Hi H2O - Beautiful! The legendary bloom of D. hamiltonii. Love it! I've never gotten it to bloom. And these days it's cultivation confounds me, despite having succeeded with it for years in the past. C'est la vie!

Honestly I don't think many people realize how amazing the flowers are on this species. The only species that beats it (IMO) is Drosera cistiflora.
I have to say my conditions are already well suited to flowering this species so I can't take as much credit as I would like. Cold, damp and dark winters followed by a gradual light increase along with warmer temps. So far it seems like a hardy little species in terms of temperatures too, ~1-2 low this year to a 45 high.
When the second one flowers I'll make a thread for this species.
