    At least it was an actual drosera. I once got some free "drosera pretty rosette" seeds when I bought another plant online. Turns out they were mislabeled so badly, I don't even understand how it could have happened; they were sarracenia seeds. Good thing I had seen drosera seeds before and decided to look up what I actually had, because apparently whoever packaged them up had never seen them. Gosh, in comparison sarracenia seeds are absolutely gigantic compared to drosera seeds, I don't know how the two could possibly get confused.

    @PsychoSarah - Were the sarr seeds viable? I'd rather have living sarr seed than dead Drosera seeds, which I've ended up with too many times.

    I'm thinking the mystery plant could maybe be D. x beliziana?

    Yeah, they were viable for the most part, only 1 never sprouted. Botrytis killed 2 sprouts, 1 sprout simply failed, never forming proper roots, and so I am left with 2 that have continued to do ok.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    I found this on the Photofinder site:

    These are too rounded. Mine are more elongated.

    D. capillaris is also a little too rounded.
