    Very cool that you've got them growing right in your back yard. They look great too. The red is a nice contrast among the green moss.

    Thanks! I've got Pinguicula caerulea, three Sarracenia species and Utricularia subulata, too.

    If I ever move, I'm probably going to take that clump on the moss with me.

    I grow this species also from seed. The first batch of about 100 seeds produced exactly one plant, I got those seeds on ebay. The second batch of seeds, this time from the ICPS, produced dozens of plants. No stratification in either case, for whatever that's worth. In my opinion these are nice, pretty plants, more people should give a try.

    I can't say I've seen them available, but I haven't really been looking either. Those are some nice pictures!

    Chixulub - my reaction would be to say that most sundew growers have never even seen this one, so they haven't had any exposure to it. The way I sometimes deal with cool species that no one really knows about is to throw them in, seed or plant, with trades. I've gotten a few this way as well.

    I've had some of my seeds listed on ebay before and donated a fair amount to the ICPS in the past, makes me wonder if some aspect of the age of the seeds affects it, or how they're stored.....

    And I agree with bluemax, it's a species that I think a lot of people just haven't heard of...

    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    I've germinated D. brevifolia in the past that took 4.5 months, which is way longer than most subtropical or warm temperate Drosera. The seed wasn't super fresh, so maybe there's a significant drop in viability over time?
