    Just a couple of points;

    1. There is no such plant as D. roseana spp. stelliflora, D. roseana and D. stelliflora are both considered subspecies of D. palacea by some authorities, including the ICPS Carnivorous Plant Database and as separate species by others, notably Allen Lowrie.

    2. All the sub-species of D. palacea grow well for me in fairly small pots (3 inch) and don't go dormant in summer. I do grow several pygmies in much larger pots, but with space at a premium, I only do this when I can see a benefit.

    Vic, sorry that was a mistake by me, the plant I am referring to is D. palecea spp. stelliflora that is still producing gemmae. D. palecea spp. roseana is the current species being sent out and is the plant in the photo graph.

    No need to apologise Dustin, I was just pointing out the mistake. It's just best to get names right, especially if the gemmae are going to find their way into the care of newbies etc.

    Thumbs up

    I got the gemmae yesterday! They were planted right away in a custom 8" PVC pot. Thanks again!

    Yikes. I just found the envelope that was supposed to go out with the mail last week. It's on the way now, and I hope there's enough left for me.
