    Hmm, I had some seed grown capensis that most were red but some were all white except for the flowers which were typical, if maybe a tad darker then the type form.

    They're very easy to flower and to seed, I'm sure you'll get more capensis then you'll ever need. I resorted to planting some outside in the bog garden, and they're still alive 2 yrs later!

    According to the ICPS, the white flowered D. capensis has a cultivar name: it has been registered as Drosera capensis 'albino' with the ICPS Registration Authority, therefore reference to 'alba' is incorrect according to the Rules of Botanical Nomenclature.

    D. capensis are self fertile aren't they? The flowers pliinate themselves when they close up after flowering, so I'm sure you will have viable seed even if there were no pollinators around. I just seperated out some binata and capensis seed today, you get a lot of seed for very little effort.

    Just a slight correction, the white flowered D. capensis is registered as D. capensis 'Albino' with the capital "A". Jan (the maintainer of the database) is very particular on spelling and capitalization.

    I am not alone in finding the name 'Albino' inappropriate for the white-flowered form of D. capensis. The term albino, suggests a complete lack of pigmentation, these plants, whilst much paler than the typical form, do have pink pigmentation on their tentacles, and as such are not true albinos. For this reason, I prefer to use the term 'var. Alba', which is in very common usage on both sides of the Atlantic, instead of the 'correct' (sic), accepted name.

    Cheers
