    Drosera...?

    Bought some CP's through a catalog in a flower store...
    I'm not sure if they're the same I ordered by name or variants...

    D. venusta?
    Isn't the leaf supposed to be pinkish-orange?

    D. adelae?
    Looks more like a D. ascendens to me...

    Drosera sp.
    They gave it to me as a gift for buying more than 5, so I have no idea what species it may be...

    Thanks beforehand

    The first two are correct, just a bit light/humidity starved.
    Not sure about what the 3rd is though.

    The second one is D. adelae, the first is probably D. venusta like you said.

    The third is D. natalensis.

    I have a very similar looking D. natalensis as the one in the third pic.

    Hmm, I guess I should have let them recover from the trip...
    I'll post updated pics later to see if the 3rd is easier to identify...

    I would say #1 is D. venusta. Coloration depends on amount and quality of light it is grown in.

    #2 - Though difficult to make out from the photo there appears to be a "petiole" - region without tentacles and hairs on the undersides. With those features most likely Drosera villosa or D. ascendens. D. villosa is somewhat variable in form. D. ascendens is a synonym for D. villosa
    D. villosa var ascendens is invalid not having been properly published.

    #3 - I can't make out if there are sparse, thick trichomes on the back/undersides of the leaves from the photos. If they are there then D. slackii. If not then most likely D. natalensis or less likely D. cuneifolia (less like because of the size of the region bare of tentacles on the leaves). D. natalensis is highly variable in form.

    As they grow out it will be easier to give a more conclusive ID. Flowers are especially important to ID as species.
