    2 plant IDs needed! :)

    Hi everyone! Picking your knowledge on these 2 plants rescued from lowes. Grown by a company starting with a G like grubers or something. I can not ID the ping (primuliflora?? Leaves are very long 3 inch plus, maybe low light?) and I think the drosera is D. Aliciae? Thanks for the help

    Take a look at this thread

    The Drosera is probably D. spatulata var. gympiensis. Ivan Snyder provided material of these to one of the big tissue culture nurseries in the USA.

    The flower on the Pinguicula do not look like P. primuliflora. Can you get better pictures of the flowers? Maybe P. moctezumae?

    Hi there Not a Number, can I call you NaN? Here are closer photos of both. The drosera sure looks different to the spat I have for sure, this one is much larger. If it is one I'm bringing it back lol I have enough spats. Thanks for helping thus far. I agree the flowers and I think the foliage are different then primuliflora

    Correction: The D. spatulata in wide tissue culture is a hybrid of D. spatulata var gympiensis and the more typical "Kanto" form of D. spatulata. The most striking traits of var gympiensis are the deep pink petals, short hairy scapes and hairy sepals.
