    The unidentified Drosera is almost definitely the hybrid Drosera dielsiana x nidiformis often called D X snyderi

    Yes, I've ordered from that same place and my plants are loaded with that same moss, often some rogue utrics, as well as pearlwort and other things. It takes a while but I manage to get the plants that are shipped down to the bare root before I plant them so I don't end up over run.

    When you have a heap of them growing as weeds in other pots you gain the ability to recognise them in an instant. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    the d. capensis in the bogs sprang up out of thin air. One of the very first 'hitchhikers' I ever found. I was so excited the day I found them! They seem quite happy.

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I'll try and post an explanation of the 'tube set-up' later today.

    Thank you so much! For further clarification, it has lovely (though extremely short-lived) purple flowers. I have a bad picture of a flower, but I hope to be lucky enough to spot another flower now that I have a new digital camera.

    At this point, I've managed to propagate it once. The new plant is VERY tiny, but seems to be growing quickly. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    ...I can see the nidiformis in that plant but I don't see the dielsiana.
    Hi Laura,

    The moss is a California native species apparently. So far, it doesn't seem to be overwhelming any of the plants, but it does need a good trim at a minimum. As people have guessed, I love to shop at CA Carnivores [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I actually purchased the moss, though I thought I killed it initially. The bog became 'infested' with u. Bisquamata until just recently when I began to remove every stolon I could find. Lovely flowers, but they just took over.

    Regarding the (previously) unidentified drosera, what are the identifying characteristics that people are seeing. I had thought it might be a d. spatulata but never could be sure.
