    Since the post on South African species is getting some good results I thought I would open some threads to keep things sorted.

    Please add your comments, thoughts and photos/links on Drosera nidiformis to this thread. Thanks!

    I believe I grow the real nidiformis. Maybe I'll post a pick if I can get my Cam to work!

    Thanks Tristan, I would really appreciate the photos, as there is some confusion in my mind regarding nidiformis vs. affinis and I am not overly familiar with either species. I use Obermeyer's Droseracea The Flora of Southern Africa Vol. 13

    (which is on-line at http://www.omnisterra.com/botany/cp/...osera/0075.htm for those interested)

    and he makes no reference of nidiformis. Since I do not have Paul Debbert's protologue, I am a little vague.

    For a long time nidiformis was considered a variant of dielsiana, and this fact further enhances my confusion!

    Hi,

    I've read about the connection to dielsiana too, which is strange since it seems that the general consensus now is that the plant that was known in cultivation as D. sp. 'MagaliesbUrg'/MagaliesbErg is in fact D. nidiformis. I don't know why this change happened because I can't see how dielsiana can be confused with D. sp. Magaliesberg/burg. I have to add though, that I don't have personal experience with this species.

    Regards,

    Christer

    Christer,

    Is there any way you can post me a photo of sp. 'MagaliesbUrg'/MagaliesbErg or email me one? I have never seen this, so I am not sure how to answer.

    Check out my post under coccicaulis for a bit of history on how these determinations were made. Most have very little to do with the overall appearance of the plants, but rather from morphometric measurments.

    Sorry to post in reply to this old topic.
    Does anybody know what colour the flower of D. nidiformis has?

    Cheers,

    I remember that the sp.Magaliesburg was renamed D.nidiformis...
