    Glider, do yourself a favor and google the words drosera photos. The topmost one is BobZ's drosera photo site. An excellent pic of the brevifolia bud with hairs and mucilage is shown, as well as a myriad of other brev pics with great variability in leaf and form. FLOWERS are the key!!

    Here are mine, but they're adjusting to new lights and are a little green at the moment.

    I really hate bursting bubbles, but the flower stalk in that picture is smooth, hairless, and mucilage free. Glider, get off your BUTT!!! LOOK at the drosera photos posted in google from BobZ and observe that flower stalk!!! Hairy, with mucilage is what you will see. You are unreasonably sticking a label on a plant because it looks similar?? BAD DEAL!!!!! The flower stalk says it all to me. NOT hairy!! NOT mucilage covered! DO NOT AVOID the proper description of d. brevifolia, part of which is the glandular hairs on the flowering scape, with mucilage. A hairless stalk means NO d. brevifolia. No research means Glider will learn nothing. Don't shortchange yourself, Glider. Use your most important asset in this hobby! PATIENCE!!!!!!!!!
    BTW! Sheila (Indymental) has posted the link to the site in this thread. GO LOOK, GLIDER!!! Use your eyes and observe every pic. Leaf form is variable, but the flower stalk NEVER changes!!!!!!
