    Tough to say, when you only own 10% of this Family.

    But, my vote would be Drosera Multifida "Extrema"! The fact that it can fork over 60 times casting a beautiful crimson Web of death traps, makes it one of the most intriguing to hobbyists and outside spectators alike!

    To boast an entire Drosera group I'd say the Tuberous. They have many curious unique plants and probably the group of Drosera that interest me the most, at the moment.

    Homer, I just got my first prolifera! I'd been seeking it for some time now and I'm excited to have it in my collection! Now I only need D. Schizandra to get all three Queensland Sisters! Woohoo!

    Although I love my native Brazilian species like D.graminifolia, D.chrysolepis, D.villosa, D.ascendens, D.graomogolensis, and others, I have to admit I have a strong attraction to the petiolaris-complex.
    After seeing the huge flowering D.regia at the Bonn Botanical Garden during the 1998 ICPS Congress, this also became one of my favorite species.
    Although I couldn't find the mysterious D.meristocaulis on Neblina during the 1998/99 expedition, this is certainly one of my favorites too (it's fantastic enough in herbarium specimens!).
    But my favorite Drosera species is neither of the above, not even Brazilian. It is D.cistiflora. Since I saw this species in the wild in S.Africa, it has been #1 on my list. In my opinion this species has all that makes any Drosera fantastic. It has the overall large size, with long leaves and long stems. It forms large populations which can easily be spotted because of their size. They grow in areas with magnificent scenery.
    And best of all, they not only have the largest flowers in the genus, together with D.pauciflora, but also the most amazing colors. It would be sufficiently fabulous if they only came in purple, for example. But they had to go a step further and also be found with red flowers, lilac, white, yellow, etc.
    In all its variability, size, and colors, D.cistiflora is surely a star of the genus Drosera.

    Wow Fernando...I'm sold! What a great job of describing D. cistiflora. It sounds like a fantastic plant. Did you by any chance get any photos of the plants in the wild in S. Africa? Examples of flower colors? That would be impressive to see.

    Thanks for sharing such a glowing review of cistiflora. Yet another plant to dream of...

    My own partiality is for the petiolaris species. I mean the Brazilian species. Or maybe the pygmy species? I suppose if I were ever to get D. pauciflora or D. cistaflora into my collection they would steal my heart. The fact is, I love them all so I didn't even vote. Impossible!

    Right now I`d have to say D.spat no.1 since it has a rosette just over 2 in. and is pushing up a scape! Cant wait for the seed.......
