    Hi everyone,

    I went on a fieldtrip today and came across some lovely Drosera glanduligera plants in flower. I thought you may be interested in taking a look. These plants grew in amongst Drosera peltata and D. macrantha ssp. planchonii.

    Two plants in flower-

    Photo of plant from different location taken a couple of weeks ago, just thought I'd chuck it in as well.

    Wonderful pics, but where do you live? You're lucky to have such plants in your environment!

    Hi guys,

    Yes, I live in Australia. I'm from Melbourne which is located in the bottom south east part of Australia. Many CP's grow close by for example- Drosera glanduligera, peltata, auriculata, pygmaea, spatulata, binata, macrantha ssp. planchonii, whittakerii ssp. aberrans, Utricularia dichotoma, australis, tenella, lateriflora, beaugleholei & gibba.

    Not quite as diverse as WA but still nice just the same.

    Regards,

    Sean.

    Yeah, well Mates, I had this plant in my backyard as well, too bad they didn't look like this!!! Still, I appreciated the amazingly looooong tentacles, and the very glandular scapes. My plants never got more than a cm in diameter, how large are the ones in this photo?

    Seed was remarkably difficult to germinate for me. Do you have any good protocol for germination of this species?

    I understand this is a dry growing species, found on tops of sandy dunes as opposed to being found at the bases. Do you think the plant gets a long root system in habitat (like the pygmy species), seeking the water deep down while preferring a dry medium to grow on?

    This is also supposed to be the "quick draw" of the Drosera genus. Have you noted the rapid tentacle movement of the long tentacles: I believe I read a fraction of a second....geez!

    Seandew, I am almost out of gush for your photos! I can gush no more than I already have: the photos are wonderful windows on species most of us "up over" will never lay eyes on! Thanks for sharing them!
