    It's a little hard to tell right now, as it was an extra thrown in. It's still very small, and recovering from shock. I assume it was grown in a terrium so it looks like it may have to get use to the lower humidity, which is still around 70% because I live near the water. I guess I'll know more when it's bigger. From the photos I've seen I'd say it's more likely than not D. affinis.

    You can see pictures of one of my D. affinis Namibia plants here: http://sdcarnivorousplants.photosite.com/BACPSsh....ad.html

    (looking rather stressed after spending a few days in the car). I believe it's the real McCoy. It came to me from a local TC expert, not Ivan. Peter's plant (most indubitably a D. spatulata) came from the LACPS seedbank, which is run by Ivan. In the future, I will have to remember to confiscate the labels from the mislabeled plants I give to Peter for the bog at the local botanical gardens...

    BTW Peter, don't you owe me $10? If you're short on cash, I could be convinced to accept your camera as remuneration. I know where you live, ya know.

    ZAK,
    The plants I sent are cuttings that were growing in the sort of sealed containers illustrated below. They will grow quickly if gradually acclimated to bright, airy conditions.

    I find the species grows easily in good peat-based mixes or clean podzols. It appears to favor the same moderately warm, bright conditions as the other ever-growing South African sundews.

    Thanks Forbes Both the plants you sent me have now become "office plants". I had a few of those square terriums from a recent Lowes rescue and I put them in those. I just changed the lights in my office to 1-5000kand 1-3000k. Both plants seem to have improved noticably since I've brought them to the office. I'll acclimate them to the humidity when their a little larger. Heaven know as much as I'm at the office these day they'll get more attention from me than my home plants. Thanks again.

    Yeah whatever... thats the trouble with the sticky little weeds. They all look the same. I can make them look nice, but that doesn't mean they're superior or anything [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
