    Not too sure about NZ, if you can find Bruce Salmons book on CPs in New Zealand you may get some info on sites where you can find peltata and auriculata as well as all the other NZ species.

    Around Lismore your friend may be able to find D. peltata, auriculata and macrantha ssp. planchonii. Tell him/her to check out any dry open Eucalypt forest that is not too high in elevation- sea level will probably be best. I'm sure that D. peltata and auriculata will be very common around there. Unfortunately D. whittakerii ssp. aberrans doesn't grow that far north. They won't have emerged from dormancy yet but should appear in about 6-8 weeks.

    Sorry to tell you this Nep29 but Drosera burmannii does not occur in New Zealand. Maybe the plant it grows with is Drosera spatulata which is fairly common in New Zealand.

    By the way it is spelt Drosera peltata, not pleata. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    When I talk about Eucalyptus forest I am talking about around Lismore, not NZ. Eucalypts don't grow naturally in NZ.

    Most of the forest in eastern Australia is Eucalypt which is why you mostly find D. peltata in these forests.

    The plants like to grow in disturbed areas also- such as roadsides, under powerlines and in paddocks. They like these areas because they get plenty of sun (which they love) and little competition from other plants. Because they grow very quickly and easily from seed they can colonise these areas quickly.

    Another reason they can do well better in these areas than many other plants is because they go dormant in Summer. These spots usually get quite hot and dry in Summer and many other plants don't like these conditions. The D. peltata die back in Summer and wait for the areas to become moist again. During the hot Summer many other plants that will have tried to grow and survive in the same places will have died.
