    How in the heck do you take such beutiful closeups like that? I try that and my camera is either blurry or it is to dark to take a picture. If I use the flash then it is to bright. I will never cut it as a photographer like PinguiculaMan! Butt if I go by my quote "I will never be done!" I should be alright.

    Travis,

    Here's how I take pictures of flowers and the like. The camera obviously focuses on whatever it thinks you're taking a picture of. Most of the time then, you'll get a nice picture of the background. To solve this problem, I put the flower right up next to a piece of black construction paper, and also stuck a milk jug lid next to it. The camera focused on the lid and the flower was in focus too. The flower picture in my avatar was taken with a similar process.

    Good luck!

    Sorry to keep harping on this subject, but consider it a part of my efforts to educate. There is no Drosera capillaris "Giant Form": Size is relative, and it must be relative to a standard if it is going to be meaningful. Since there are no published or registered cultivar descriptions regarding this "Giant" it does not yet exist, and anyone growing and sharing this specific material should either eliminate that name and call the plant simply Drosera capillaris, or else register the plant name along with a description and photograph so that it creates a standard for others to compare their plants with. Unpublished names are termed "Bogus" and their use only creates more ID confusion for other growers further down the line.

    The photos don't show for me, but this seed is also listed in the ICPS seedbank. It was sensitively collected in habitat by friend Ivan Snyder. The ID is positive.

    Hi,

    I have no idea, why i can't use the thumbnails here! I have done this several time without any problems at all. I hope at least the links are working now. If not, the addresses to the pictures are :

    Pond boy, You must not have gotten the PM I sent a few months ago. That is a capillaris 'giant', not capensis. This was sold by PFT as D. cap 'Giant'.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    No I didn`t thanks! Makes sence how big will it eventually get? It is currently about 3\4 of an inch but is very vigorous and jam packed with leaves! It also looks different then the other d.capillaris you sent me.the regular one is green with red glands and the "giant" one is more bronzey with red tenticles.
