    A while back I discovered a D. petalta growing in this pot of VFT "Dingley's Giant". Now I have a couple other hitch-hikers I'd like to get some opinions about ID's for. Thanks and enjoy the pics.

    Numbers 2 & 3 are Drosera burmannii. The 1st is not a "splat" or even a D. spatulata for that matter. It is a South African and looks most likely a D. dielsiana. If you are very lucky it may be a D. rubrifolia but this is unlikely. Still a little immature to give a 100% accurate ID.

    Is there a D. peltata or something similar, off to the left in the first picture?

    Yep.

    After another look the 1st photo could also be a Drosera slackii. But as I said, it is a little too small to be definite.
