  1. Wow. The 17 year old post that keeps on giving...
  2. Normal shaped tubers for this species.
  3. Norfolk Island pine - Araucaria heterophylla
  4. I'm pretty confident that this is a nice form of D. natalensis. The appearance of D. dielsiana is quite different to this plant.
  5. All good Jaco. The question was aimed at the original poster.
  6. Sure that's not a form of D. natalensis? I have some plants grown from seed labelled as D. madagascariensis from Mpumalanga that look very much like this plant.
  7. You keep it dry. Bone dry. For more control I'd place it in a ziplock bag in a cool place indoors and let it do what it wants. When it begins to grow repot and water. If you're lucky it'll hold back until next autumn.
  8. There are others. D. gracilis, gigantea and erythrogyne are some of those.
  9. All of the forms originating from southern Australia, ie- Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and WA fork only once. I'm surprised they appear to be so uncommon in cultivation in your part of the world.
  10. You've still got the touch.
  11. Australia has a list of permitted species and if on that list the seed simply needs to be clean and labelled to allow importation.
  12. I think that you'll find that the import requirements for other countries vary from those of the US. The US is the only country with the small seed lots permit.
  13. Not what I expected. Lovely little plant.
  14. We've got one grower in northern Australia and another in Switzerland, I'm not surprised that each experiences differences in the plants behaviour.
  15. It's the anthocyanin free form of Drosera venusta that I passed seed around from many years ago.
  16. I won't dispute that. I've grown a number of forms and clones over the years and have only ever managed to produce seed when I have manually crossed different clones. I guess there must be some other clones that will occasionally produce a small amount of seed without any help.
  17. Two different clones are required to produce seed.
