    Question

    'corse, there's still a lot of debate on how closely related the plants are, but with the sundew familly being so old and so big, it shouldn't be a surprise to find even less dewish plants in the familly [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    The sundew drosera falconeri is very simular looking to the vft (wide petiole, trap with crease in center , the majority of tentacles around the trap, and also the way the traps unfrurl).

    Hey Guys, don't forget: They may be in the same family, but in a different genous. Therein lies the huge differences, and why you can't really cross breed them. I know someone tried it before, and supposedly they got sprouts, but those sprouts promptly died.

    The family Droseraceae actually contains several genous of cp's: Drosera (duh), dionaea, aldrovanda, (some one help out if I'm missing any, or I've mistakenly included any).

    edit:Arg! Goldtrap, you're right!

    I also remember reading that the VFT's closest realative is the aldrovanda...I wonder if anyone's every tried to cross those...or if it would even work...

    i've noticed that before pond boy , alot of similarities . scoalty , byblis belongs in the bibliceae family , not droseraceae , and drosophyllum is in another family as well , believe it or not , drosophyllum are actually more related to nepenthes or was it with flytraps and sundew , can't remeber for sure . [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] , confusing ain't it , probably the sudnew family adopted dionaea as there new son [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    We may see that Dionaea gets its own Family name in the future. Donald E. Schnell points out in his book, Carnivorous Plants of the United States and Canada, Second Edition, 2002, that Dionaea has enough differences that it should be placed in its own Family, Dionaeceae.

    The reasons for this is that the trapping mechanisms and leaves are entirely different, Dionaea has a rhizome, and the flowers have important differences. (Schnell, 2002).

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!
