    My D. dichotoma is in bloom. I have read that most binata species are not self fertile. Is this true with dichotoma as well? I have been attempting to pollinate them with a small paintbrush just in case. There was some question a few weeks ago wheather this is a dichotoma or just a large binata, since then it has formed its first multiple point leaf. Hopefully you can all see it in the somewhat poor photo. Enjoy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]







    Couldnt seem to get a good pic of the flower [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Hi Steve,

    Nice photos - thanks for sharing. It certainly looks to me like the real D.binata var dichotoma 'Giant' type. I can't quite see from the photo, but if it had amber coloured tentacles then that is one distinctive indication of this variety (at least in my experience). Good luck with your plants!

    I don't think this variety is self-fertile: it may be worth crossing it with another D.binata variety or clone to produce seed.
    Kind regards,

    Adam.

    I'm mainly interested in Drosera, Dionaea & Aldrovanda, Hardy Orchids (esp Dactylorhiza), Arums and Ericas (Heaths/Heathers - European + S.African)

    Yes does look like young Drosera binata var dichotoma 'Gaint'. A mature plant has 4 point per leaf. It not self fertile, but will cross with other varieites. The only form I seen that it is self fertile is dichtotoma "Small Red".
    The cultivar 'Marston's Dragon' is from a cross of Drosera binata dichotoma "Gaint" x binata mutlifida 'extrema'
