    The second plant is almost certainlyDrosera aliciae as William has inferred. Definitely a South African species and definitely not a form of D. natalensis or dielsiana.

    Drosera aliciae is a little shy on flowering - you must have the touch! I am still not discounting D. natalensis: I have grown plants that were almost exactly like D. aliciae in the shape (although not in number) of the lamina (Vic Brown grows it) but the details of the peduncle were quite different - buds more oval in shape, etc. The likely winner is D. aliciae, D. natalensis is not making the rounds much in our area.

    The first pic is the one that looks similar to D. dielsiana or spatulata, to my untrained eye. The second pic looks a lot like my D. aliciae:

    lol Jim, i has a great amount of respect for Tamlins and Seans ideas, mostly the comment was just questioning a comment Tamlin made in another thread about aliciea about it being an uncommon flowering dew(im thinking he was refering as a comparison to capensis and spatulata that it doesnt flower much) but as you can see by the pic it has 3 flower stalks(all new) and i know ive cut stalks off on a regular basis. i dont expect a positive ID until i provide better photos of the requested areas and even than it might just be a probabaly thing

    For me, Drosera aliciae only flowers in spring and summer. Mine are grown outdoors in a greenhouse where conditions are very close to those they would experience in nature. I would think that if they were grown inside with additional lighting (is this the case?) or in a more stable environment the rate of flowering would differ and potentially increase in frequency.

    It wasn't so for me, I grew them both in and outdoors. Of course, I may just have had a shy flowering variety. I mean, they DO flower, just not as frequently as Drosera spatulata or D. dielsiana. D. coccicaulis is another that only flowers once per season in my conditions.

    yep grown inside under lights. though they do experience temperature swings, especially this time of year when we dont run heat or AC much and leave the windows open
