What I hope to get this year
I have a collection permit for Drosera in the Cape of South Africa and I am hoping to get:
-Various capensis clones
-Drosera cistiflora (red, white, pink, possibly yellow)
-Drosera rubrifolia (if I can get a private location to collect it)
-Drosera ericgreenii (same as above)
-Drosera 'trinervia' sp "orange" (Orange flower form)
-Drosera trinervia "giant" (9cm across, not in cultivation at all afaik)
I should be able to find seeds of most of the above, will have to make a proper setup to grow them though! Some very different growing habits here. I hope to at least start my more water loving species in trays outside as I expand! The rest to the fridge for the time being. It's exciting to get back into things. I will be posting many photos as the year goes on
