    Oh crud did I forget to mention it was repotted from under the purpurea pitchers? It was VERY etiolated and that leaf was one of the stretching ones.

    I'm also placing my bets on D.spatulata. Butmaybe... it could even be something in the D.dielsiana/ natalensis mess.

    This is my second post. For some reason the other one did not go thru and I was then logged out somehow.
    Anyway, I was not going to respond to this, but had I thought the same thing that Fernando had mentioned as a possibility.
    This plant has a S. African look to it and my first thought was an etiolated D. dielsiana.
    My experience is far less than Joe, Fernando and Tamlin.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Fernando interesting, if it is indeed in that complex I'm surprized it survived outside in northern NY. Honestly I'm just going to leave it unlabeled..it is a pretty plant but I think I'll wait till William has another opportunity to visit and see the plant for real.

    Fernando,

    LOL, D. dielsiana/natalensis mess - you have a good prespective there! Yes, it could indeed fit the bill there too. Really though, without the peduncle, label it as another Drosera roundandstickya.

    Nep G,

    You have some idea of how hardy the South Africans can be from your experience last winter with D. slackii, so the fact that it survived the cold doesn't discount the D. dielsiana possibility in and of itself.
