Finally got straight leaves on this awesome thing

I want to see this thing fully mature. Unfortunately it seems more interested in dividing over and over...

New hybrid starting to mature

And a new favorite: I seem to have recreated a tropical linearis with this (nice because my actual linearis seedling doesn't want to do anything)

How I loathe the difficulty of photographing this one...it is simply marvelous in person, but always looks awkward on camera...

This refuses to flower still, so I don't know if it's the cross or not, but it's never gotten even close to the size of its parent aliciae, so...

Lastly, after many false germinations of just the species parent, I finally have this hybrid confirmed (using the very glandular flower stalks).

I absolutely love the D. anglica "Alakai Swamp, HI" x capensis "typical" hybrids. I continually appreciate your work Hawken. With the rate you're going at it's only a matter of time before it facilitates a sizable niche in the community. Inspired by your projects I've done my own out-crossing, and I must say it's incredibly rewarding. Thanks for being our Drosera hybrid guru!

This thread documents, electronically, an impressive body of work. Thank you for taking the time and effort to post. I especially like the D. anglica "Alakai Swamp, HI" x capensis typical. More cultivar registrations in the works?

The Alakai x cape cross seems to be a particular favorite (ironically, still haven't managed to sell the extra I have :p ), and I am really hoping it fully matures and blooms soon so I can see all aspects of it. Glad to hear my attempts have been inspiring; they're mostly me just going "what haven't I crossed yet/what would look good?" and usually something really interesting pops out (trying desperately to line up something with my capillaris 'Emerald's Envy' right now).

There may be a handful of other things I will register soon (my Alakai x oblanceolata and reverse crosses in particular are promising, debating on the Alakai x cape based on whether it finally blooms for me, but no names in mind yet), but for now I'm just enjoying the fact that they look cool and that I'm finally getting them out to other people. And, of course, if I can manage to get the last few of my 'Emerald's Envy' flowers to open at the same time as another species (and, great struggle, when I'm home), I hope I can get something good from that too.

My first homemade x beleziana (looking better now since it grew in a few more leaves than this)
D. rotundifolia x intermedia "Easton, MA" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Supposed cross, but I also apparently had a lot of fallout from a pot somewhere above this...we'll see
D. oblanceolata x spatulata 'Tamlin' by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. spatulata "white flower" x tokaiensis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Long-leaved and red, perfect pairing
D. oblanceolata x anglica "Alakai Swamp" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And flowers so pale they're almost white
D. oblanceolata x anglica "Alakai Swamp" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also, with all the fanfare over my anglica x cape: this was one of the most suspect clones (in other words, been thinking it's more likely pure anglica), but it's also the first to send up a flower stalk. And as of right now, it's pretty clearly not an anglica stalk...
D. anglica "Alakai Swamp" x capensis "typical" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Meanwhile, this is the clone that's divided several times over, still no blooms...

I have some sad news today though: it appears as if D. anglica "Alakai" is a shapeshifter; though these plants have thicker roots than other anglica, a slightly thicker leaf shape, and the flower stalk began growing with glands that I've never seen present on anglica before, even this specimen that I was so confident about opened with white flowers and appears to be setting seed....sigh, guess that means I'll be trying again...

Some other things I'm fully confident in however:

Your drosera hybrids are always so interesting. Have any of the individuals stood out to you yet?
