    One of these days I'll get brave enough to try my hand at Cephalotus...

    I can't tell from the photo but I can tell you that a young D. binata has leaves that look like half moons.

    Tried to get a picture of the half moon jim was referring to.. didn't do a very good job of it, but hopefully you get the idea. I can somewhat make out the tear drop shape in the original picture, which makes me lean more towards D. Intermedia, but time will tell.

    Just an update for this little plant. Looking at it now, I think it's D. capensis rather than D. intermedia. What do you guys think?

    I think it looks a bit like D. capensis 'Broad Leaf' to me. Which I REALLY like if grown well. http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/4058/dsc05219t.jpg

    Cool! I'll be really stoked if that's what it turns out to be. Unfortunately I can't really grow it well, since it's decided to grow wedged between a bunch of S. minor pitchers.

    gently need it out with a pair of tweezers.. loosen the media around the dew until you are able to work it out of the soil, roots and all. Then repot it. I was GOING to say.. "if grown well.. which it looks like you won't have a problem doing." Since it appears to be doing quite well.

    I might have to give that a try, since I really want to have a mature D. capensis eventually. Apparently their leaves wrap around their prey? None of my other sundews do that from what I've noticed (D. multifida, D. binata, D. filiformis).
