    NoID sundew

    Picked this up recently and thought it was something else entirely. It is now starting to take an upward growth habit to the leaves which kind of resemble the long arm form of capilaris. It also has the narrow petioles of something like nidiformis. There are hairy stipules along the margin of the petiole though I dont see them poking out of the growth point quite like spatulata. The new leaves have hairy undersides before unfolding. I thought it was very young strikes of D. adelae, silly me, and it might be D. collinsea as that was one I was supposed to have recieved at one point. Without flowers and not being able to get any closer of a shot this will be a challenge for the most seasoned taxonomist, but I have no doubt that eventually I'll be able to slap a tag on this noid.

    It could be a D. spatulata, but it looks a lot more like a Drosera capillaris.

    I poured over the photos on carnivorous plant photo finder and I can certainly see the resemblance to collins. I also am no expert and hopefully will get a flower someday or more solid characteristics as it matures and really convince me. In any case thanks for weighing in!

    far as closer pics........if you use a magnifying lens in conjunction with your camera you can achieve a closer shot. it is somewhat difficult to tell with that angle. pretty sure it is a collins but i suppose there is an off chance it could be an obovata(ivan's paddle)....i was cloning those at the same time. I cannot recall the trade we made exactly(been a while) but it could be an obovata........if the little stems to the leaves are flat then it is probably an obovata and if they are round it is probably a collins.

    It is hard for me to discern the shape of the little stems for the leaves.....that will be a dead giveaway.

    more i look at it; the more i think it could be an obovata.

    It is one of the 2 bc i wouldn't bother cloning spats.

    what kind of lighting are you using? are you using just 6500k?

    the look a little bushy compared to the collins i have and a little lacking in color compared to the obovata.

    final answer 65 collins/35 obovata
