    throw some ids on it (Sundews)

    Here are some pics of dews i haven't been able to id:

    #1- A spatulata variety? I obtained this plant from sgardner, who i haven't been able to contact since August or so.
    He sent me some of intermedia plants that he propagated from plants on his property in California and these were mixed in. They did look very similar at first, but after developing more, they completely transformed in their appearance.

    Originally I thought it was a D. capillaris, but it's starting to look like a D. spatulata.

    Here are before and after pics:
    soon after receiving-


    a little while ago


    later-

    i didn't catch a picture of it, but it's flower is a stunning magenta-hot pink mix.



    And #2
    I received this from laura who got it at an lacps meeting as most likely a D. x beleziana hybrid, but after looking at recent pics, it almost looks like some D. capillaris is in it. It hasn't flowered yet.
    summer pic:


    now:


    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Number looks like spatulata, not sure what variety, though. And number two looks like intermedia x capillaris OR a young rotoundafolia?

    I forgot to mention that I think that plant #2 is pretty much full grown, so unless it's an odd breed of D. rotundifolia, I think it can be ruled out.
    i appreciate your input.

    I think you nailed it NaN. thanks dude. It can see in the first pic the group to the right has that odd shape on the leaf like mine. Mine is just a bit smaller than your flowered-size one. i'm just mad i bought a pack of D. capillaris 'Long Arm' thinking i didn't have it...

    Any idea what spat variety #1 is, though? I sure can't seem to find anything online that looks like it.

    There are too many forms of D. spatulata for an easy ID.

    And ithe other may not be "long arm" but I'm pretty sure it is D. capillaris. Unless it's one of Dr. Frankensnyder's hybrids like D. capillaris x rotundifolia. From the size I'd say not (too small) but you never know if he didn't use "Pasco Giant" in one of his crosses.

    Has the D. spatulata flowered yet? It looks a lot like my potential hybrid "Suzie Q" I was growing several years ago but never published...smallish but thick rosettes intensely red, pink flowers. I remember sending out seed so maybeeeeee....In any event, best referred to as simply Drosera spatulata. A very charming Sundew for all of that.
