    Drosera ID help please

    Found two of these guys hitchhiking in a pot of U. livida. Unfortunately no flowers this summer. Is it a juvenile D. spatulata? Any ideas?



    Thanks for your help

    I think it's either D. aliciae or D. admirabilis. D. venusta usually has more upright growth.

    I think it's a D. aliciae IMO. It looks like the one I had.

    Seedlings are tough to identify unless you have lots of experience growing them.

    Ben - I have several D. venusta from seed that are growing flat like this. They are still seedlings so it's probably how they grow at first.

    The plant underneath is not D. aliciae, which does not have the rounded tips like that.

    Another difference is that the tentacles on D. venusta cover only the last 2/3rds or so of the leaf. D. aliciae the tentacles run almost the entire length of the leaves. Not all that clear in this photo.

    It looks South African but it could be D. spatulata...

    Let 'em mature a bit more.

    The plant underneath
    I didnt even notice a smaller seedling underneath the main plant untill I posted the picture! I just presumed both plants would be the same, but you think the one underneath is different because of the more rounded leaf shape? The camera I was using got lost, so cant take any clearer pictures for the time being, sorry.

    Let 'em mature a bit more
    Will do, thanks.

    It could be a different species or the shape of the leaves could change as the plant matures.
