Although for me it's a good thing, because I find it annoying when sterile plants flower and waste the energy of the plant!

    Have a decent spatumafica pic. Plant does not have dew, but it is producing nice looking leaves. I'll put it up to the ultralo humidity:



    It appears to show the transparent hairs of spatulata. Looking forward to getting seeds.


    On the subject of hairs, here is a species I have been trying to acquire for a very long time, and finally succeeded in getting earlier this fall, D. slackii:




    And a gemmae plantlet of a species I have been searching for, D. scorpiodes "giant":




    And another recent arrival, D. collinsiae:




    D. graomogolensis being grown in low humidity:



    And a plant being grown in higher humidity conditions:




    And a couple randoms to finish off:

    D. hamiltonii:



    D. esmereldae:





    Just some dewy stuff... This thread is not active enough...

    Nice looking plants, Peat. The second graom is so dewy.
