    first off, i want to thank everyone for helping, i really appreciate it.

    i can say that all mine are 100% identical. they are only a few weeks old, maybe even older and i just never noticed them, but my cp collection/mini bog started in March of this year.

    the pictures were from multiple pots. they are growing in 4 pots including the mini bog.

    i was really shocked to hear the mention of nitidula as I did have ~30 D. nitidula x pulchella gemmae a while back that i sowed into only mini bog(didnt have anyway to grow it under lights indoors) and it didnt look like any had sprouted but rather burned up and dried up. the thing is also that after i thought they had been goners, our chihuahua shredded the garden and dug out all the peat, from which most of the peat was reused but never in other pots, just the bog. the capensis i got from andy had a flower but didnt seem like it had developed far enough before i chopped it(before putting in the bog).

    the only 2 options is D. nitidula x pulchella or D. capensis from what i can gather.

    Dude,

    Thats the batch of pygmies I sent you in a trade/giveaway a while back. I can tell by the first pick and having sowed 100s myself. A good sign to me is in the first picture: Do you see how several tentacles have dewy ends. However, notice the other tentacles. See how some of the other tentacles are longer and sharper without dewy ends. There are pygmies in there. There do seem to be some capensis hitchikers in there as well. I think you've got both.

    Just because it's small doesn't mean it's a pygmy.
    I'll have some of that please, could do with some spare $$$...it is NOT a capensis!

    No worries I agree entirely. Definitely appears to have D. nitidula in it, as most of these pygmy hybrids usually have. The other parent will either be D. pulchella or ericksoniae.

    It is obvious from the lamina, it is obvious from the petiole and it is obvious from the stipules. It is a pygmy Drosera.
