D. spec. "hairy ascendens"

Recommended Posts

Hello,

In the moment a few of my D. spec. "hairy ascendens" ´Cristália, Minas Gerais, Brazil´ are in flower for the first time.

This untill now undescribed species is a relatively easy grower, similar to D. ascendens, but the plants are smaller in diameter, the flower scapes are much shorter and very hairy and the flowers are really small in comparison to D. ascendens, they are only about 1,2cm.

And here we go.

it was really difficult to take some better pictures of the flowers because of their small size.

Wow, that's a busy looking pot ! Could this be known as a "hairy ass" for short ? :laugh1: (sorry, i couldn't resist)

And i think for close up shots look fine as they are !

If it produces even half the amount of seeds as it does in the wild, truly EVERYBODY will have this plant soon! :)

Congrats once again Dani!

Many thanks again.

About the seed capsules, till now they are not ripe but they are much smaller than the seed capsules of D. ascendens.

How does the seed look like, similar to D. ascendens or not so elongated?

Best regards,

Dani

Consider the Brazilian Drosera very beautiful, but most are difficult to grow requiring special care to follow healthy for many years. Your plants are wonderful Daniel, thank you for sharing their pictures with us.

Best regards,

Thanks Rodrigo.

There are a few more difficult species but this one is an easy grower, like for example D. ascendens, D. t. var. tomentosa, D. t. var.glabrata, spec. "Bahia".

Best regards,

Dani

I'm glad to see these doing so well in europe!.

As Fernando said, in the wild they produce an ridiculous amount of seed. I don't know how these plants are not so much more widespread around Grão Mogol region .

Congrats (again..) Dani

Many thanks again.

Somehow i have not noticed your replies, probably because i´m in Bulgaria at the moment and i do not think a lot about my plants, lol.

In a few days i will be back in Germany so i will see if they indeed produce such a big number of seed. If it´s the case it´s really a wonder why this very nice species is not so widespread in nature.

Best regards,

Dani
