Easy Drosera Needs ID

by twitcher » Thu May 30, 2019 4:41 pm

My first one, about 2 years ago, from a greenhouse that did not have an ID. Super easy, hard to kill, never any seeds, clumping, always flowering but never catch any open flowers.

Clumping. This is the original single plant surrounded by its offspring. I pull off some of the outliers from time to time.

Looks exeactly like my spathulata I got from SNW. Mine is always in flower, but never produces seed.

I wonder why none of yours set seed. My spatulata from CC produces seed

Tokaiensis or spatulata is my s.w.a.g. ( scientific wild-a**ed guess )

F1 tokaiensis (aka Tolkien’s sundew)? That could explain the no seeds.

Thank you. Have had others say much the same thing. Max size is about 1.25"
