    Wow, very cool, and those Photoes are awsome. Where is this thing native to? 120 F is crazy!

    I believe Drosera falconeri is from the Darwin region of Northern Australia.

    It is repeatable/replicable. I had placed 3 other manually detached Drosera falconeri basal leaf segments into the same conditions which produced the first little leaf budded plantlet. This was about 5 days ago. I have been observing them every other day. This morning Tuesday, 15Oct02 I noticed that one of the segments had a small Drosera falconeri plantlet formed and growing. I am excited; these plantlets were produced from leaves that no longer had living leaf blades or even much of a petiole remaining.

    Hoooorah! Joseph, you are the cutting edge! Maybe soon we can look forward to seeing an end to 35.00 Tc'd clones of this fantastic species. How close to the incandescent bulbs did you keep the minigreenhouse this time?

    Not as close as the first time, that is for sure. This time I put the little greenhouse adjacent to the light and not directly in the path of the light. The adult plants are about ten inches from the front of the lamp and I placed the little greenhouse where the light would fall on it just from the outside edge of the light, that which escaped the aluminum reflector (it is one of those clip-on lamps with the aluminum bell-shapped reflector). The little box gets pretty warm, about 110F, but at least they are not cooking like the first time I tried this.

    Today I have begun the experiment. I am trying Drosera falconeri, darwinensis x falconer1 and dilatato-petiolaris. Stay tuned for breaking news!
