    Here's another shot of that Drosera. It might help with ID. The pot is 2 3/4" for reference.

    Thanks Ant. I think it's a little large to be D. brevifolia. Plus it appears to be perennial.

    D. venusta? I've seen some adult venusta as big as that. Maybe.....maybe not. I suck at this mystery stuff.

    It could be D. spatulata, D. venusta, or D. dielsiana but my vote's on a D. spatulata.

    Hi Brokken,

    The first one looks like D indica "green form" and the second looks like D. venusta (with some D. burmannii and a D. intermedia hitchhiker..)

    Happy Growing,

    Brian.

    That is a D. venusta for SURE. The flower stalk proves it. The leaves can be shaped like D. spatulata.

    I grow many D. venusta in varying locations. That one doesn't get much light.
