Just lift up the leaves and look at the undersides. If they are hairy it's D. aliciae. If it is mostly glabrous than it is D. admirabilis or D. cuneifolia. The flowers and seeds that are coming up will tell you a lot too.
The hitch-hikers might be D. venusta.

Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
I agree that the first one is D. aliciae. The second one looks like D. tokaiensis to me.
I donated that plant too the raffle. Most of the plants are unknown to me but the smallest one that came along with it is D. allantostigma
you like the plant?
ps. I didn't know anybody in the bacps was on here
oh yeah this is the exact same response I got when I asked someone to identify it
Cool! I am liking it – I wish the dew production was a bit more robust, but I did just re-pot it, so it may still be getting comfortable. And it's sending up a flower stalk! I guess it must be relatively happy at least.
Also it's cool that I got a pygmy in the bargain! I've thought about getting pygmies, but it looks like one just fell into my lap! Where do you live in the Bay? I'm up in Richmond, near the El Cerrito del Norte BART. We could geek out on plants together.
The bigger hitchhikers may be tokaiensis, but they also do remind me of short forms (maybe still young?) of D. collinsiae.
Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
I am in palo alto
