nep1 (to see if it's pure platy):
noid 1 (is it sang orange?):
noid 2 (vent red? based on the vendor):
noid 3 (copelandii? has huge lids...):
noid 4 (sang red?):
The dew appears to be a burmannii or one of the closely related species
the first nep looks like a fusca of some kind, possibly the flared peristome variety, can i get a look at the leaf tips? possibly fusca x veitchii
noID1 is a sang
noID2 is a ventricosa, let it get some size, but i am pretty positive it is a ventricosa
noID3&4 also look like sanguinea judging by leaf shape and attachment, the lids look similar to my sang when it was that size, all nice plants
Sundew is D. burmanni but idk about the neps.
My grow list/want list
Prior to the funeral home visit, we heard ~ "Hey'all watch this ! !"
The dew looks like a burmanni and nep2 looks like a ventricosa.

Thanks...thought so on that dew, but I don't know that much about dews. I really hope what I paid for on that "platychila" isn't actually a platychilaXfusca...

i would really lean to plat x fusca, im not a platy expert at all, but the plant has something that just yells that it has fusca parentage....it could just be a young platty, i completely missed acouple of the photos, must not had loaded completely, the lid of the current pitcher definitely indicates that its not a fusca, but still very well may be a hybrid with platy.
hey zuz. im sorry but i think you might have a platy x fusca as well. i wouldnt blame tony but rather his suppliers for their laxness when it comes to species purity. (you can roast me alive now because i made a strong statement without support)
but that being said, i got a platy from Tony as well, and im inclined to think that it's the real thing. you've seen the pitchers and they are much less tubular than your "platy". i've also noticed a difference at the base of the leaves. mine are very close together almost like burbidgeae, but yours is more open.
i guess it's really the luck of the draw.
I guess I'll grow it out and hope for the best. I've got some other junk = hybrids (oh, I'm feeling like stoking the flames tonight) growing in with the species anyway. It's about 15" from leaf tip to leaf tip, excluding tendrils. Fuzzy as heck though.
