    Hi Tamlin,

    The seed is indeed fertile! This hybrid is very nice in a group planting, as some flowers turn out white while others are pink, as you could imagine. Very pleasing effect.

    My d. capillaris Tate's #### Swamp only recently started flower, but I shall send you seed once it sets.

    cheers,

    -noah

    Just to clear up an all too common spelling mistake relating to a form of D. spatulata originating from a location off the north-eastern coast of Australia. I think that I am yet to see the location spelt correctly. Being an Australian I may sound a bit petty, but I cringe whenever I see the mistake.

    The form I am referring to is Drosera spatulata 'Fraser Island'.

    Fraser Island (not Frasier as it is usually spelt by growers) is the largest sand island in the world and has large populations of D.spatulata, binata and various other species. It is also the habitat of the form known as D. spatulata var. lovellae, previously known as D. lovellae.

    So everybody, please fix up your labels

    Sean.

    Thanks for the spelling correction Sean, I have ammended my growlist.

    I just had my first look at the Gympie form of D. spatulata from photos just sent to me by Robert Gibson. The flower on this form is very surprising in its size, and I wish I had a higher resolution photo of it to share. Sometimes I think Robert is telepathic. It's almost like he knew of this topic.

    Regarding D. spatulata "lovellae" growers of this form should check their flowers to make sure the syle and ovaries of their plants are in groups of four, and not three as is common with this species.

    Pondboy, please note that The “Kansai” Form = D. tokaiensis, not the "Kanto" form as your post states.
