    Man... a bug doesn't have a chance around those babies. Nice pics Martin.
    There's a tunnel at the end of the light...

    The second link Dylam provided looks like a 'Marston Dragon' picture taken at California Carnivores.

    I don't think the light requirement affects forking for all D. binata forms. My experience with
    D. binata dichotoma 'Giant' is that the leaf tips turn black in the sun. I imagine this is from low(er) humidity, but reportedly a clone of this plant wasn't doing well in Florida either. This may rule out the lower humidity argument.

    I moved the dichotoma to the shade next to the D. adelae, which seems okay for it. My multifida extrema seems to flourish in the indoor sunny location and has no black tips. It does not fork more than once though, but it seems to be relative young plant.

    Jeff. If you really have trouble finding multifida or marston dragon you can contact me... I know a place that sells only In canada, but like you guys, I think they provide favours... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    If they don't wanna send I can try to be a middle man for ya... I'm making a largish order with them later in the summer to sorta, fill my collection (i wont be the one keeping the plants ironically, i'm trading all the ones I order, hehehe)... What do you think?

    Hi Guys,
    There are nine diferent clones of D. binata in cultivation here in the UK:
    D binata T form
    D binata CV, is the form that Martin posted his T form picture that forks sometimes into 4 but is described in Adrian Slack's book 'Carnivorous Plants'
    D binata multifida (white flowers)
    D binata multifida (pink flowers)
    D binata multifida extrema
    D binata T for large (yellow tentacles, robost leaf balde and occasionally makes a 4 pointed leaf.
    D binata dichotoma small type
    D binata giant type (always stands bolt upright for me&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    D.binata x 'marston dragon'

    I have heard about a yellow flowered form as well, but not yet confirmed in the UK.

    I have all except the dichotoma 'small type' and I think no one knows for sure exactly what it looks like or has it even. personally I think it is a great Drosera, and underrated!
    Best Regards

    never thought about a hanging basket.

    That would be cool...

    Now I just have to find a basket... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I have them in 6-8 inch pots that hang over my benches. They look great, and the only browning that I get is when I get a new one in trade [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] they grow out new leaves that are perfect!

    I have some pics of some of the binata that I have, hopefully I can get them up ( along with others ).

    Thanks for all the help guys!!

    I really appreciate it!

    I love binata, and I think that they do need more attention Mike.

    Cheers
