    D. linearis "Michigan"

    I did a simple test: Poured a solution of crushed sea shells into a cup holding a small Super Sundew which was forming a weak flower stalk. After the phosphate dose there was a growth spurt and the flower opened perfectly with much pollen. I wish all you growing linearis good luck as it is a...

    D. linearis "Michigan"

    Bone meal would be more fun:) I have been growing Alpine D. anglica (var. pusilla) and my Super Sundew on neutral to slightly alkaline gravel including decomposed granite. Looks good topped with live sphagnum. More info: D. anglica Alpine x HI

    D. linearis "Michigan"

    All true hcarlton. I’d like to add: while reading through the fen habitat section of Schnell’s book, and after giving up growing linearis, I learned that those fen soils are rather high in Phosphorus; an essential element lacking in more typical bog soils. If I were to try again I would add...

    Your mystery sundew looks like my D. burmannii Beerwah. I do believe you have the true sessilifolia. Beautiful; congrats.

    Hcarlton's hybrids

    On page 17 is a photo of your possible brevifolia x anglica. Could be. Did it flower? I’m wondering how it looked.

    Sorry Hawken, I agree with Schnell. You really ought to read his book. The newly discovered D. filiformis forma viridis was found in New Jersey. I’m glad at least no one is trying to suggest it might actually be a form of tracyi. https://cpn.carnivorousplants.org/Article.php/CPNv49n2p85-86

    Rat Snakes; fascinating. Schnell’s book gives some really excellent info on the two varieties. If you think you know something he may have missed, please tell us. Especially neat, Schnell predicted an all green form of var. filiformis might be discovered which would set to rest species tracyi...

    Yes, neat and unique. But sadly too tall for my indoor lighting setup. The two are interfertile, so why split? Don Schnell gives more reasoning for calling the two varieties in his book.

    A few exciting hybrids

    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 do you all reckon?

    Dawn of the Super Dew

    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 raised from seed in a micro bog on soil from here in the Los Angeles area along with native...
