Hi all,

I came across D. californica 'Lois Glas' in several growlists. Can anyone tell me what is special about this plant? Is Lois Glas a named location where this plant comes from, or does the name say something else? A picture would be great!

Cheers,

Ries

Ah, thanks for that I've often wondered. I have a S. minor var okefenokeensis Lois Glas clone from Mike King (M8). I always thought it was a place :tu:

I've had the Darlingtonia Lois Glass myself, it came from Mike.

Mike told me when I got it it was a form that wouln't grow really large like a normal Darlingtonia.

They get around 30/40 cm high, but not any higher.

Good luck!
