    Well, are you?


    I've seen it listed in a million places, and a good chunk of us have at least read a post or two about it, but I still haven't for the life of me been able to figure out why it has this name.

    So, anyone growing this?

    Do you have a photo of it? I've never seen or heard of this one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    I haven't found a photo as of yet, but Barry Rice gave a description of this plant here:

    http://www.omnisterra.com/botany/cp/...all.d/0922.htm

    I know B&T seed world or world seed whichever sells seed for this plant, but if it's a cultivar than it would be a very expensive waste of money. Which reminds me...they owe me seed I ordered a few months back.

    There is also another would be cultivar referred to as "crestate".

    If memory serves, I believe Drosera capensis called Merry-Go-Round was produced by a company called, "Sundew Environments" by Owen Tallman.
