    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.

    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

    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
