    I sent out a mass of this seed last season. I am curious to know if anyone on the forum has it in cultivation?

    Btw: I did not name this plant! It was named somewhat dubiously in my honor (as a joke) on a Japanese plant BBS (I believe the post is still there), back when I was trying to determine what the... species was. After all the travails I went through regarding this plant, I figured it deserved some distinction, so I stand by the name which is totally illegitimate, for the record. You'll have to knock me down to get me to change it though. If you are growing this, you know it is unlike any other form of D. spatulata! This is the white flowered Australian form found around Queensland. The ID even stumped Fernando Rivadavia due to the plants semi-caulescent form. Once the scape appeared the mystery resolved quickly: D. spatulata in all it's variations has similar seed pods.

    So.....anyone growing this one?

    Hi Tamlin

    I can't say I'm growing it yet, but by coincidence, I just planted the seed yesterday along with lots of other Drosera seeds. I have been wondering what they were though, but I was going to wait until they started to grow before asking you. I guess I don't need to now and I'll let you know how I get on with them.

    Cheers

    Vic

    Best of luck with this Vic. I will be interested to hear if the semi-caulescent habit is retained through subsequent generations. BTW: one plant of this easily fills a 4 inch pot.

    This is a plant I had been distributing as spatulata "monster" long before it had this other name. Anyone here want to assign yet another name to it? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Tamlin,

    What are the differentiating features on spathulata seed pods??
    I am always looking for reliable ways to identify sundew species.

    Drosera spatulata sepals are reflexed when in fruit. This means the sepals do not close up around the seed pod after the plant opens its flowers. They remain spread out about
    the pod. If you look straight down on the pod, this flaring of the sepals presents a star-like effect. Also if the buds form along one side of the scape, this is a good indicator. Other details include a 3 lobed stipule, 3 styles divided from the base and occasionally divided again at the tips, white hairs on the underside of the lamina, esp. in the middle of it. Seed is fairly conclusive bearing 10-12 rows of elongated pits, shiny black in color and ovoid.
