    Haha your plants are awesome! Why do you always make it sounds like they're all on death's door?

    For some reason, when I saw your 'adelae' (and mind you I barely know anything about dews - maybe NaN will chime in) all I could think was ascendens I'm perfectly sure I'm wrong though

    I love the peas sign.

    The "adelae" reminds me of pics I've seen of villosa, or one of the more common related species. It could be ascendends, as thez said, but that species I've always seen as having flatter leaves.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    definitely not adelae. Looks more like villosa, or some sort of ascendens maybe.
    Love that utric tank. and LOVE your D. hartmeyerorum.

    Gorgeous plants, Jim!

    To your adelae dubiosity, I wouldn't hazard a guess as to an ID based on that one picture, but -

    Here's a drosera adelae (photo from Feb 2010) in the process of forming its first adult leaves. It may give you an idea about your plant.

    It appears to have the shaggy hairs on the petioles and undersides of the lamina that D. villosa gets its name from. Can't really tell from the photo.
    The petioles appear too short to be D. villosa which should be 1.5-3.5x the length of the lamina so D. ascendens would seem more likely. This is based on St. Hilaire's diagnoses from 1824. The South America Drosera are under going taxonomic revision so it might be better to wait until the monographs are published. Even then these need to be peer reviewed and accepted by the ICBN.

    Of course it may not be South American at all. If the shaggy hairs are not there than it is something else.

    Do you have the earlier photograph? Photos from different angles would help also.
