    Fernando replied to my inquiry about this plant, and agrees with me that it is D. spatulata. It might not be a Brazillian species, but it sure is beautiful.

    This is a good example of why it is good to try out what other growers have in their collection. The variability in the genus Drosera is always a surprise and a delight. By accepting plants and seeds of species already in your collection you open the door to experiencing the beauty of this diversity while coming to appreciate what makes them the same.

    Spec,

    Sorry I missed your post :-) I grow these plants just as all my other tropical species. This means outdoors from April to October and inside in the winter directly beneath 8 balanced spectrum 40 watt flourescent lights, tray watered, occasionally allowed to dry off to just moist. Temp. ranges vary with the season. Winter generally 65F days 50F nights, in summer whatever the Mother wills :-) but generally 75-80F days and 65F nights except in the hottest part of the summer. All do receive a good night time drop in temperature year round, and I think this contributes to the vigor of all my plants.

    Yes, the seed is available as AWK-1, but who knows what the plants will look like if you grow them? These plants respond differently to different growers techniques, and many small differences in climate and substrate composition. No matter how you grow them, if you grow them well, they will be rewarding :-)

    Those plants look quite similar to a D. spatulata form I grow which came to me as seeds of 'lovellae', but as they have quite dark pink flowers, I doubt there are this form. They are however, my favourite D. spatulata in my collection at the moment.

    It's at times like this that I realise how useful a digital camera is (I'm working on it). My plants are just sending up their flower scapes at the moment, fancy a swap?
