    Pygmy Drosera ID

    Ok. Here's one for all of you pygmy people. Bought the gemmae as roseana. Doesn't really look like it, but I don't know if this might be a growth habit due to lighting or something similar. Probably not, but I figured I'd chock it up to those who have more experience with pygmies.

    Looks like D. scorpioides. Does it look like this on your end?

    I was thinking scorpioides because of the height. It's certainly not the flat rosette I was expecting. However, there's no coloration to them yet, so I was thinking perhaps the lighting is too low, and causing a different growth pattern.

    I'm by far no expert but unless there's another pygmie that resembles scorpioides...then I'd say scorpioidies. They definitely look like what mine look like. Nice plants

    D. lasiantha resembles scorpiodes but much harder to come by.

    You know, it doesn't really look like any of your dews are getting enough light. What kind of lighting do you have? Perhaps the dews are growing vertically in an attempt to get more light.

    nah his plants are scorpioides...the leaves are too round for it...
    could be really etiolated, judging by the dew just behind it which also looks a little light starved

    Yes- you are correct, Draven. They look like they're pretty etiolated. It does appear to be D. roseana, as they were labeled. But the leaves should be turning a nice red coloration if they had enough light. I'd eventually recommend moving the as close to your lights as possible, but do this gradually so they don't get scortched. D. roseana will form a stem over time, but it shouldn't be that rapid...

    I have to agree. The D. spatulata i think? behind the pygmies should have a bit of red coloration on the leaves if it was getting enough light. I don't know how far yours are from the lights, but I have mine less than 4 inches away from my T-8 and T-12 bulbs.
