Here are some mediocre photos of my Drosera finlaysoniana. They're annuals grown from seed from the ICPS Seedbank. Seed was planted on March 9th in a water filled test tube. It germinated in 11 days and was potted up on March 22nd. In 3 months, they've grown to a height of almost 6 inches, still growing, and are flowering. The flower is a pale subtle Pink color. The color is more visible in the closed flower after it blooms. The plant is giving off a noticeable scent that smells like honey to me. The entire leaf is capable of movement and I have seen leaves with two full wraps around prey. They're devastating fly killers with extremely strong adhesive. Look for a seed giveaway from me in a few weeks time. Thanks are due to Ian, SDCPS, who donated the seed to the ICPS Seedbank. It was called Drosera indica "Pink Flower" before they renamed it as a separate species. This is a neat plant that should be in every Drosera lovers collection.
