    I'd guess that the second one is Drosera burmannii. The leaves seem to be too triangular to be D. natalensis, which based on a very un-scientific google search I just did, appear more round. My $.02

    LOL! That's the biggest Drosera burmannii I have ever seen! But that sounds about right, now that I think of it.

    Is that "Tate's Hell Swamp" D. capillaris getting around again?

    Ivan's D. burmannii is maybe 1.5-2 inches across.

    1" diameter is about right. Never heard of that type of Drosera capillaris. Definitely not the long arm, though.

    The "Long Arm" I gave you is from Tate's Hell Swamp in Florida. It'll spread like crazy if you're not careful with the seed.

    The plants in your first photo, could certainly be Drosera capillaris, though I'd recommend you examine the flowers to be certain. Your second photo is most likely Drosera burmannii, though it may possibly be Drosera sessilifolia, though my vote is for the former, rather than the latter. It is certainly not Drosera natalensis.

    Warren, this doesn't look like the ones you gave me. I have Drosera capillaris from two sources. But I am convinved tha the other is Drosera burmannii

    This is the 'Long Arm' variety, from a couple years ago:
