    unknown sundew

    I bought this in a pot of binatas and the seller said it was a rotundifolia, but I don't think so. What do you guys think? Sorry for the bad quality. Do your best.

    Well, it is orange, and small. And it's not clumped. I was thinking like slackii, or something, but I don't know. I thought that I had an aliciae, but if that is an aliciae, then my other clump isn't.

    Without a clearer photo it's impossible to make a better ID.

    D. aliciae in cultivation appears to have two major forms - one with longer narrower leaves, one with somewhat shorter broader wedge shaped leaves. Color varies from depending on amount of light the plant gets. It may not be clumped if a single plant was replanted and it hasn't seeded or divided. Mine turned a reddish orange when outdoors but the dew production was down so I moved it back to a windowsill. Now it's a green with a slight red tinge, the glands deep red and plenty of dew.

    This one is orange:

    That's it. Thanks NAN!!! My other one, that I thought was Aliciae, is Spathulata.

    It looks like a D. aliciae. Here's mine, if it helps:

    It could be D. spatulata, but the tips of the leaves are usually more rounded. It could be D. slackii or half a dozen other rosetted Drosera.

    Again a better photo would help. Details like the relative length of the petioles and tentacles, shape of the stipules etc. are lacking.

    Is it flowering?
