    Thats what that bestcp site said. After finding out it was in the petiolaris complex from the site, I looked it up in The Savage Garden. But, you could be right.

    Also wanted to mention that you can find a really good picture of it on the cover of Carnivorous Plants of the World, by James and Patricia Pietropaolo. That picture is why I want the plant so bad.

    The name, neo-caledonica pretty much gives away the location of the plant. The climate in New Caledonia varies much from that of Northern/Western Au.

    Actually, I got that book from the library (VERY good), and on the cover there were numerouse shizandra... I think that it is different for different prints... Just so that noone gets confused.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Nathaniel,

    According to the big name CP taxa people (Sundew Matt, Petiolaris Sean, Jan Schauler, etc.) it is related to the spathulata complex and not the petiolaris group. Also, I don't think this species is mentioned in 'Savage Garden' because I had to search the 'net for other growers to find out cultivation conditions.

    NepG,

    There really isn't a simple cut and dry answer as to why it is so hard. My guess is that it is like quite a few other CPs were the basics are easy to provide but there are one or two crutial but undefinable factors needed for it (think along the lines of 'Why is it so rare for U. tricolor to flower?' or 'Why does D. regia spontaniously die for no good reason?')

    the main problem with it is that this species like a high humidity and warm weather .
    from my plants what I can also say they are very slow grower.
    and last point when a plant is rare at collection most put it on the difficult plants list.
    I'm not a drosera expert but it look to me more close to the petiolaris complex then spath. complex.

    Arie,

    It dose indeed look similar to the petiolaris complex but on the genetic level it is truly related to the spaths and not the petios (I had this beaten into me by the great Jan who sent me what was essentially a dissertation pointing out my stupidity when I asked if it was petio related.)
