    Lowe's rescue sundew - what is it?

    I can't for the life of me identify what kind of sundew this is. Does anyone know?

    It doesn't look too awful, but it's certainly not it's healthiest.

    I think plant karma must exist - I did two rescues today and I got bonuses both times (the ping had a cluster of seedlings). In this pic you can see the extra smaller drosera in the back.

    Hi Valydius -

    Looks to be a struggling Drosera adelae. They definitely like shade for some of the day, so make sure you don't put it in full sun... or else you'll fry it. You can tell if D. adelae is thriving if the leaves start to turn a light red color. They also tend to like more humidity.

    Don't toss the adelae quite yet. Who knows... maybe there will be some plantlets.

    Yep, D. muscipula's has a nice, healthy tan. Look at the red. A healthy D. adelae really is a beautiful plant.

    I had a D. adelae from Lowe's and I cut the entire plant off at the roots. Shortly there after I had several (and I mean several!) plants sprouting up at the roots. It will be fine. Just give it lots of light.

    this is adelae in process of recovering and to become like DM's adelae. if DM remembers i asked him the same exact question and my adelae looks exactly like yours. i mean 95% resemblance


    i'm a bad photographer, but it looks almost like yours, with the exception of alot of dews, and tip of the dews turning red. the new one are completely red though. those brownish red one are the old one that died back.
