    I remember that I sorted the mystery species from the Lake Badgerup plants last winter,and was reminded of the fact when they started to flower today, so it was easier than I thought to photograph the rosette. The rosettes are very similar - identical to each other when viewed side by side. The only difference is that they are slightly larger on the 'Carbarup' plants, but this is probably environmental.

    'Carbarup'





    Mystery




    I've also noticed that the flowers on the 'mystery' plant occasionally have 5 styles, does this happen with the 'Carbarup' (C1) plants too?

    Vic,

    Flowers of the "Carbarup" form are variably 4-merous or 5-merous, and there is variability as well in the petal shape.
    I have plants of larger and smaller rosette size, and differing shades of pink as well. Other D. nitidula hybrids (i.e. x pygmaea, "Badgerup", x pulchella are mostly white flowered, and the styles on these have different orientation)


    The pinkish color, straight knob shaped styles and stipular cone all suggest that this is D. nitidula x occidentalis "Carbarup".

    Thanks for all the help on this one Tamlin, I guess I'll be offering plenty of free 'Carbarup' gemmae to growers in the UK this Winter.

    Cheers

    Tamlin, You know my mystery dews? Well, they are my healthiest plants now, but still just 3/4-1cm in diameter so I am guessing they are in fact Pygmi grown from seed. As unushual as it sounds, I can't think of any other explanation for their super ultra tineyness (although I still haven't a clue where they came from). Any how, seeing as they are from seed, how old do you figure they will be befor they flower? They will be 1 year old come october so I would guess they flower septemberish once mature, but I don't know when pygmi from seed reach adulthood.

    Hi Darcie,

    I can't help you with this question, I have never grown pygmys from seed since in my cultivation such seed is a rare event. I would imagine it takes at least a season or 2 before the plants reach floweing size.

    Here is a picture of my unknown Pygmy sundew. You have any ideas what kind of Pygmy I have?

    Hi Travis, that does not look like a pygmae. Seems to be a young plant of Drosera spatulata or similar species.

    Really? Huh...I have had the spatulata for about a year and half now. It has been pretty good...as in nothing has changed really. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] Thanks, JanW
