    The only criteria for registering a cultivar are outlined here:
    ICPS Cultivars --- no mention of any trials or experimental/analytical procedures necessary to define a cultivar.[/QUOTE]
    mmmm....

    a cultivar needs to be something special, better than the average plant. otherwise, anyone could raise a few hundred seedlings and register each one as a 'new cultivar'.

    it stands to reason that they they should have, for example, unique colouration or growth form that makes it stand out. if you have not compared your drosera regia to any other, how can you say it is better and worthy of cultivar status??

    Here is a thought, perhaps Tamilin ( being a independent 3rd party already using the new method) could attempt to grow another "big easy" leaf cutting via the Standard accepted method. OR alternatively he try growing a D.regia from another source using the new method and compare the results to the "big easy".

    Well, so much for that idea. I have been informed by a reliable source that Regia requires cool nights to survive...we had five or six of those down here last February.

    My only alternative would be to bring it in every night, turn my AC down to 55 and file chapter 11 with Florida Flicker and Flash. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    That's good to know. I think i can conclusively diagnose the death of my plant as being caused by high night temperatures.

    Time to try again! No danger of hot night temps now. Brrrr......!

    Anyone who knows of a source for seeds or plants, please PM me. Thanks.

    Actually I've grown mine continuously for almost 3-1/2 years now with the first 2-1/2 years my nightime ambient temperature never going below 75F and the daytime temperatures near the plants around 85-90F. This past year I switched the light cycle over to light them during the natural night and light them during the natural day. This provides them with approximately the same temperature 24 hours per day, around 85-90F. Drosera regia may be a temperate plant in nature but at least the clone I grow seems to have no "need" for a dormancy.

    Joseph,

    What I have heard about D. regia is there are two sites. There are the ones on top of the mountain that do better with a dormancy and some only partially up the slope that do not have as cool as temperatures. I sent seed I got of site "B" to a couple of TC people, but I never heard the results. ANyway, one of the forms is definitely smaller than the other. I think Robert Gibson has all the poop on this, if we can entice him into this conversation.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Perhaps Tamlin may be able to engage Robert to share a bit of insight on this subject.
