    Try again...S. rosea 'luteola' for sundews plants

    These are from the antho-free form of S. rosea......a bit difficult to grow and not common. The parent was selfed, the seeds are plump and fresh harvested, about 25 seed. Nobody has S. psit antho-free seed for trade so I will try again. I am looking for the true, VERY red form of D...

I have about 30 divisions (clones) of this plant and every plant produces a scape that splits into a double. This is the only VFT clone that I have that does...

    I have a Sarracenia x wrigleyana hybrid with a bloom that has finished opening. I wanted to know if this plant can be self pollinated or do I need pollen from another plant to pollinate it? I have noticed that pollen is already being shed on this bloom so if it can be selfed I need to l know...

    Utric hybridization attempt

    Hi guys, I was mucking around in the greenhouse a couple of days ago and thought I'd have a go at pollinating a few Utrics. I'd never tried before and had been told by various growers that it can be very difficult to fertilize the flowers. Anyway, several of my U. dichotoma forms, U...
