    Looks more like D. ×tokaiensis than D. spatulata to me.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Just to help you get your nomenclature correct, its Drosera spatulata, not spathulata. The latter refers to a Nepenthes species. The two Latin terms are often, but erroneously, switched. ;-)

    Round leaf blade. No tentacles on petiole. very reduced stipule. Vs D. capillaris. That can still see stipule hairs easily.

    I don't have a clear opinion on their ID: to be honest spatulata and Tokaiensis look mightily similar. I'm sure experts with more experience with the genus can tell the difference, but Drosera are represented by only a few species/cultivars in my greenhouse. I'll defer to other opinions.
