    I thought maybe some of you might like to see some very rare Drosera photos. As far as I know, these are the only photos currently on the web of Drosera ramentacea; there are 3 photos which come courtesty of Robert Gibson, and a single photo of Drosera cendeensis courtesy of Fernando Rivadavia. Please do not repost or use without prior permission. The photos may be viewed at my Yahoo page at:

    (the rest of the photos are my own plants)

    Thank you for the compliment. My plants are grown under lights for the cold months and outdoors during the warmer months. I use a LOT of light: 8 growlight tubes. Plants are kept within 4 inches of the tubes.

    Some good pics there and a few things I don't have. Can I send a bribe I've got a D. ramentacea pic on my yahoo page Just can't work out how to find it and can't work out how to get the pic on here. Modern technologololy is just too much for some of us.

    Hi Greg!

    I am unable to post any photos from my yahoo site either, so don't feel too dense about that! Bob Z. prefers not to link to yahoo sites since they tend to be ephremal, but if you want to get it onto his site I will be happy to post your photo with appropriate credits onto one of my sites. Alas, none of my sites allows for posting to the Forum! How about posting the addy to your yahoo group, we'd love to see your photos!

    Does your D. ramentacea ever set seed ?

    Darcie,

    D. hirtella var hirtella is quite a rare species in cultivation, so your plant is not likely to be this species. There are other less rare Drosera species that are similar to D. hirtella var hirtella like D. brevifolia or possibly one of the many (apparently) introgressed forms in the D. capillaris complex.

    Okay well, they looked exactly like that plant so I would imagin that they were a commen look alike. Too bad they died (sunburned weekend, fungi took out, yes, I got the fungiside out after that).

    Nice pics. However, the plant that is pictured is not D. esterhuizenae. That plant is not a compact rosette. The plant you have pictured looks more like a burmanii or a sessilifolia (although from the picture I can't tell how big the plant is)....

    Here is an image of D. esterhuizenae
