    The first is in a pot of miscellaneous drosera I got at a BACPS raffle. What are the big red ones?



    And this one is in a pot of pygmies. It clearly has a more vertical growth, and looks a lot different than the pygmies, which are D. palacea



    Sorry for the photos, but it's getting too dark to get good sharp shots.

    It looks like a young D. scorpioides to me. If it is, it will grow to about 4" tall.

    I can't yell what the first is; it looks SO red. The second one really does look like D. scorpiodes.

    I was going to say maybe burmanii for the first. How long are the tentacles? It's a little hard to tell in the pic, but if they're really long (comparitively), then burmanii would be a good guess.

    Scorpioides for the second.

    Sigh. I don't know...

    I've had the scorpioides, and this one has rounder leaves, almost like a tall D. pulchella. We'll see as it gets bigger.

    I have the green burmanii indoors, and it is very similar, but has leaves shapped a little more like triangles than this one. I'm going to get a better pic.

    Could be sessifolia. The second could be a palacea trying to get closer to the light.
