    You got in just before me Greg. Very interesting thoughts and something that I've never considered. I guess you'd notice such things before myself due to the impressive collection you possess. Makes me think I need to have a close look at my entire collection and reassess which species I actually have.

    Great to see you have a new glasshouse erected to increase your collection again to where it used to be. I'll have to come and have a look at some stage. Is the glasshouse still in Engadine or have you moved somewhere else?

    Sean.

    G'day Sean,

    The new glass house is not up yet. I will be moving south of Engadine in early December. I'd be interested in all of the plants you listed at some stage if you can help me out. I should have something to trade when I come down in December

    Yes some (or one) of the finds was in WA

    Thanks
    Greg

    One of my Drosera admirabilis forms flowered for the first time a couple of days ago. It seems to match perfectly with the pictures that Vic posted all those pages ago. Here is a shot of the flower-

    And here is a shot of the whole plant in flower-

    Do you grow this plant yet Tamlin or anybody else?

    Yes I do, but it is MUCH smaller than this beauty. I think Vic also mentioned his plant was diminuative. I assume like so many of the other South African species that there is variation. My plants are still juvenille, but I'll keep you posted as to how they perform, but I doubt that they will reach this size. Nice work there mate!

    My plants will be in flower as of tomorrow. The same clone as yours Sean. I've crossed this with a few species including aliciae. This hybrid is very slow and not much good. I think it is best to let them self and spread it around. I'll have plenty of seed in a few weeks.

    Hi Greg,

    The plant pictured is actually a different clone than the one you gave me. The one I got from you is just beginning to form a flowerscape now. I'm planning on letting mine self as well. There will be plenty of admirabilis seed going around between the 2 of us.

    Sean.
