There are seedlings in the batch with noticeably thicker and shorter petioles that look like the "coccicaulis" venusta, I suppose those are probably the true venusta (unless I didn't get germination from that species at all). I guess I'll wait until the seedlings mature a bit to make a definitive call on ID.
    Oddly enough the two will likely produce fertile hybrids, but nidiformis has far thinner petioles than just about everything else in its group, which includes venusta, aliciae, natalensis, dielsiana etc...which reminds me my next note: nearly all "dielsiana" in cultivation are actually natalensis, but the two are nearly indistinguishable. The main difference is the former having rounded seeds, the latter having seeds with tapered tips....

    Hcarlton - I highly doubt my dielsiana are natalensis as I received them marked as "true dielsiana, not natalensis", from the ICPS seed bank.

    I guess we'll find out once that flower stalk is done developing, then!

    Radagast, once upon a time so did I. And the seed bank is still vulnerable to mislabels, but if they turn out to be the true dielsiana I'm interested in obtaining material at some point to compare the two myself.

    Well it looks like I won't be getting any seeds from that plant anytime soon, the flower buds all decided to break off when I moved the pot...anyone else have experience with the pedicels being exceptionally weak?

    I really like the Drosera hartmeyerorum shot. So much dewy goodness.
