    Sounds a little like a Sarracenia (sp?) to me actually. I'm having trouble visualizing from the details you gave though. I've found that if you go to Google and just type in "Drosera" or "Sarracenia" you can get pictures of a lot of the different variants. That's how I decided what kind of Sundew to get originally. Post a pic when you can and we'll try to help. Best of luck! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The sundews I've purchased at Lowes where D. adelae. If you decide to seperate the plants, take some root cuttings from the D. adelae. My one plant has become four pots full of this plant.

    For pictures, try this site http://www.humboldt.edu/~rrz7001/

    D. adelae does not require dormancy. I grow mine in a terrarium and it grows like a weed.

    Have fun with your new plants.

    Oh yeah, try to keep the D. adelae above 40 degrees F. You will need to seperate it from the others before you put the others to bed for the winter.
