Re: whoopie for me.....
These are pygmy Drosera, so they are small in nature. I've a few flowering right now, from gammea in ~7weeks. Problem with my place is strong winds. My D. Spatulata, Capirallis LF and Intermedia flowers are swings so badly that flowers are damage before even fully open. With pygmy Drosera, the flower is even thinner. So for me I wont attempt pollination. I keep telling myself to check on gammea formation, but it has been below my priority list from day to day. Good luck to you on trying out.:1thumbup:


The pygmy Drosera are almost all found only in Western Australia, a land of Mediterranean climate. During the moist and cool winters, these plants flower and grow in glandular spendor. Yet even in full growth they earn their nickname of "pygmy" sundews because they are so tiny! Their leaves are often nearly microscopic in structure. Yet, while built on a tiny scale, they are delightful to behold, like tiny jewels. I like 'em!

Pygmy Drosera flower freely, and their flowers are usually wonderful. Often they are as big as the rest of the plant and are painted in brilliant or metallic shades of white, pink, yellow, orange, and red. Very nice. Yes, I must admit that a few of the species have nasty little white flowers, but these uglies are in the minority.

Unfortunately, pygmy Drosera flowers rarely produce seed, and the seeds that do develop are extremely difficult to germinate.
