    Great show. Thanks everybody. Really love this one.

    Anyone have any experience producing seed from this species?

    I have seedlings appearing in pots all over the place from this species. It is becomnig as big a 'weed' as capensis in my collection. It is beginning to become a bit annoying when I think that some of my South American Drosera seed is germinating only to quickly grow into a venusta. Still a beautiful plant though.

    I'll post a shot of my extremely red plants when I get home from work.

    Here is a shot of one of my plants. It grows in very high light levels and attains a nice reddish hue. It is one of the few Drosera in my greenhouse that haven't seemed to be knocked backwards by the extreme temperatures we are experiencing at this time of year.

    I was just wondering does D.venusta self pollinate?

    Hi all,

    Here is picture of a flower and of a seed from one of my plants :


    Drosera venusta - flower in higher resolution

    My plants also set lots of seeds without manual pollination.


    Drosera venusta - seed in higher resolution

    The seed is approximately 0,55mm long and 0,08mm wide.

    It is a fairly straighforward plant to grow, although I do confirm Robert Gibson's observation that flowering often sets back the plant's growth for months. This is one species that I nip the scapes on. Other growrs have not noticed this effect, but it is universal amongst my plants. Something to keep an eye on perhaps.
