    I bought a butterwort at Wal-Mart recently (have to get them when they are fresh) for a few dollars labeled as a "yellow butterwort". Which species is this? I can't seem to find anything specific in my books. It is growing quite nicely with a baby and a D. capensis as extras.
    Thanks!

    Normally, P. primulifora is what is commercially available, but isn't there one called P. lutea? I would scarf it up!

    You'd be lucky if its P. lutea but flowering would tell you for sure. A lutea will have yellow flowers. I'd say its most likely P. primuliflora. Do you see any little baby plantlets growing off the ends of the leaves? If so, its definitely a prim.

    And if it has a light purple flower, it is likely to be P. primuliflora.
