    Well, the new leaves of my D. capensis 'Narrow' happen to be curling backwards after they uncurl completely. They aren't straight at all, they're curled into a loop. It is healthy and has a bunch of dew and is growing fast, and has some nice pink/red coloration. What could be the problem, if there is any?

    I don't think it's a problem - mine do that sometimes too.

    Gee, that was a quick reply. Alright, I'll just assume that my plant is "curling with delight". [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Oh, and this happens to be a bit off the subject, but this question was bugging me:

    Is it D. spatulata or D. spathulata?

    Its D. spatulata I believe.

    I thought it didn't matter if it's spelled spatulata or spathulata kinda like color or colour and besides spathulata looks fancier :P

    I've been told by more experienced growers that it's Drosera spatulata. There's a Nepenthes by the name of spathulata and apparently that's where the confusion comes from...
