    Drosera spatulata?

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Can anyone confirm if this is drosera spatulata? Slightly reddish in color

    Can take more photos if needed. Thanks in advance!

    Yes, in my opinion it is. However it would be best to have another opinion. I know @hcarlton is a wiz at IDing things. Maybe he can help?

    I wouldn't call myself a whiz, I just seem to grow the species most people ask about (multiple forms sometimes, which helps too )
    This isn't spatulata, but most likely D. natalensis. I don't know if those flower stalks off to the side of the pic are active but a flower shot would confirm.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    Thank you for correcting me, Im still trying to learn. I thought it was spatulata due to the indents on the leaves and the way multiple are emerging out of the middle at once.

    D. spatulata has elongate leaves generally, with gradual tapering, not sudden indents between lamina and petiole. Example:
    D. spatulata 'Tamlin' x "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

    Of the forms that break this rule are ones like D. spatulata var. bakoensis (very rare in cultivation) and a handful of forms from places like New Zealand
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
