    spatulata and a ?????

    I'm thinking the one on the left is a D. spatulata.
    They came from differant growers and both were labled D. spatulata.
    Is the one on the right a D. spatulata also?

    They really both do look like spatulata. The leaf part gradually thickens toward the trap and the trap is definitely spatula-shaped. Another possibility D. dielsiana.

    Rosetted sundews all confuse the devil out of me......

    Spatulata, Dielsiana, Slackii, Tokaiensis etc. I have a sneaking suspicion that they're all the same plant with separate growing variations.

    I dunno, they all look the same to me.

    Its definitely possible that they are both D. Spathulata, as Spathulata is such a widely distributed/variable species. (E.G the Fraser Island form is much more reddish then the typical form) The shape seems right :0 *raises eyebrow*

    Remember Tamlin's rule of thumb for D. spatulata: "If it looks like spatulata it is spatulata"

    Yep. I agree with that whole-heartedly.

    That's the best thing I've heard this year in fact..........

    lol^ I love that...Anyway they both look spatulata to me.

    btw Roarbark's right: "Its definitely possible that they are both D. Spathulata, as Spathulata is such a widely distributed/variable species. (E.G the Fraser Island form is much more reddish then the typical form)"
