    Drosera filiformis “Florida Red” with white flowers

    The leaves on this one seem to be a much darker/deeper red than the typical D. filiformis “Florida Red” (aka “Florida All Red”) in my conditions outside in full sun.

    I'd heard about this plant before. I love the contrast.

    That's neat! I like how the more red plant has the white flowers- too cool

    Spectacular looking plant!
    I hope it grows true from seed.
    Will you be selling seed and if so, how much?

    Good growing,
    Mike

    I have not been able to germinate seed from it so far, think it might need hot stratification. I doubt it will grow true from seed because I believe it is a mutation, so I have not really tried that hard to collect/germinate seed from it.

    I say that you take some cuttings and see if they produce white flowers.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    Since the plantlets will the same genes as the cuttings, they will definitely have white flowers.

    Do you know if these require dormancy?
