    D. "capillaris FL Long Arm." This pot has given me a number of headaches. Some plants in the pot are confirmed to be long arm capillaris, they have the pink flowers and produce viable seed, and have the characteristic semi-flattened lamina tip, but others at various times of the year (most notable during summer when leaves are longest) produce more rounded lamina and have never produced viable seed. I suspect them of being hybrids with intermedia. Ironic since it's thought this form may have arisen from a polyploid hybrid with capillaris and intermedia originally.

    And, my D. filiformis "typical"

    One of the plants that is confusing in the capillaris "FL Long Arm" pot. Ith as more rounded leaf tips, and has never produced viable seeds.

    This one, and the plant that sits next to it, however, have more squared off leaves and have produced seeds

    Another shot of the forest of D. intermedia Easton, MA growing out of the pot head (no puns intended )

    sp. Lantau Island

    D. madagascariensis doing well again


    anglica "Oregon"

    intermedia Mt. Roraima

    D. burmannii "Humpty Doo"

    filiformis FL Giant

    filiformis FL All Red. Perhaps the flower stalk will succeed this time

    'Dreamsicle'

    burmannii "green" formerly known as sessilifolia. Hopefully the seedlings I haven now will be the real thing

    ultramafica x spatulata. Still haven't managed to keep the flower stalk alive, but the plant is very happy

    tomentosa

    nidiformis x natalensis 'Tom Turpin'

    tokaiensis x spatulata "white flower"

    sp. Lantau Island x capensis typical. I love the shape of this hybrid, and I recently harvested seeds of the reverse. I also have seedlings of both directions with the 'Albino' cape form

    D. felix

    affinis

    D. regia. This used to be the second largest plant, but as the big one died back it became the big guy. But, new plantlets have sprouted from the roots of the former giant, so here's hoping for a pot of giants!

    D. scorpioides "pink Flower"

    citrina citrina. Can't wait to see this flower

    platystigma A. Hoping for a mass blooming this fall.

    Still labeling this for now as aff. admirabilis after looking though my files of South African species, as that is the closest resemblance I can find.

    And this one as aff. slackii due to the widened leaf tip

    spatulata "white flower," as prolific as ever

    2 clones of D. aliciae x natalensis flower. I just repotted them, so hopefully the plants will become respectable size soon

    My filiformis FL All Red is doing great too, for once, and finally flowered! I have so far crossed it with sp. Lantau Island, intermedia Easton (x hybrida, finally!), and attempted spatulata 'Tamlin.' I'm somewhat disappointed the Mt. Roraima intermedias aren't flowering yet, so no tropical hybrida, and I missed the chance on a cross with capensis.... oh well

    Great pics, love your Sundew collection. Would like to see updated pics of your setup where you keep all these.

    I tend not to take pics of my setups, as I am a global organizer and therefore have lots of everything strewn about. Not the greatest for photography. And I tend to like individual photos more than not at this point...

    binata Coromandel NZ is coming back around. Come next year, however, I'm moving starts of every binata variety I have outside with the Sarracenia, as the test plants out there are doing better than the indoor ones have in years. Go figure....

    Ironic too, that the spatulata "Fraser Island" always do better in every pot except the ones I want them in....

    With the southern sun D. 'Tom Turpin' are getting big and, with some, very very red

    Is there any way you can get more light to them, I'm sure you'd see a ton more thick tentacles and darker/more developed colors.

    I love all the pictures and your variety is great.

    I hesitate to give advice here because I respect the ability you are clearly demonstrating to grow this wide of a variety, but I know the look of those thin tentacles and leaves. No doubt they will continue to plug along and flower for you, but just some food for thought I suppose.

    Plenty of people have tried to tell me I need more light, and what I can say is this: if someone wants to donate enough money to set up some really good lights, by all means! Otherwise, I am a college student who has no extra money for that right now, and I rely on what I can afford when I can afford it. I've upgraded lights here and there over time, a lot of these plants wouldn't be alive otherwise, but there is a cost limit.
    And for some of the plants pictured, my camera is terrible at catching the true colors and so a lot of them are much more red than the pictures suggest....
