    A Few Drosera

    I bought a small collection of plants last year. It wasn't labeled very well. I could use some help with Id's, any help would be appreciated. All of these plants are growing in the same tray outside in full sun.
    Plant #1
    DSCI0001 by dfleita1368, on Flickr
    DSCI0036 by dfleita1368, on Flickr
    DSCI0109 by dfleita1368, on Flickr

    Plant #2 it's in a 2 inch pot, very small plants.

    Plant #3
    DSCI0132 by dfleita1368, on Flickr

    Plant #4
    DSCI0131 by dfleita1368, on Flickr

    Plant #5 The one on the right
    DSCI0110 by dfleita1368, on Flickr
    DSCI0121 by dfleita1368, on Flickr

    Plants #6 I know the plant in the upper left is some kind of pygmy

    Plant 4 is D. capensis, probably 'narrow'. I have some thoughts about a few of the others, but I would rather someone else with more experience take a guess.

    Looks like you bought a boat load of D. rotundastickya and D. spatuhaha.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    #1 D. spatulata or some such. Looks like what I have growing as ssp. lovellae

    #3... D. capillaris, perhaps? Reminds me a lot of the plants I'm growing (Polk Co., FL locale).

    #4 looks more like D. anglica to me than D. capensis.

    Now that you mention it, it does look more like anglica.

    D. anglica doesn't form a stem. It doesn't appear to have the big papery stipules of D. camporupestris. And D. camporupestris typcially does not bend near the petiole. My verdict is D. capensis.

    #2 I would suspect D. brevifolia.

    Pictures of flowers would definitely help.

    That stem was bothering me, and I think the leaves just look like anglica due to the odd angles they are at in the picture. It's D. capensis.

    As for the others, I have no idea. They all look pretty much the same to me.

    The traps are pretty short for capensis, though, in my opinion. And they seem to be wider near the center than either end. Interesting plant either way.
