Drosera binata 'T Form'

Recommended Posts

I've grown a simple T form in my binatas - one of the original plants I first got back in the late 1980s!!  Almost certainly from Marstons.  I'll take a photo tomorrow.  Doesn't seed widely in the greenhouse like some of the others do!

A lot less of a 'mess' than the branched:

I had the T form from the Mid 70's upto 2010, it never branched more than once to my knowledge.  Lost it in the hard freeze of 2010, been hoping to get the same clone back ever since (which i may have now).

Some damage here from a late cold spell we had last month..

Group shot:

The last two clones are still small as I don't have them that long.

Beside these clones I also have some clones from the regions Sean mentioned which form also leaves with 4 points. Some of these are as compact as the T-form clones.

I have this form but it's started forking more than the once.

When i first saw that picture, my immediate reaction was that it was a dichotoma. Possibly a backcross somewhere in it's history?

I love the look of the grampians clone 1. Thanks for posting these, good to see some of the variations.

I'll have to ask for my money back :laugh: To be fair it's only called a binata not a T-form. I'll wait to see if my forks again as it matures.

This clone comes from Sean Spence. Maybe good to correct my previous post here: he still sends plant material to the EU, we had contact after my post.

I remember getting mine from Matt.  He told me it's a short olive green form which I've not seen anywhere else so I snapped it up.  I went to him looking for the one I had years ago.

Hi All,

Yes, I have the two forms on the website. The larger of the two was from Marstons in the early eighties, and the narrower, more gracile form was from Kew at around the same time. They both grow well and only rarely does the larger form fork twice, well under one percent of the leaves.

Regards

Nigel H-C
