    Yes, it can now produce seed. I have begun taking leaf cutting, which it grows easily from. Soon it will spread around the world like the natural form has. But I hope it will always be known this one is manmade.

    Maybe register it as a cultivar? At least that way there will be some paper trail.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I don't really care for fancy cultivar names; I like to just label it D. tokaiensis white flower. But that would be a way to record. Maybe after it becomes popularized. Or, maybe someone will want to reference it in a science paper as was done with two of my other evil creations.

    I just received a paper about artificially reproducing D. tokaiensis:

    Breeding and Cytogenetic Characterizations of
    New Hexaploid Drosera Strains Colchicine-Induced
    from Triploid Hybrid of D. rotundifolia and D. spatulata
    Santhita Tungkajiwangkoon1, Junichi Shirakawa2,
    Masako Azumatani3 and Yoshikazu Hoshi4*
    2016 The Japan Mendel Society Cytologia 81(3): 263269

    The researchers make it sound so difficult

    Did they have any white flowered fertile plants?

    Flower color is not mentioned, and there are no flower photos. Must be pink as natural.
