Drosera spatulata hybrids?

by King Drosophyllum VI » Sat Jan 19, 2019 4:56 am

I have seen a D. capensis x spatulata on the internet. Does anyone have any other hybrids?

I have a wide leaf, so I don't think it's a hybrid. I'm new to sundews. I love the color on your plant. It's gorgeous.

D. Tokaiensis is a natural hybrid of D. spatulata X rotundifolia. D. andromeda is prolifera X schizandra. D. hybrida is a naturally cross of filliformis X intermedia.
All of these are pretty common in cultivation.

From what I read I think they are asking specifically about hybrids involving spatulata, and there are plenty of those. First, you can cross pollinate all the different spatulata forms with each other. Successful hybrids between spatulata and: brevifolia, rotundifolia, linearis, anglica, oblanceolata, aliciae, tokaiensis, ultramifica, all are apparently possible. There is probably more.

Also there are a bunch of capensis varieties and spatulata varieties, by crossing any combo of them you can still get variable seedlings even though they are all "capensis x spatulata". Also hybrids are sometimes fertile and you can keep making crosses, that why tokaiensis was mentioned in the list. You can do {(spatulata x rotundifolia) x spatulata} sometimes based on fertility variations and other more complex hybrids like this.

Is a Drosera nidiformis x capensis possibe?

Also is a sarracenia able to hybrid with a darlingtonia? I thought that since they are closely related they might form hybrids.

I believe the three sisters of Queensland can only cross pollinate with eachother. D. prolifera, D. Schizandra and D. adelae.
