    Well the admirable one (D. admirabilis, holotype small form) is starting to flower once again.


    This illustrates wth the"coccicaulis" label that is applied to the plant known as Drosera venusta or sometimes D. coccicaulis makes no sense. "Cocci" from Latin can mean berry bearing or scarlet from the Latin word "coccus" - the berry of the scarlet oak (used for red dyes). "Caulis" refers to the stem (flower). I don't see the "berry bearing" connection unless the you consider the flower buds as the berries. I do see the "scarlet" connection. However the majority of the South African rosetted species have red flower stalks and buds resembling berries at one time or another so why would this attribute be uniquely applied to one group of plants?

    D. regia clone R1 - fun with focus shift. This plant definitely benefited from a cool winter outdoors.



    D. glabripes - ditto on the winter. Colder winters may be key to the long term survival of this species. Time will tell.


    D. hamiltonii - flower continues to develop. These are all offshoots from the same plant. Why the variability in color


    The infamous Butterfly Valley D. hybrida tetraploid - flowers coming up

    Odds are it is D. corinthiaca a natural hybrid of D. glabripes and D. aliciae. I've never found a vendor in the US that sells true D. glabripes. The source in Australia sells D. x corinthiaca mislabeled as D. glabripes and that's where the US vendors get them from.

    D. corinthiaca


    vs

    D. glabripes

    this is only about a third as tall as they've gotten for me

    even when young they are quite different from the hybrid

    The hybrid as a tough one to keep going long term too.
