Subject: Drosera dichrosepala from Mt Manypeaks

Last winter I unintentionally started colonies of D dichrosepala and
D dichrosepala 'robust form, Mt Manypeaks' at the same time, in the
same mix, and physically standing next to each other. At the
weekend I realised what I'd done - I can make a horticultural
comparison. The Mt Manypeaks plants are about 30% taller, have leaf
pads about double the area and have much redder glands, giving a
reddish appearance overall whereas the normal form is quite
greenish. Unfortunately I missed them flowering - the petals are
not evident on the closed-up flowers of the normal form but protrude
about twice the length of the sepals on the Mt Manypeaks form, but
this may be due to flowering at different times.
