This year, I've managed to collect seed for the following species:

Drosera x beleziana 'EM Pond' - $3
Drosera capillaris 'Jacksonville, FL' (These packets may contain D. brevifolia and/or D. intermedia) - $3
Drosera glanduligera - $3
Drosera intermedia 'EM Pond' - $2.50
Drosera rotundifolia 'EM Pond' - $3

Shipping in a regular envelope with padding is $0.75.

I'm particularly interested to see the outcomes of the D. x beleziana seed. This hybrid sprang up in a pot of D. rotundifolia and D. intermedia which I started from seed. Interestingly, the hybrid appears fertile, as it flowered for the first time this year and saw a good seed set.

I'll take a capensis packet. What would you recommend, D. Intermedia or D. Glandilugera?

I may have beat you to the capensis Katya, when this plant matures I'll let you know.

D. Glandilugera might be hard to maintain long term, but you should give it a try.

Ah it was you. :lol: I thought that for sure I got to it first, definitely keep me updated!

@Natchgreyes, is it the flower that is pink, or is it the entire plant?

@Katya, we think it's the pink form which resulted in cross of an alba X all red capensis, which made a large vigorous plant that was pink.

I'll be comparing its growth to typical, red narrow leaf, alba, broad leaf, some giant form, and wide leaf all started from seeds.

I'm still looking for "all red", blainskloof, and other giant forms.

Yep, what David said. I'll grab a shot of all the capensis types that I grow in the morning and share. Since it's winter and they're under lights, they're not as nicely colored as during the summer, but you can still see blushes of color.

Bains kloof is not red and indeed a location of growth.
They prefer cooler temps that that of the typical varieties other than that just as easy to grow

Thanks for the info, I really had no idea on this one, just wanted to try growing them when I saw pictures in growsundews website. I'm not saying it is red but sometimes colors changes in different enviroment due to temperature or too much artifical light.

Blain's Kloor are not red, however they are pretty interesting.

Maybe Drosera capillaris 'Long Arm'?
