    Thanks for the note of troubles with your German anglica. Makes me treasure the fortuitous creation of my anglica CA X HI all the more.

    I’ve been wonder if maybe P. lusitanica and villosa might hybridize and make a fertile hybrid. Not that this would be a real beauty; it interests me to hybridize and test relationships as well. What...

    I am using acidic rain water in this boglet. I test soil and water samples using a cheap pH test kit from pet stores. Fun to experiment with different soils I find here and there.

    Dawn of the Super Dew

    I have been breeding my creation D. x obovata ‘Ivan’s Paddle’, selecting clones able to grow in extreme conditions which kill other sundews; including the mighty Cape Sundew. Pictured is one example...

    Thanks for your thoughts. The fertility increased gradually over several generations.

  12. Original D. x obovata ‘Ivan’s Paddle’

    I created this cultivar of a tropical growing fertile tetraploid D. x obovata. My manmade hybrid is unique and of scientific interest because the natural triploid hybrid is sterile, unable to produce...

    I admit I am wildly speculating. But it is a sad fact that the now so-called Los Angeles River is mostly a concrete channel. One of the two “bog”s listed on the old Rancho San Pedro map was along...

    I am sure most growers would prefer a large D. anglica such as my CA X HI creation. But I have been thinking a small annual form would be better equipped for survival in the ephemeral seeps of my...

    Thanks for the replies. Another neat thing about the alpine D. anglica: I read before I got it that like D. linearis, this sundew also tolerates alkaline soil. I tested by planting on beach sand from...

    I made this hybrid a few years ago. One plant in the latest generation is smaller than the Hawaiian; the longest leaf so far has not...

    I really like this pink flowered D. brevifolia. I had one myself years ago, also from Texas. I also have a white flowered plant from North Carolina. Years ago I crossed the two. The hybrid did not...

    Good eyes guys, they are not actually butterworts. Nor is that sphagnum moss. I’ve been fooled a few times here, at first glance. No dew and no captured bugs. The plant is Dudleya lanceolata. Thanks...
  20. Found this new wild site, in Southern California

    While exploring a new canyon on the Palos Verdes Peninsula I was astonished to see this site: Butterworts and sphagnum moss growing on a seeping rock face! However, the butterworts were not the...

    Thanks for your interest and thoughts guys. I fed my plants more stuff. There does seem to be digestion going on, but I cannot really tell if it is by bacteria. Also, there is a growth spurt...

    It sure looks like it’s digesting that fruit fly butt. I’ll have to see if the fluid dissolves gelatin. Right now I’m waiting to see if there is a growth spurt after feeding. You can see one sundew...

    I should also mention: P. macroceras and P. vulgaris do hybridize and the hybrid is perfectly fertile. I made this hybrid years ago. The first generation hybrids grew vigorously. However, following...
