    Sorry, no picture, this was months ago and I never thought to take one.
    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 used to have 'Pretty Rosette':





    ' Out of curiosity, does 'Psycho' refer to psychological or psychopathic?

    Jim, it sure looks like D. intermedia to me.

    I can vouch for it probably being intermedia. I have a few different forms growing on, they all look very similar. And capillaris (both typical and Long Arm form) tend to have more "triangular" lamina than your plant shows.
    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.

    As I said before trying to identify species through photographs with obovate, spatulate, oblanceolate, or oblong leaves is difficult. How the leaves appear in a two dimensional photograph depends a lot on the perspective, angle and lighting. These can be affected by focal length and position of the lens (distance and angle).

    If you look at Harry A. Gleason's key to American Drosea leaf shape doesn't play a role in distinguishing between Drosera capillaris and D. intermedia. Rather the key depends on flower color (pink for D. capillaris and white for D. intermedia) and the appearance of the seeds. I've stressed this many times before - flowers and seed will give you the best keys to identify between theses species.

    http://www.omnisterra.com/botany/cp/...osera/0077.htm

    (after eliminating D. filiformis, D. rotundifolia, D. linearis and D. anglica we are left with the following:

    Stipules free or lacking.

    Scape glabrous; stipules conspicuous, free

    Flowers white, 7-8 mm. wide; seeds irregularly and densely covered with
    long papillae, 0.7-1 mm. long. -> 5. D. intermedia

    Flowers pink, 10 mm. wide; seeds papillose-corrugated with 14-16 ridges,
    0.4-0.5 mm. long. -------------> 6. D. capillaris

    Scape glandular-pubescent; stipules absent; seeds crateriform, 0.3-0.4 mm.
    long. ---------------------------> 7. D. brevifolia
    Here is an example of how the angle at which a photograph taken can affect the perceived leaf shape (two dimensional image)


    Same leaf, same plant different angle. I'll leave it to you guys to debate the species. It is a species and quite mature - there are 4 or 5 old flower stalks and a new one on the way.

    But one thing we are certain.... it's not a D. fulva! Seriously, no sign of a flower stalk yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if one emerges this summer. For the moment, it does look identical to the Cuba plants right next to it. BTW, I ALWAYS appreciate your input and wit!
