Yes, from only a couple months ago too. Same with the D. hookeri orange/red (not pictured) and one of my three hookeri typical. The peltata complex is ridiculously easy to grow, they don't even need stratification of any real sort. The stolonifera and ramellosa, on the other hand.....
More pics D. indica "Pink Scented flower" These next three have given me great trouble. All look very similar but there are supposed to be at least 2 species represented here. Anyone to help? D. tokaiensis D. capillaris "Costa Rica" (these seeds came from the ICPS, and have lighter pink flowers, if even barely, than the other 2) And the supposed D. "capillaris Long Arm," which are certainly not the long arm variety, but what are they exactly? D. tomentosa D. affinis and its flower Let me know what you think! And any help with those "capillaris/tokaiensis" plants are appreciated, especially considering the hybrids I've done. All three are somewhat different, so I can at least label different forms, but still....
More pics to share: D. hookeri refuses to climb, instead they're producing multiple growth points: The D. stolonifera are climbing perfectly however And, though the seeds were sown only a couple months ago, D. auriculata Howden, Tasmania are climbing already! D. trinervia colony (also have a couple mystery SA dews here) D. platystigma "A" turning orange D. roseana colony And, waking up (and producing flower stalks for cool hybrids) are my new D. tracyi. I used to call them filiformis tracyi, but now, after seeing growth myself, I can see why they were separated.
Just curious, hcarlton, have you ever managed to keep Drosera indica alive for more than a year? I'd like to grow it but I'd rather grow a plant that stays alive more than a year. And is it difficult to obtain seed and germinate them from the plants? Nice plants as usual, by the way.
You assume I've reproduced them. this is the first time I've gotten plants from the seeds I received to get over 2 inches tall. They need very high light and only moist soil. Otherwise, from what I've heard and seen from other people, they're very fast growing and, because they're annuals, easy to gain seeds from. They're certainly easy enough to germinate.... besides, who knows? They may be like D. burmannii and relatives, hard to keep alive past a year, but maybe if fed well, can persist for multiple. Only time will tell.
Got something interesting along that line for the next set of pictures: one of the leaves on the tracyi was actually a double leaf, and it has split apart at the tips, so one leaf now has two unfurling tips.
More pics! D. auriculata Howden climbing fast D. trinervia D. tracyi and its double leaf: stupid me, however, as I placed the pot right under the lights, and the tips burnt off, so this leaf will stop at about 8 inches tall D. natalensis flower One of only 3 flowers I've ever seen open on the D. capillaris FL Long Arm x intermedia D. tomentosa: it's not getting any bigger, so fingers crossed it might flower soon D. burmannii Humpty Doo D. adelae is a weird one for me; at any one time, the whole pot may grow well, or one side of the pot looks dead and the other is fine, or vice versa. I may need to thin out the D. prolifera soon
