    Here are a couple of photos of my large, 5-year old D. slackii. The flowers are 2.6cm (1 inch) across and the rosette has a diameter of 6cm and has a stem, draped in old leaves, 5cm high. I grow it in a 1L pot in pure NZ long-fibred Sphagnum.

    Question

    Hi Vic,

    I saw these photos on the CP UK forum, but neglected to comment, so to make up for it here:

    Beautiful Pics of a superb species!! Thanks for sharing!

    These photos have spurred me on to propagate my own Drosera slackii plant (via root cuttings) this week, as it's looking very poor at the moment.

    Cheers,

    Adam. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I'm mainly interested in Drosera, Dionaea & Aldrovanda, Hardy Orchids (esp Dactylorhiza), Arums and Ericas (Heaths/Heathers - European + S.African)

    great plant, great pics!!!! and the Jealousy ensues... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    In bleak description the waves come crashing; battering the very instinct of every lusting moment to fulfill this gaping desire. A mouth as dry as soot and how it once had tasted of life, fit within a momentís time; And how those fleeting days laid in the light of blissful suffering. -me

    This is a very interesting form of D. slackii. The leaves on this plant are comparatively narrow lamina than other D. slackii I have seen, but the red stipules clearly define it as D. slackii. I would be interested in learning more about this plant location data, collector etc. would make this a very interesting plant to own.
