    Right now there is only one scientifically recognized species in the "complex", that is Drosera binata. Pretty simple really. Any variation we horticulturists notice can be taken care of by getting busy and registering them as cultivars, some already have. Meantime, please do not write the invalid names as if they were valid, please.

    To include extra descriptive terms in lieu of registered cultivar names, please use parentheses, double quotes, brackets, commas, semicolon, etc. Just, please do not write them in a format that implies that they are valid, until and unless they are.

    For example: To avoid confusion and bogus names, D. binata dichotoma "small form" could be written; Drosera binata (dichotoma) "small form". [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    Cultivars already registered and derived from Drosera binata include: Drosera 'Giant' and Drosera 'Marston Dragon'. Sounds like we could get busy and register a few more from this species.

    That's also where the confusion lies. I've seen them be written even as separate species [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    so... there's only one species and only one subspecies or just one species and many subspecies? are they ALL just varieties?

    See this is why I hate posting about binata complex even though I love it. Alway someone tells me I used the wrong description even though several books call it several different things.

    There is only one species of Drosera binata, it is called Drosera binata. There are two selections from Drosera binata which are registered as cultivars. All variation should currently be recognized by registering them as cultivars. The taxonomists can sort their part out whenever they get around to it, if they ever do.

    Well, I made six root cuttings last night.

    If successful, I should have plenty to trade.
