    I'll be looking forward to those!

    I think the tokai x 'Tamlin' has maxed out , since it's beginning to flower already. As it is, it's a pretty large sundew though.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    Got another shot of the tokai x Tamlin to show hybrid vigor:

    The flower stalks is reaching well past 2 feet tall. Neither parent gets even half this size on the inflorescences.
    Also, soon I will have pics of the reverse, spatulata 'Tamlin' x tokaiensis, and a test cross of capillaris "Long Arm" x tokaiensis flowering. I say test, because they two species look ridiculously similar to me at the moment, so I'm suspicious they may be the same. I also have supposed capillaris "Costa Rica" that is flowering, and I can compare to that as well.

    Very cool! Keep us updated. I can't wait to see the D. madagascariensis hybrid, the madagascariensis is my favorite sundew.

    I can't guarantee any one of my hybrids is exactly that until they flower, since sometimes there is contamination. But the plants I got from the supposed Lantau x madag cross don't quite match the look of my pure Lantau plants, so there's a good chance it is that cross. They just need a bigger pot at the moment ( I ran out of room real quick with my hybrid and seedling escapades).
    Also, I recently attempted crossing the madag with two different spatulata forms, so we'll see if either of those play out, and I'm hoping for a shot at crosses soon of madag x dielsiana, x affinis, possibly try to get the reverse of the Lantau back, etc....
