    Grampians N.P., south eastern Australia

    Firstly, an apology to those using dial-up. The following fieldtrip occurred over the past weekend and of the 400+ photos that were taken, I was only able to knock the total down to around 80. It may take awhile to get through these if you have a slow connection. This is by far the longest post...

    Just a few photos of my fan-leaved tuberous Drosera in the greenhouse today. Haven't been able to post photos here for quite a while now so I thought I'd give it another go. Drosera stolonifera ssp. stolonifera "Harvey, WA" in flower. A nice robust light green coloured form. and its flowers...

    Australian Orchid Photos

    Hi All, I've just finished uploading many of the Australian Native Terrestrial Orchid photos during fieldtrips I took last year to my new website. The great thing about searching for Australian CPs is that these orchids usually grow right alongside them. If you are interested check out the...

    Seed for trade

    Hi all, I have a few seed packets I'd like to trade with anybody that may be interested. I'm basically interested in seed of other Drosera species but you can offer anything else and I may be interested (except Sarras, they take up too much space!). Here's the list- Drosera admirabilis- 5...

    Utric hybridization attempt

    Hi guys, I was mucking around in the greenhouse a couple of days ago and thought I'd have a go at pollinating a few Utrics. I'd never tried before and had been told by various growers that it can be very difficult to fertilize the flowers. Anyway, several of my U. dichotoma forms, U...

    .Cheap webspace?

    Can anyone out there recommend a cheap webhost that will allow me to store a heap (hundreds) of photos. I have hundreds of shots that I'd like to post on the forum but have no space left on my site to upload them. I won't be able to add any more photos until some space is found. Thanks, Sean.

    Which Utric is this?

    Hi everyone, I have just had a Utric species flower for the first time for me. Problem is that the flower does not match the species. I obtained a plug from a friend in the middle of last year and it has since spread throughout its pot. The plug was given to me as U. prehensilis but the...

    Drosera slackii x capensis

    Hi everyone, Just thought I'd let you guys have a look at one of my South African Drosera hybrids. This plant is a cross between Drosera slackii and capensis. I did not produce the hybrid myself but think it is a very attractive plant. The photo does not do the plant justice but gives you a...

    Drosera arcturi- Lake Mountain, Australia.

    Hi everyone, It's been a while since I've been on any fieldtrips so I decided to check out a spot called Lake Mountain today. I travelled there with George (Binataboy) and a couple of other friends to locate a population of Drosera arcturi which is known from this area. Lake Mountain is a...

    Utricularia dichotoma in the wild

    Hi everyone, I've often found that some of the most interesting CP finds I have made have occurred in situations when I was not looking for or expecting them. I happened across another interesting find a few days ago which was totally unexpected. I was travelling to my wifes parents house at...

    Drosera silvicola

    G'Day everyone, My Drosera silvicola pygmy Drosera decided to flower for me today so I thought I'd post a few photos. I believe that D. silvicola has been lumped with Drosera barbigera as D. barbigera ssp. silvicola but for the moment I still refer to mine as just D. silvicola. First a single...

    Utricularia beaugleholei photos

    Hi everyone, After much searching I finally managed to locate one of my favourite Utricularia species growing in the wild. I hadn't seen the plant for over 8 years but thought I'd make an extra effort to find it this Spring. In the end I found it growing in a wetland area which was only 5...

Here are a few shots from my collection...

    Drosera cistiflora seedlings

    Hi guys, I have some D. cistiflora seedlings that have germinated late for me and are very small at the moment. Here in Australia the hot weather is about to hit and I'm worried about what to do with the seedlings. If I keep them moist is it possible to grow them throughout summer without a...

    Fieldtrip Photos 1

    Hi everyone, I went on yet another fieldtrip over the weekend in the hope of finding some nice forms of U. dichotoma and D. binata. I didn't have any luck with the binata but had very good success with the dichotoma. The place I visited was the Grampians National Park (supposedly has...
