    First off, yes someone has tried making a VFT x Drosera cross-- VFT x D. regia to be precise. This is probably the only way the cross would work because it is the only Drosera even close enough genetically to the VFT.[/QUOTE]
    You answered my question Pyro, I was wondering why they tried with a D.regia and not a D.Capensis. As D.capensis is know for being a weed in collections and at times seems indestructible.

    I think it has something to do with the number of chromosones. D. Regia is closer genetically to a VFT than D. Capensis is.

    Yes SF you are correct, D. regia is genetically the closest Drosera to a VFT. Even so, the two plants are actually quite distant in terms of phylogeny
