    Actually that is part of it, when you have grown a bunch of them you can tell them by eye for the most part (thought I still can not tell petiolaris from dilatato-petiolaris for the life of me.)

    Basically to tell apart the two you have it is the shape of the petiole and how hairy it is. For petiolaris there is a distinct constriction point and the petiole is by and large smooth except at the base. For paradoxa the petiole tapers along its entire length (basically it is a cone) and is fuzzy along its entire length. There are a couple other smaller details but that is the major points for my decision.

    Cindy,
    Looks like your D. petiolaris may have multiple growth points in there. If so, each can easily become a separate plant .....
    All the best,

    Pyro,
    Thanks. I'll need to have many more years of experience and dozens of clones before I can tell the difference. I stare at them again and I can't distinguish the features you described. I am poor at Nep hybrids ID so I think this deficiency has spilled over to Drosera.

    Ron,
    I've already done that.

    Another question...does D. petiolaris clump more readily? I see that in my plant but for paradoxa, I see only the rare one or two offshoots.

    Cindy,

    It'll come with time. Trust me.

    By and large petiolaris does clump (thought I have one clone that never has for me.) On the flip side paradoxa does not really clump much but will occasionally throw offshoots.
