Can I ask You one thing? How are Your drosera linearis growing conditions? (Light, temperatures, water, winter time)... Is very difficultous To grow?

Full sun (13+ hours), normally grow them in 50:50 peat:sharp sand but this one I'm trying in peat perlite which seems fine. Grown at water level even through winter when they happily freeze solid.

Not sure if it's the same for anyone else but I have found they have a very short growing season and generally only get about 30mm in height. 

The one in the picture is sending up a flower stalk. I have had them growing for about 5 years now but haven't had them set a good amount of seed yet.

I would say with my Conditions they are easy to grow but could vary from person to person

Hope this helps :thumbsup:

One of a few nice okee seedlings i did, the cross is MKM5 X M18

These two psittacina var okefenokeensis are by far the biggest in my collection the second one has the biggest heads i have seen on any psittacina, theyre bordering on golf ball size. I would be interested to see how big other growers psittacina get?

Brought as a gulf coast giant but I suspect some hybridisation as it occasionally produces traps like a courtii

I like very much Sarracenia purpurea s.l. plants as well, because I only have a rather windy place for growing Sarracenia and, of course, S. purpurea s.l. resist really well by being so stout. Also, they look pretty nice year round. Common plants, but not boring plants!

The 'Melissa Mazur´is something I should get someday :happy: But I think the clone is not so widespread; may I ask where did you find it? Thank you!

Looking really good Dan. :)

I also have M Mazur but apparently it's unlikely we have the original and true plant. Mike King has it but I don't thinks it very wide spread.

If this is the case It would be interesting to know any defining features of the true 'Melissa mazur'?
