    D. spatulata is actually extremely common, and very often sold in garden centers. But I think that your plant is too big and the leaf shape is too different to be D. spatulata. It could possibly be D. spatulata 'Fraser Isand', but I still think that it's too big to be any form of D. spatulata.

    Not the best pictures in the world, but here are D. spatulata:


    And here is D. aliciae:


    I am very disinclined to disagree with Pyro, on a variety of levels, but your picture really does resemble more a D. aliciae than a D. spatulata.

    That is definately not D. spatulata. I would go with D. aliciae myself.

    Hey, disagree with me to your hearts content Seriously, if anyone thinks I am wrong they tell me and I will listen and if your evidence is better than mine that I will happily conced. I am not of the type that has a bent to be right all the time. I ain't no expert in Drosera especially not the SRS ones (of which I have only 1 because I can not stand the fact that they all look the same)!!

    I was just tossing out spatulata because it is one of the mass market TC plants, I was not sure aliciae was. It seems it is so I am not going to argue with those who likely know better than me.
