    They do grow from seed. Ivan did quite a lot of selection before distributing materials. You won't find F1 or F2 CA x HI...

    Hi Emesis,

    Thanks for the pointer. As it doesn't seem that alphabetical order is mandatory, I will continue listing the female parent first, as "her" characteristics are more distinctly seen in the offspring, and this allows me to keep these records without adding extra nomenclatural symbols or lettering.

    cheers,

    -noah

    Hi guys,

    Noah I dunno what it says on the label but i just knew it was one or the other, I'll correct it though if it is written with HI first.

    Forbes, my mix is peat and sand my typical Drosera medium mix. I can transplant into live sphagnum if you think it would be feasible for the plants health.

    NG,

    I don't what your plant looks like or what stresses it may or may not be under, so can't give a definite "yes" or "no." I would rip it out, though. They naturally grow in sphagnum and have roots that reflect that habit. A heavy mix tends to stunt them.

    If you do transplant, try a leaf cutting while you're at it. They strike well on sphagnum or in water.

    Forbes, thanks for the advice, I'll transplant them to some live sphag then. AFAIK, the plants are under no stress besides the wrong soil type. They've caugth quite a few gnats and gorw...just aren't big like your wonderful plant.
