    Hi, I have been growing this plant for some years as D.planchonii but now I notice that species is not valid and is a synonym for D.macrantha.



    Anybody here can help ID this plant??



    Thanks,

    Recommend you PM Tamlin Dawnstar for pygmy ID. He'is pretty good. One thing is for sure, It is Not Drosera macranthra.

    Looks like a D. Pulchella. As Bugweed guaranteed, it is not D. Macrantha as that plant is a climbing tuberous Drosera.

    The wide petiole is suggestive of D. pulchella, but macro shots can be deceiving: any chance of a flower photo? Whatever species it is (and I am pretty sure it is D. pulchella) it is a pygmy sundew.

    You are correct, the former D.planchonii is now regarded as a subspecies of D. macrantha, although not a synonym. It is a valid subspecies, but this is a climbing tuberous species.

    Tamlin,

    IŽll have to wait until the plants bloom to take pics of the flowers. By now i will take a pic of my D.pulchella plants to compare. I see my pulchella has wider petioles.

    The flower would tell the tale: if there are red club shaped styles this would be D. nitidula x D. pulchella.
