A Flower on my Paradoxa ?


Recommended Posts


Hello Folks, could this be a flower forming on my D.Paradoxa ? Im quite chuffed when i can get the conditions right so my Drosera are this happy ! :dancing:

that's how mine looked too, a fuzzy thing, that eventually unravels and produces light-pink flowers. :)

Don't want to burst your enthusiastic bubble, but petiolaris group flowers are nothing to exciting. They only open for a few hours each day, and are pretty plain.

Oh well, still exciting i guess...

Hello Aidan, would you say that after i appreciate this flower, in the future i should chop most of them off because otherwise il be overun with Paradoxa in all my pots ? :D I hear stories about Utrics invasion tactics.

Petiolaris complex plants are generally self-sterile and so the plant won't set seed.

Unless I do want seed, I prefer the plant to put its effort into growth rather than flowering. The Carniflora clone can easily grow eight or ten flower spikes at any one time.

Unless it was my imagination, a colony of D. paradoxas, started from seeds, seemed to have perpetuated themselves from the roots. I would give them away and their number didn't diminish.
