The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Western Australia in 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

Round leaves:
Growing along with the Drosera ramellosa were these sporadic climbing plants. It took a bit of poking around to figure out what they were, and I believe that Phill thought they were Drosera stricticaulis. However, I concluded they were Drosera subhirtella because of range issues. However, on my return to the USA and posting this trip report, Sean Spence convinced that Phill was right all along.

This may seem strange to say, but I really like the bell-shaped leaves. Also, the way that the leaves are peltate (i.e., the petioles attach to the center of the leaves) appeals to my sense of aesthetics.
