    I must say that you have done a fantastical thing here.

    I'm really, really curious what their colors would be like if the lighting intensity was high, and feeding low?

    This is so awesome, and you've done an amazing job. How do you keep track of it all?

    When it comes to sundews, I like to keep them robust over worrying about color, so I don't slack on the feedings. And there's only a few species that the color is really affected by less food.
    After 9 or so years of growing things, you tend to form a very good memory of what everything is and where, and lists are helpful too. Colored threads are the only thing helping me remember which hybrids are which on the flower stalks too.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    Yeah they will grow much slower without regular feeding, sometimes it's worth it imo. I love feeding dews though, it's seemingly really calming.

    Forgot to post these pics here since the last couple weeks were hectic, but I have an exciting new hybrid that I have confirmed: D. affinis x spatulata "white flower"
    D. affinis x spatulata "white flower" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr

    The plant has the climbing pattern and elongate leaves of the pod parent, but wider, spoon-shaped leaves of spatulata and a more compact growth form. Even while small it's very attractive.

    Also, recent hybridization attempts include the successful harvest of D. intermedia Easton, MA x filiformis "FL All Red" seeds, and crosses in both directions of FL All Red with typical capensis, and ongoing new crosses with my now-flowering D. ultramafica x spatulata, which appears to be producing viable seed.

    Pic rundown today, most of the hybrids I have produced. I don't have a pic of natalensis x aliciae, and a couple others which will be noted, but the rest of those that are mature or recognizable as hybrids are below.
    I made this cross three times, at least twice I know succeeded, originally with different forms of tokaiensis I thought were other species. I may just sell a bunch and combine the rest into one pot
    D. tokaiensis x sp. Lantau Island by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    The reverse only succeeded once.
    D. sp. Lantau Island x tokaiensis by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    The tropical anglica (which has longer leaves) is flowering, so I may be making new versions of this cross
    D. spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" x anglica Oregon by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    One of two batches of this cross, again because I thought the tokaiensis was another species
    D. tokaiensis x spatulata 'Tamlin' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    These ones are a little run down due to flowering, like the tokai parent can be. The reverse appears to have failed, so a remake might be imminent
    D. natalensis x tokaiensis by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    I didn't take a photo of the reverse of this, aka spatulata "white flower" x tokaiensis, which is slightly larger.
    D. tokaiensis x spatulata "white flower" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    The one seedling I got of this
    D. sp. Lantau Island x capensis 'Albino' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    And the mature typical version
    D. sp. Lantau Island x capensis "typical" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    The reverse of this cross isn't picture, but is similar
    D. spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" x 'Tamlin' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    D. spatulata 'Tamlin' x "white flower" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    This is one of my favorite looking of the rosette crosses
    D. spatulata 'Tamlin' x sp. Lantau Island' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    My first plants of this cross flowered recently (pic below), and the glandular scapes, split stigmas, and more rounded petals show up in the cross, otherwise the plants look identical to Lantau
    D. sp. Lantau Island x brevifolia by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Comparison of flowers, Lantau on the left, hybrid to the right
    D. sp. Lantau Island x brevifolia by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    D. spatulata "white flower" x 'Tamlin' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    My only plant of this cross as well
    D. intermedia Easton, MA x tokaiensis by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    The second known successful tokai x Lantau cross
    D. tokaiensis x sp. Lantau Island by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    These two are in rather low light, but even so are clearly not pure brevifolia
    D. brevifolia x sp. Lantau Island by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Again, for the same reason as some of the others, I have two versions of this cross, this plant is the one that looks best
    D. tokaiensis x intermedia Easton, MA by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    For some reason, my two largest plants, once they reached a certain size, completely stopped making leaves, as if the growth point just ended. Hopefully a new one will show up on each, but this baffles me.
    D. affinis x spatulata "white flower" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Got plenty of these
    D. tokiensis x spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    The original 'Tamlin' x tokai cross
    D. spatulata 'Tamlin' x tokaiensis by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    And the original reverse
    D. tokaiensis x spatulata 'Tamlin' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Got plenty of these too
    D. spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" x tokaiensis by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    D. spatulata "white flower" x sp. Lantau Island" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Though this hybrid takes a lot after the pollen parent, under good light the wider lamina and shorter, hairier petioles are clear
    D. madagascariensis x affinis by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    The divergent appearance of the Fraser spatulata makes this hybrid kind of stick out compared to the other spat x tokai crosses
    D. spatulata "Fraser Island" x tokaiensis by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    D. sp. Lantau Island x spatulata "white flower" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    So these guys are not doing too hot, but I think I finally figured out why, so hopefully I can get them to turn around soon.
    D. sp. Lantau Island x 'Tamlin' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Lastly, as of right now this cross is my favorite looking of the rosette type crosses
    D. aliciae x sp. Lantau Island by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    D. aliciae x sp. Lantau Island by hawken.carlton, on Flickr

    Dude that affinisxspatulata hybrid is really neat. Is that the one you were telling me about?

    Millipede: yes, the affinis x spatulata was the one I mentioned. Now to just figure out why the growth points ended...

    i think ive had that happen a couple times. I never really investigated any cause though so i cant say much about it. How long from seedling to maturity did those all take?

    They're not all mature. Never had flowers from most of them. Some are a couple years old already, others take only a few months.
