    Thanks for the help. Standard care for this guy? Water every three days or so and mist it to keep pitcher production going?

    They said the supplier for their CPs is just some guy off the street who has a large collection.

    That's the general idea. A subspecies is a more formal call and considered to be more definitely defined. It gets kind of messy below the species level, and sometimes above it. Calling something that looks decidedly different than the norm a 'form' is usually safe, though.

    Drosera intermedia has leaf lamina (the traps) that are longer than wide ordinarily. D. rotundifolia has lamina that are wider than long or more round usually. Also they are more ground-hugging. This is how it looks to me on your photo.

    You have certainly gotten a good response to your questions. If you haven't been around TF for awhile you might be surprised at just how knowledgeable some of these growers are! (Myself excluded.)

    Going by the 1st photo in the post I see 2 D.intermedia, one at 2:00 and one at 5:00. I also see what appears to be D.capillaris at 6:00. I'm not seeing anything that resembles D.rotundifolia in that pot.

    The smaller rosetted plants are D. intermedia and tokaiensis (which appears to be widely mistaken for capillaris as much as it is spatulata). The thin-leaved plants are definitely D. filiformis, probably the nominate form (classification goes subspecies, variety, and form, corresponding usually from geographically to distinct color morphs to what one could call line-breeds, the latter two often not recognized by some taxonomists). D. tracyi does have red pigment in the tentacles, but only in the heads and relatively faint, while the entire tentacle and often the leaves in filiformis have color. tracyi also has shorter, denser tentacles.

    The nep is definitely ventrata, and the Sarracenia if they don't have labels shouldn't be given one, but the first looks somewhat like that plant they call "Carolina Yellow Jacket" but with more veins...
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    Spot on. The unidentified Sarrs are very likely to be 'Judith Hindle' and 'Bugbat', which are common TC-produced plants.
    How can gravity be so strong if it doesn't even lift?

    I thought the taller one looked a little too thin to be Judith. Was my first inclination but it looks a little off, though that might just be because the leaves are half dead....Bug Bat looks right though.

    I'd say the hood is pretty distinct. Not aware of many mass TC'ed plants with that look to it.

    I agree that my 'rotundifolia' is actually intermedia. 'Guess that will teach me to look at the full-resolution shot before making a call. I do think the 6:00 plant has overly thick petioles to likely be D. capillaris.
