But perhaps these longer scapes are a method to increase the chance to be pollinated and thereby to be established.


Well, these hybrids are not selected for or else they would be the new species, the majority. ;) So the longer flower scapes must be a side effect of the hybridization, something gone goofy in the two genome metabolism.

Oh, i have totally forgotten to do a little update.
Like the reciprocal crossing this crossing also produced seed and it germinated in high quantity.

Best regards,
Dani

Thanks Rodrigo.
Sometimes the flowers of Drosera hybrids are bigger than the flowers of the "mother", like for example in D. camporupestris x spiralis.

Carlos, the seedlings are still too small, i sew them out about 8 weeks ago.
But of couse i will show some pictures when the plants are a little bit bigger. When you visited me i have totally forgotten to give you some seed of this crossing.

Best regards,
Dani

Hey guys,

For anybody revisiting this topic, the species previously reffered to as "D.ascendens" by all of us is now called D.latifolia, check the link below:
