I read, and I own his book (which is not exactly new at this point and some of the info is either outdated or has been debated extensively already). I agree with Rice (who if we disagree that tracyi wasn't published earlier, covered the issue rather thoroughly here: https://cpn.carnivorousplants.org/articles/CPNv40n1p4_16.pdf), and everyone else who sees the distinct differences that are beyond enough to separate the two.

It has white flowers and came from Meadowview, otherwise no. Seems to be the same clone that hitchhiked from a certain major West Coast place, since that one and this one have been blooming all summer but were only pollinated probably by D. multifida extrema.

I don't have anything (labeled at least) as Beerwah, but the plant has long since been killed by frost so neither here nor there at this point. They'll probably show up again next year somewhere though.

Down to 4 citrina, hopefully they'll all make gemmae and I can restore the colony

The green pygmaea are an army on the other hand
D. pygmaea "green" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Finally got the adelae page up in the Database on my site, now if only I still had that photo of the flowers I had a decade ago to add to it...
D. adelae by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Plenty of the pygmies have red leaves, but nothing like what 'Dork's Pink' has
D. 'Dork's Pink' by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And I think half a year from getting the gemmae to these making their own is a record for me

D. platystigma "dark orange" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. helodes "red" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. omissa by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. omissa blooms constantly here, stalk after stalk after stalk; with only a handful of plants right now I can only imagine what it's going to look like after I get all the new gemmae off of them established into a proper colony.

prolifera turns quit red under periods of direct sun
D. prolifera by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And apparently blooms profusely

Finally got one of the tubers to wake up, wish the other had as well...

Nice. Your D. prolifera looks very healthy. That is one I have trouble with. Any thoughts of what might make it different from other subtropical sundews? I grow it next to adelae and schizandra in the same soil and it sulks.

It's in the same mix basically as adelae, and sits right next to my schizandra pot. I don't see any real differences other than from all other tropical sundews (they're not subtropical) in that they all like it cool and slightly on the shadier side where possible.

This one never wants to finish its flowers inside...need to propagate a few and stick one outdoors, I usually can manage to make it bloom there
D. filiformis "Lakehurst, NJ" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And some tiny little things from Mr. Snyder that finally decided to show themselves a few months ago...and the biggest one just reaching over an inch across now.
D. spatulata "Denniston Plateau, NZ" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. serpens "pink flower" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. omissa by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also, I've finally taken the dive...4 species so far, 3 of them already here and this one definitely happy
D. fulva "East of Girraween Lagoon, NT Au" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
This one, not quite settled in yet I don't think, but it's not collapsing either
D. aff. lanata "Flying Fox Creek" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Repopulation of my citrina is going slow, but the 4 established plants are blooming as they do every year for me
D. citrina by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And this pic is way outdated now...as the plant is now an inch across and rapidly approaching maturity (it likes the highland tent I moved it to once I spotted it growing) and there's a 2nd too!
D. glanduligera by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also waiting on hopefully another shot at flowers again from these...they grow well enough
D. linearis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Rearranging the location of the tuberous sundews as well in hopes of encouraging more flowers/seeds and maybe survival over summer of them all
D. gunniana "Greenvale, Victoria S. Au" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. gunniana "Greenvale, Victoria S. Au" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. menziesii by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also moving more capes downstairs to boost growth
D. capensis "red, Van Rhynsdorp" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And missing the flowers that these are throwing up all over the place. For whatever reason, at the same time the green form never gets anywhere near as large nor does it ever bloom for me...
D. pygmaea "Mt. Lofty S. Australia" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

Also finally snagged the real deal. And they're growing well.

As I posted the glanduligera in the POTM contest, we'll start here with the weird menziesii that always makes really short blooms...
D. menziesii by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. serpens "Pink Flower" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. x "Southern Cross" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Took a dive in, and it paid off: this is how this guy looked when it arrived, and it hasn't skipped a beat since. Looks even better now...
D. falconeri by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Sadly think my linearis are going to refuse flowers for me this year, but they're growing nicely.
D. linearis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Getting the hookeri (gunniana? I think it's really gunniana) to bloom again. Maybe seeds this round I hope...
D. hookeri "Greenvale, Victoria Au" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
My faves, filiformis; they hate to successfully give me flowers inside though, the stalks always blacken and abort for no good reason
D. filiformis var. filiformis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Finally caught that pygmaea bloom open
D. pygmaea "Mt. Lofty, S. Au" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also have riparia prepping to bloom.
D. riparia by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. latifolia by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Been capturing some other glorious pygmy flowers recently too

This was supposed to be a replacement for my lost pulchella pink flower...they turned out to be mislabeled hybrids
D. pulchella x omissa by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
'Cause there's no way those are pure pulchella leaves
D. pulchella x omissa by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Something that was labeled right though, and the best flower I have captured yet just today:

Hoping for more seeds shortly...
D. riparia by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And finally have an actual orange-flowered pulchella!
D. pulchella "orange flower" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
More salmon than metallic, but orange nonetheless
D. pulchella "orange flower" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And arcturi lives! Barely...

D. capensis "red, Gifberg" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
prolifera finally living up to its name again
D. prolifera by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

This guy has gotten a little smaller, and greener, recently, not sure why...but still looks good
D. falconeri "Giant Red" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. fulva by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. aff. lanata "Flying Fox Creek" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Got this labeled as darwinensis...it's not
D. derbyensis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And the latest Petiolaris arrival, exciting because ironically it's the one that's not always carnivorous:
D. caduca "narrow leaf, Bachsten Creek Kimberley" BCP by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
All this lovely growth, still no flowers
D. 'Dr. Frankensnyder's Monster' by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

Pretty sure this is just a big roseana...sadly nowhere near worth the price I paid for SEWELLIAE...

D. oblanceolata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. spiralis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
D. glanduligera made a funky double-cupped leaf

And as you might gather from the listing I posted in the NASC auctions, these flower stalks have started becoming prolific!
