    Due to social distancing and the closure of schools. I had lunch while working from home, looking over a few plants. Hope you enjoy them. I also noticed my Utricularia aureomaculata is about to bloom, so I'll post a picture of that when it does

    Never fear! You do not need a chemistry book to understand this film. Showing a bunch of beautiful sundew species and hybrids, we explain really briefly and clear why particular chemical ingredients of the sundews are not only interesting as cough medicine for homeopathy, but also as traits for taxonomy, in a manner as comprehensible for laypersons as possible. The featured chemical analysis (TLC) is helpful for the description of novel species and gains an additional dimension by the fact that most true species produce only one naphthoquinone or none, while hybrids show the chemistry of both parents combined. That means, if the parents produce different quinones, the hybrid shows both of them and both parents as well as the hybrid can be distinguished chemically that way.

    I was observing a colony of Drosera cunifolia on table mountain with Drosera aliciae just meters away when I found an oddball that immediately stood out to me and I am assuming is a hybrid between the two. No other species were closer that 50 meters. The plant didn’t flower this year and i don’t want to wait till next year so does anyone have in their collection Drosera cunifolia x aliciae or a picture of it please? And if anyone has heard of this hybrid in the wild also please let me know. It’s very nice seems to have the best characteristics of both species and for this time of year when both parents look small and unhappy it looked like it was in its prime bigger than both parents. Probably some hybrid vigor there:)

    Cheers all - I have got over Ben's death and ordered some more Bens, who will be treated far more harshly, outside living, plenty of flies and North-Western weather. :)

    Hi Bens Mum Unfortunately it looks like Ben has rhizome rot. lift the rhizome and snap it in half, it should be white inside, if it is brown and corky, cut that back progressively till you hit solid white, which if there is any, is likely to be at the very end by what would be the growing tips. If you find white rhizome plant it in NEW sterile media or Sphagnum and keep very wet and you may get a result. Get rid of the old media and dead rhizome in a sanitary manner. Good luck, I think you will need it. Steve

    I'll continue growing what I am now - just more! That's mainly sarracenia with a few drosera, darlingtonia and vfts.

    Hi! A little update... my plants are just waking up... p. gigantea alba has opened today its first flower of the season... p. gigantea seedgrown (that one I called “compact”) for the second time, has divided itself... it will flower later in the season... it seems to be a peculiarity of this clone, because its mother and its sister (that I gave to my friend) first flower and then divide themselves, like my p. gigantea alba.

    I asked this question to Brian Lipinski and below is how he answered: OG: Original GangsterHistory: As per item description, I obtained this as a dime sized immature plant from California Carnivores in 2007. I coined the name “OG Black” because of the seed sourced (Allen Lowrie, the “original gangster” of West Australian carnivorous plants). It is the oldest, darkest, and one of the most vigorous clones in my collection.
