    It looks like I have a fertile cross of Drosera oblanceolata x Drosera capillaris Southern long arm form. The plant looks very close to Drosera oblanceolata, a little less hairy, but it grows quickly like capillaris, and has a deeper shade of red.

    Some of this seed may have been sent out by me as "capillaris long arm form" so, if you recently received this seed from me, you might have a surprise in store for you. I'll try to get some photo's up in the near future of the parents and their "kid".

    Now the question is what do I call it: oblanocapillaris or capillanceolata? Maybe "The Mitt"?

    It is possible that some of the capillaris seed *may* be affected by uncontrolled fertilization, although the odds are low.

    Noah,
    The capillaris you sent was the pollen receiver. The hybrid growst at the same good rate as this species. Oblanceolata is a finicky grower, so this is good!

    Btw, do you have Ivan's oblanceolata hybrid?

    That makes me a grandfather!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Yes, I have a few. I'll send you one, they are not thriving in their current conditions for some reason. Maybe they just need a transplant?? They are growing outdoors under shade cloth with moist soil, same as my capillarises. Actually the capillarises in that area also just took a nosedive for no reason at all (well, none conceivable [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]) Although I think maybe they were overwhelmed by the moss which seems to grow everywhere. Anyway, I have several of the hybrid and will send one to you with the x wataris. Would you like fries with that? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Wooo hooo! Thanks Noah! Ivan no longer has this in his collection. It seems it behaves much like oblanceolata, and needs good watering but not sodden roots. I am also looking for Drosera x "Fabrica" another of his experiments which he has no longer, in case you hear of anyone who has this going. I am a big fan of Ivan's creations Noo fries, thanks - I am on a diet, trying to reach 146 lbs. 8 more lbs and I will be there :-)
