Hey guys,
I was wondering if a D. Capensis 'Alba' seed will come true to type from seed? I have a flower stalk thats blooming and have been keeping it so no other sundew in the area is blooming, as to keep the air free of pollen. I was just wondering if that would help make the viable seed stay "pure" you could say. Also I recently lost my D. Capensis' All Red' and would like to know if anybody has a plant or seed of that variety that they could trade out?
Thank You,
John

Important pretty sure it will produce true seed however i think its possible it could produce a few seeds that may be regular or some other anomaly .but important no expert if your going to trade i have some giant seedlings giant capensis that is i can get seeded to if you would rather start your own.

The registered cultivar name is 'Albino' as Latin or latinized words are not acceptable for cultivar names. They could be confused as species epithets. A registered cultivar name is always denoted by single quotes ('). Only registered cultivar names should be in single quotes.

It breeds true (offspring have white flowers). See the cultivar description for more information:
