    Hi again,

    Next up are the pale flowered species. Not as spectacular as the orange flowered species but but still beautiful none-the-less.

    Firstly, the lovely pale pink flowered Drosera helodes. Here is a closeup of the red spotted flower-

    and a view of the entire plant with flower-

    Now a closeup of a Drosera ericksoniae flower-

    A clump of white Drosera dichrosepala flowers-

    And finally a shot of a multiflowered scape of Drosera paleacea ssp. stelliflora-

    This is what you guys can look forward to this coming Spring! All of these plants and those from the previous post were grown from gemmae planted in July this year!

    Regards,

    Sean.

    I MUST find that D. helodes this season!!! What a beauty! Keep them coming Sean....eventually we are going to produce a "World of Pygmy Drosera" site, complete with habitat photos, photos of rosettes, flowers and gemmae, juvenille plants, maps, substrates in habitat, cultural advice.....I have dreamed of such a site for years! Your expertise will make it all happen (along with your magnificent photos, of course!)

    Thanks again for bringing a little of the Australian spring into the Northern hemisphere!
