    Some large form of D. capillaris?

    Hello! I have quite a few of these and have thought about adding them to my store but have only a guess as to what it is... D. capillaris is my guess and it seems that it's larger than the D. capillaris floating around? I love how they look and they get great size! I figure if I can get a positive ID I'll be a step closer to adding them to the store... So, what say you?

    Thanks!
    Andrew


    PS- I added this to someone's order last night (DavyJones?), hope it's liked as much as I like it!

    Man dews are the tuffest to ID! You also have a VERY common looking dew! I could say it's possibly any of these:

    spatulata
    tokaiensis
    capillaris

    I'm sure there are more these are just a few off the top of my head.

    I know right hence not trusting only my view! I'm going to glance around and see if I can find any currently in flower.... But we all know how it is to catch a Drosera flower open!

    Can't be sure with these Spatulatas and spatulata hybrids, but to me, it looks like it could be D. tokaiensis, or a common form of D. spatulata. Regardless of what it is, it's a great plant!
    Do you have any flower pics?

    Well, here's a few pics to help id it:
    D. tokaiensis:

    How far does the horizontal portion of the scape extend? I'm partial to one of the South Africans like D. natalensis or the large form of D. admirabilis. D. capillaris hardly has a horizontal portion, D. spatula forms a short portion that isn't really horizontal at all. South Africans the horizontal part goes any where from about half the length of the leaves to past the leaves. D. capillaris rarely forms multiple scapes.
