    Two Drosera unknowns - need ID please

    Hi there,

    I have two drosera unknowns that were sent to me and I forgot to label. Any thoughts would be appreciated. If possible, please post links to other examples of the plant that you believe this is.

    Drosera unknown #1:



    Drosera unknown #2:



    Thanks and Happy Holidays!

    First one almost looks like it has the texture of D. filiformis or Drosophyllum and the second one looks like a D. spatulata of D. aliciae ( spelling is horrible on that one) haha.

    It does look like Drosophyllum, but I'm pretty sure it's not. The second, I got from someone as part of a trade. Since I already have D. aliciae, it's unlikely that I would have traded for it, but it's certainly a good guess.

    Because of the internodal distances, I'm going to say a Byblis for picture 1. I would need a top-down photo before I could guess on picture 2.

    Yeah, I thought about it. I'm not ruling out the possibility, though I have no idea where I would have picked up a Byblis seed.

    I'm very sure the first one is a Drosera indica. That species looks very similar to a Byblis or Drosophylum.

    Drosera indica! That's what it is! Now I remember receiving a small packet from Crissytal when I purchased something else from her! Good ID!

    One down, one to go.

    Not sure, but the last one reminds me of Drosera brevifolia.
