    D. nitidula spp. allantostigma?

    Is this a dormant D. nitidula spp. allantostigma?



    I didn't think D. nitidula went dormant. Is that correct?
    Thanks!!!

    Not enough leaf structure is available to help ID the species. It looks like a Drosera breaking dormancy.

    If it is Drosera nitudula ssp allantostigma this was elevated to species status earlier this year so you can refer to it as Drosera allantostigma

    This species should go dormant in the wild during the summer months (no growth above ground Jan, Feb and Mar below the equator). If you keep it wet year round it usually will not go dormant:

    The one with green #1. That is a cephalotus folicaris ( spelling?). They were at first tiny little pink ones . I had them disappear overnight and then slowly disappeared the next few days .argghhh
