Thanks Mark ! D.magna only resembles plants like D.macrophylla and D.monantha at this stage. Once fully opened, the leaves of D.magna are shorter, wider and much more rounded. It's undeniably my favorite species in the squamosa complex ...... and as a bonus, it produces daughter tubers much more readily than other closely related plants.
Yes, D.menziesii is quite flamboyant. A flowering mini forest of them can be one of the nicest CP displays to be found. I have no clue what that other D.basifolia tuber decided to do this year. I'm just hoping that every one of those plantlets ends up producing a tuber of it's own this summer.
Hi Cthulhu - They look pretty darn happy! I wouldn't mind being a tuberous dew that found its way into your collection; seems like a pretty cushy life. Many of your staked species look like they are further along than mine. Though I had an oddly slow start the to season here. It was so warm out late, I could get the grow room cool enough to get them chugging along. They've picked up now though, but I'm hoping for a slow spring to give them a full season.
Thanks for the compliment. This has been a weird year for my plants for sure. Since my tuberous and South African winter growing stuff is in the basement up against a wall, they weren't affected too badly but I'm having a terrible year for pygmy Drosera. They're only just now starting to produce gemmae when on normal years, I have plenty by October.
