    Drosera of the Table Mountain Nature Reserve - South Africa

    Hi,

    here are some pictures, taken in a part of the Table Mountain Nature Reserve. Our goal at that day was to find Drosera ramentacea, which is known from there. Saddly, we have not been lucky at that day finding this plant. As we now know we started in the totaly wrong direction, so we ended up walking hours in the mountains finding only some Drosera trinervia. At the end of the day we found some interesting Drosera species. So, at least a small success for that day. The lanscapes and views down the mountains would have been worth doing the walk alone, but there is nothing better than to have both, Drosera and incredible landscapes




























    (more pictures (and more species) of that location will follow some time later)

    so does that cunefolia stick around all year? Or does it disappear into dormancy along with the trinervia and hilaris?

    Sooo beautiful! Blue skies, sweet views, and Drosera... speechless
    These are views that I probably won't get to see in my lifetime so thank you for sharing all these pictures and the pictures on the Lion's Head thread also. I look forward to more pictures.

    beautiful pictures...nothing like in-situ pictures to tell you that you're cultivation practices are all wrong.
    makes me miss my cuneifolia.

    Hi,

    thanks for the nice comments! Yes, Drosra cuneifolia from this area should have a summer dormancy. At least in my collection the plants regularly die back in summer.
