    I got this dorsera from a friend and it came with a label "D. adelae" It sure doesn't look like one. It is a young plant, so I'm not really sure. Does anyone know if this is actually a D. adelae, or is it another type?

    Looks like young D. adelae plants to me also. The plant in the bottom left corner looks like its leaves are beginning to get the long, narrow form of what you expect to see on D. adelae.

    I agree, it does not look like a Drosera adelae plant. It looks like many Drosera adelae plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    The one in the foreground is a D. adelae, but the other 2 look more like D. schizandra. Just was curious about this?

    Frogger, they are immature d. adelae[Edit: Drosera adelae, genus names are always capitalized, even when abbreviated.]. Trust us. They will be like any other d. adelae[Edit: Drosera adelae, genus names are always capitalized, even when abbreviated.] really soon.

    Yikes! Hard to identify with the quality pic, but i can safely say it's adelae[Edit: Drosera adelae] or schizandra [Edit: Drosera schizandra].



    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.
