    No, Drosera spatulata does not have any dormancy requirement as it is a tropical species.

    And it is spelled "spatulata" not "spathulata".

    Nope, no dormancy needed. It will produce alot of seed via self pollination. Most likely, you will get the 'Kansai' type.

    Hmmmm, I think it more likely that you will get the "Kanto" type as it has the greater distribution. "Kansai" is found only in a small range in Tokyo.

    :-) It is the mark of a serious student of Drosera species to correctly spell "spatulata". If you get this one right, those that KNOW will say "Ah, a wise one!", and the gates of the kingdom will open! BTW, I mis-spelled this species for over 20 years, up to about 2 years ago!

    Really, "Kanto" is more common then "Kansai"? All people I know that grow one spatulata type is usually "Kansai".

    D. spatulata "Kansai" is a naturally occuring hybrid between D. rotundifolia x D. spatulata and has been described as a new species, D. tokaiensis, by Nakamura and Ueda in 1991. It is of very limited occurrence in Shikoku and southern Honshu, Japan.

    So is D. tokaiensis a 40 chromisome reproductive version of D. rotundifolia x D. spatulata like D. Anglica is a 40 chromisome reproductive version of D. rotundifolia x D. linearus(sp?)?

    You are correct with D. anglica, which is 2N=40. As for the allopatric hybrid D. tokaiensis: D. rotundifolia (20 chromosomes) + D. spatulata (40 chromosomes)= D. tokaiensis (60 chromosomes).
