    This locality from Florida is known for producing a couple of distinctive forms of D. capillaris. This form is the flat rosetted version, growing to around 2 inches across on average with paddle shaped leaves bearing thin glabrous petioles and, when fully mature, very broad, triangular to near-rounded lamina (similar to D. burkeana). Coloration is attractive, petioles usually staying green but can blush red, and the lamina typically a bright crimson to nearly poppy red. Short, wiry stalks are produced most often in summer that bear several small, delicate light pink self-pollinating flowers. This species is great as a singular display plant, or developing carpeting colonies. Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment for germination, and tolerates a wide range of conditions but will do best in very warm, wet, strong light environments. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail. US shipping only.

    A seed-grown cross just starting to reach safe shipping size, and with a lot of potential in the dark and tubby arena. Adult plants are of course unknown so far (and don't expect them to look like "Rebecca Soper," which is a ramispina and not gracillima cross), but plants already show potential to have rich red or maroon-tinted green leaves and tubby, moderately to heavily patterned deep red to purple pitchers. If truly a gracillima hybrid uppers will likely be fairly slender and heavily patterned; if the male parent turns out to be alba, uppers may be very pale reddish in color. Plants are currently around 1" in diameter, each seed-grown and unique. Plants are shipped bare-root wrapped in a moist paper towel, via USPS Priority mail; I typically ship Monday-Wednesday to avoid weekend hold-overs. US shipping only. Many plants are grown in high humidity conditions and may require acclimation, unless otherwise noted. If you are expecting weather that may be detrimental to the plants if shipped, please message me upon making your order! Shipping cost includes heat pack for winter conditions. If there are issues with the plants upon arrival, please contact me within 48 hours of receipt.
