    Cultivar Registration:

    "Cultivars can be propagated vegetatively or by seed; as long as the propagation method produces new plants with the same characters mentioned in the cultivar description, the new plants can also be given the same cultivar name"

    Aww <3, the cute things are already ready to catch microscopic bugs. How cute.

    Frankly, I see nothing special about D. rotundifolia, or any Sundew, actually, the only one I want right now is Drosera regia.

    Photos I took today. One of the big plants on the lower left quadrant is munching a fungus gnat. Shots are a little fuzzy (digital zoom). Guess I'll break out my film camera.

    D. rotundifolia ‘Charles Darwin’ Revival

    I recently started a new generation of my cultivar Drosera rotundifolia ‘Charles Darwin’ from seed. One seedling grew incredibly fast and began flowering like a true tropical grower as soon as it reached mature size; only 78 days after sowing the seed. I’m taking leaf cuttings of this one super grower to propagate for others. Yes, it changes if grown from seed. But oh well, the plant's namesake was all about change...

    Good to see this hasn't fallen out of cultivation. It's been a while since I've seen anyone mention it at all.

    It's a great idea. I grow D. rotundifolia but right now they are just coming out of their hibernacula and I've been without them for months. I do have 'Ivan's Paddle' to ease my separation anxieties, tho'.
