    Stephen Morley is saying it took him 20 years to get D. hamiltonii to flower! Allegedly they are self-incompatible so seed is unlikely without genetically different clones. Of course it could be that flowering in cultivation is so rare that people have just been unlucky getting seed. D. hamiltonii apparently is not covered in Lin Chen's Self-incompatibility, Seed Abortion and Clonality in the Breeding Systems of Several Western Australian Drosera species (Droseraceae) .

    The Fungus Gnat Line...

    I seem to have a gnat problem...or maybe the gnats have a regia problem.

    Ohhh! Nice!

    I have an identification/growth problem. I raised seedlings of D. anglica "Ca x Hi", and gave one to my friend. I saw it today, and it's a monster plant with three inch leaves, while mine doesn't even reach two inches! What could be the cause of this? Does it look like the "Ca x Hi' form to you?

    Any suggestions are appreciated...

    I'm no expert and correct me if I'm wrong someone, but I believe that "hybrids" have more diversity between seedlings then say a "pure" cross. so that is prolly the case here.

    From the shape of the leaves I would tend to believe it is "CA x HI". My plants are nowhere near the size of Ivan Snyder's plants but then few people grow sundews as well as he does. Mine got significantly bigger the second year.

    I forgot about that. That means that the anglica that I have is not the true D. anglica "Ca x Ha"?

    @NaN: Thanks. I wish I could grow plants like Ivan.
