    Hi,

    As already mentioned by others, i don't think, your plant is D. capillaris as well. It might be, Drosera spatulata. Take a look at the scapes. If they are not glabrous it is not Drosera capillaris. Another distinctive feature of D. capillaris are the seeds (you should have lots of them). Seeds of D. capillaris are ovoid and have bumps. Seeds of Drosera spatulata on the other hand have some longitudinal rows. This differnce is easy to see.

    P.S.: Drosera capillaris semms to be one of the most wrong labeled plants in Germany. Up to now, i have never been able to get plants or seeds of this species here in Germany. It would be great, if anyone had some seed spare to share with me! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
