My Dreamsicle (red plants in the green pot) and D. filiformis var. filiformis (green plants in the orange pot) have really enjoyed the above-normal temperatures at my house for the past few weeks:

I need to move them far apart before the flowers open or I'll get all sorts of hybrids.

I think that I might have some hybrids already: one plant that has no red at all, and two plants that have a lot of red in them (but still go into full-bore dormancy in the fall).

I've got some of your hybrids, Mike. That all green one had me confused and I have the dormancy loving red ones.

@Panman -- Now my question is, are those hybrids:
  • var. filiformis x var. floridana
  • var filiformis x Dreamsicle
  • (var. filiformis x var. floridana) x Dreamsicle?
I honestly can't say. Whatever the parentage, they're some nice-looking sundews.
