    This does not look like D. admirabilis

    I received this plant as D. admirabilis. To me, it looks like D. rotundifolia or capillaris. Whaddya think?

    I think spatulata...but you can always wait for the flowers to confirm it!

    D. spatulata or D. burmannii?

    Try feeding the outer tentacles. If they snap into the center of the leaf, it's a D. burmannii.

    Don't think it's burmanii, too large and the leaves are too long.

    Looks like spatulata to me as well, but like mark said flowers will help determine.
    Maybe Aaron can better figure this one out.

    It's not spatulata or burmannii. The shape of the petiole is wrong for a spatulata.

    The picture isn't showing up anymore, jim.
    If it's the one that flowered for you a month ago, then that is the D. aliciae I sent you.
    Otherwise, the only other thing I sent you was the D. 'Ivan's Paddle' and seeds.
