    Hi All,

    Here are two pictures of my Drosera burkeana. The plant is still very small. I got them about 2 month ago. What do you think ? Could this be Drosera burkeana ?

    My initial impression is yes, this could be D. burkeana, or if you are lucky, D. pilosa - provided that the material originated in South Africa.

    The pitted seed coat would be your best determinator. Should this plant prosper enough to produce seed, I would be very interested in seeing some of it.

    Hello,

    My Drosera collinsiae flowers at the moment. Today one of my plants produce a flower with 6 petals and 3 styles. Here is the picture of the flower, as well as a picture of some of my plants.

    It's me Christian got the D. burkeana from.
    My plants flowered recently - sorry, I don't have a digi cam, so I couldn't take photos. But I have seeds!
    I'm happy to send a good number to you, Tamlin.
    If you're interested, please e-mail me privately.

    @Christian:
    Do you still want seeds--in addition to the plant?

    Best wishes,
    Marcus

    Here are a couple of photos of the plants I'm growing as D. dielsiana, all comments welcome, are they correctly IDed? I grew them from seed from the UK CPS Seed Bank.

    2. Flower, they are a bit darker in reality.

    Hi Vic,

    Your plants look similar to the plant in the right corner of the photo i posted above [I don't believe it's Drosera dielsiana anymore (too big, repeatedly divided styles, form of the leaves)]. The flowers of your plant look differnet to the of mine. Take a look at the pictures, i posted above. Can you say anything about the size of your plants, or the height of the flower stalks ? I would be interested in this.

    Here is a photo of a plant i have as Drosera dielsiana. I believe it's correctly identified. They look quite different to yours. The diameter is 3.5cm and the flower stalks reach up to 25cm.




    best wishes

    Hi Christian

    I'm not sure that they are D. dielsiana either, I'm also aware of the taxonomic nightmare that most S. African rosetted sundews present.

    The largest rosette in my colony has a diameter of 3.5 cm and the tallest flower stalk is 25cm, which is an amazing coincidence!!, but true, I've just measured them without reference to your dimensions.

    Maybe the flower picture isn't too clear, just my luck to catch them flowering on a cloudy day. The styles on my plants are not repeatedly divided however. They are only divided once = bifurcate, though this is more obvious, or deeply so, on my flowers than on the picture Tamlin posted above.

    Cheers

    Vic
