    I don't remember much beyond SIMPLE Mendelian genetics. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Joe, that's a good site. Reminds me of 12th grade bio. And to think I thought plant reproduction was boring....

    They are all beginning to get a red "tinge" to them!

    Looking good! It might also be a function of good lighting, as opposed to the particular cultivar. Drosera, especially, turn red in good lighting.

    I am glad you mentioned that the lighting might be good. I have 3 shop lighting fixtures in there and each has 2 nice long bulbs. I swapped out all the bulbs that I had in there for those specialty grow bulbs. I am glad it appears they are providing the requisite spectrum. Those little D. filiformis (All Reds) [Editors comments: Single quotes should be reserved for use on registered cultivars only, other punctuation such as parentheses can be used for informal descriptive terms, e.g. Drosera filiformis (All red, found in the deep dark southeastern USA). Single quotes are reserved for use on registered cultivars.] are definitely turning red.

    I did also back off the water on these too based on everyone's suggestions to do so. So far it doesn't look as if anything is rotting in there. This is a good thing.

    This is my filiformis all (Washington County) red having a snack last year. It is now in dormancy and looks like a small green and black golf ball.

    Beautiful photograph. I'd love to see what it looks like in the little dormant small green and black golf ball stage.
