    Drosera falconeri in the wild

    Here's a couple of pictures of some D falconeri I took some years ago. I believe the place where these were located is now a housing estate.

    Drosera falconeri hybrid in the wild

    I believe this is a D falconeri hybrid. There are various intermediate specimens found in the wild.

    Drosera darwinensis?

    See photo.

    By the way, my signature line indicates where I live now. All the photos I've posted on this thread were taken near Darwin, Northern Territory.

    Awesome to see woollys in their native habitat! So sorry to hear that the falconeri site was developed. I agree that the one looks like a hybrid of D. falconeri. Thanks for posting.

    Thanks for sharing the photos and details of the environment! Beautiful! Do you know if the ground is as sandy as it looks down through the root zone or if it is just the top layer?

    It's been over 10 years since I took the photos and I'm not a soil expert. However, I extracted the following from a blurb on soil types in the Northern Territory which accords with what I do remember:

    "In the Northern Territory, soil types range from massive red and yellow earths to shallow ironstone gravels. There are considerable areas of shallow stony and sandy soils interspersed with massive red and yellow earths throughout the top end. Surface textures range from sands to clay loams.".

    The area where the photos were taken receives about 1500 mm (about 60 inches) of rain in a few month, so the soil generally drains pretty quickly.

    Here's a picture of Drosera growing in a particularly pebbly area:

    Thanks for the photo and soil description. It would be very nice to see Petiolaris sundews in their native habitat!
