    unknown sundew

    Found it growing in a VFT I received earlier this summer.

    Could it be burmannii?

    Looks like D. burmannii to me as well. Gotta love those snap tentacles!

    Looks kinda like D. sessilifolia , though a snap tentacle check will tell for sure vs. burmannii.

    Yeah looks like my burmanni too...mine's finishing a flower stalk right now but looks like it wants to send up another...also a volunteer, but with a bisquamata plug/mat.

    I would opt for Drosera sessilifolia vs D. burmannii based on the tentacles, the deep coloration and the smaller size. This looks a lot like plants I formerly circulated from the Morro do Jamborino in Brazil. This is a very nicely grown sundew!

    Thanks for the input!

    I tend to grow plants best when I don't know I have them. LOL.
