Really great plants and picture !!!!!

It's the first time i see a D.paucifloa so hairy (perhaps it's normal, i have not d.pauciflora).

You seem to cultivate D.Cistiflora in good conditions (better than mine) i never have flowers with my plants.

Crazily clear photos, I assume these are "stacked" from multiple images?  The D. pauciflora flowers are just amazing looking, its like having super human vision!

Hi,

yes, they are stacked but the original images, even the one's I posted in the gallery, from which I made the links to this post, were better. Seems that they were shrinked or processed in a way during the upload. I uploaded files of about 0,6 to 0,9 mb.

Sometimes it is a little bit difficult with the stacking of flowers. Here I have a small video which is made from the stacked images for the D. coccipetala flower picture above. During I was taking the shots the flower was closing.

Wow, amazing pictures of very cool plants not presented often enough. Thank you for sharing your results, there are truly astonishing.

 

Like Dave, I'm particularly fond of the picture of the flower of D. pauciflora. Quite an impressive (group of) shot(s) !

Hi Lutz

Great pictures, one more time !!, thaks for sharing them.

After d.cistiflora and d.pauciflora now d.coccicaulis it's seem you master the culture of these south African drosera.

Hi,

a white D. coccipetala ... WOW. I never knew that there are white ones but if I see for instance the D. cistifloras it is not very astonishing. I think one of the things which make SA drosera special are their extraordinary flowers. In comparsion to the plant they are usually very big, very beautiful and sometime surprising. The D. cistiflora, from which I posted pictures, flowered for the first time and I did not knew if it wouldt be white, pink or whatever.

 

For the wintergrowing SA drosera it seems for me a little bit late to come out. My last one, a D. afra, came out about three weeks ago and the very most are growing like on the pictures above. I start to water them carefully in fall. If they did not want to come out let's say around christmas, I usually can not bear it and take a look onto the roots. If they are still OK I water them for one time so that the substrate is totally wet and then I water them normal.
As far as I remember I did not lose something by doing this. If I loose wintergrowing drosera it is usually because the roots dry out in summer but the propagation rate is higher then the drying out rate ;-).

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

great pictures, thanks for sharing them with us! For me, South African Drosera are amongst the nicest Drosera of all. Those flowers are in many cases just breathtaking :)

 

Lutz, the white flowered plants in Kamils pictures are most likely D. pauciflora and not D. coccipetala.

Hi Lutz

I want to qhow you the only flower of south african drosera that i have never had (except D.trinaervia).

I came from a big D.cistiflora not far from 50 cm tall.

The flower was very big and beautifull as you can see.

This year i lost a big part of my south african drosera, like you said in the post i think they dry too much.

So i'll be surprise to have new flowers this year.

Hi,

breathtaking, as Christian said and 50 cm! If my plants one day reach such a height I will have serious problems with my terrariums.

I wanted to follow the scheme to post from one species pictures from the beginning to the end but the next one, a D. cistiflora Nieuwoudtville did not cooperate. It had two flowers and both of them did not open. Maybe it opened during the daytime for a short time and closed in the afternoon before I came from work but that wouldt be not very typical. So I will post the pictures without a flower picture plus some other south africans.

 

First two pictures of D. alba. First it does not look so typical but later ...
