    looks very similar to drosera admirabilis, however I've never seen one that red... so maybe not.

    Thank you, kulamauiman. It's just a little t5 HO, but it does the job. It's outside in the southern sun now, so maybe it will flower.

    D. aliciae was my guess, too. And after looking at some photos of admirabilis and venusta, I still think it's aliciae. Guess I'll have to see what/if it flowers.

    And yes, if it's some new strange spatulata it'll be spatuhaha lol!

    That's what I'm thinking, too. For comparison sake, here are some recently received similar sundews:

    D. venusta 'cocciacaulis'

    D. admirabilis

    D. aliciae

    Well crap. Now looking at those photos of D. admirabilis, I'm not so sure its aliciae anymore. If it helps, the photos don't show it, but it has a dark green almost forest green shade to the leaves.

    It's certainly not aliciae. That species tends to have a slight, but noticeable widening at the tip of the leaf, like its relative D. slackii, but not as prominent. I'd still say it looks closer to one of the south American species, the leaf shape fits well.
    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.
