    Mystery Drosera

    Three years ago, I picked up a sundew at Lowes on impulse. I ended up growing it in a terrarium with fir bark in the bottom (I know better now, don't worry.). Earlier this year, I decided to make a much more informed attempt at growing carnivorous plants, and transferred them into plastic pots with a LFS/peat moss/perlite blend, and they've perked up considerably. However, in the three months since I started educating myself on the taxonomy and cultivation of these plants, I haven't been able to come up with a positive ID on these.


    I'm sure I just haven't looked enough, but I figured I'd ask here anyways. I will get better pictures if quality is an issue. Thanks for looking!

    That looks like the young version of D. adelae.

    Don't know why I didn't think of that. Thanks you guys! These will be up for trade once they get a little larger, if anyone wants one.

    I didn't know that they would spread at that level of maturity- I started out with one, but now, three years later, I have eight. Also, they curl lengthwise when they're fed. They have the same growth form as D. glabripes, do you think that might be a possibility? I almost hope that they're D. adelae, though, since they're my favorites.

    Most of the D. glabripes in the US is actually a natural hybrid of D. glapripes and D. aliciae - D. ×corinthiaca. D. glapripes forms a stem like D. drosera madagascariensis

    My D. glabripes is about 30 cm tall now (old photo):


    This is D. ×corinthiaca
