    hmmm. those do look like D. natalensis that I grow at a younger age. The weird part is that I don't think I sent you any of those...
    Here's a pic of mine so you can decide for yourself:


    I know that CPblake mentioned that he sent you some D. dielsiana seeds a while ago (which I'm 99.9% sure are supposed to be labeled as D. natalensis), but you were describing your struggles with seed a while back, so I'm not sure whether or not you think these came up from seed.

    Either way, you can be pretty sure that they are D. natalensis. Eventually, if they don't get anything to eat for a while and conditions are right, you'll start noticing the leaves will lose their circular shape, and will look a bit more like D. aliciae. I haven't upped a picture of that yet, so maybe I'll do that soon.

    These came from a trading post offering. Hopefully, they will flower soon.

    i'm already fairly certain these are the same as mine, though.
