    I am 99% sure that is a natalensis as well. The way the flower is unfurling and the leaf structure is identical to my natalensis, and it does not resemble capillaris at all.

    Capillaris:


    Natalensis:

    *Apologies for hijacking the thread!!*

    I second the D. natalensis hypothesis. D. capillaris does show high amounts of variability I don't think that plant falls within it. Would it be possible for you to get a good look at the seeds under high magnification when they develop?

    D. natalensis (the tag in the picture is wrong)

    I will do my best though I don't have a camera adapter for my microscope. Shouldn't a picture of the flower be enough for a positive identification?

    The plant in question is a hitchhiker so anything is possible. I only ever added the one Drosera to that tank and it was sealed off from the rest of my collection for years. I never bothered to take photos of the flowers or the seeds since they were nothing special and I no longer have the plant in my collection (downsizing).

    The Drosera I had growing in there was always in bloom so you should not have to wait long for a flower.

    I sure found something interesting today...

    Utricularia calycifida 'Asenath Waite' by Nimbulan, on Flickr
    This is the tip of a damaged flower stalk from about a foot above the pot. I broke it off and am holding it where the damage was.

    Air plant flowers sure grow quickly, especially considering how slowly the plants themselves grow.

    Looks like my concerns on the mystery species have been covered by others, and I am quite certain I am not confusing capillaris with capensis, as I own both
    A flower probably will be enough for ID; most natalensis I've seen have somewhat elongated petals, while capillaris tends to had rounded petals; both can range through various shades of white to light pink though.

    As for the Utric: I'm not surprised the flower stalk budded vegetatively; most species I've grown readily put out new growth from any broken pieces of plant, and with how weedy calycifida can be just about anything buds rapidly in wet enough conditions. I'm curious though, how different is 'Asenath Waite' from the common purple forms? The flowers at least look nearly identical to mine, but mine are seed-grown. What color are the leaves?

    I believe 'Asenath Waite' is fairly similar to the typical appearance of U. calycifida but has pretty heavy veining on the flowers. Looking at pictures I just discovered two of mine on CPPhotofinder (the last two listed.) Here is a good representative picture of the cultivar though, taken by someone else: dscn2410.jpg Photo by bamaud | Photobucket

    Mine have the same palate mottling it would seem, but one major difference is the size of that yellow spot; much larger on the cultivar than the plants I grow.
