    Since nearly all sundews start out with rounded leaves, before taking adult form, it's possible that they are capensis. Right now they look like D. brevifolia, but that's not realistic.

    From what I've seen, most dews usually get characteristics of the adults around that stage. I can tell you that it's not D. capensis, because if it was, the leaves would be more drawn out and erect. I don't know what D. filiformis seedlings look like, although that sort of says D. rotundifolia to me.

    It could be that that LFS had D. rotundifolia seeds when collected, and now they're sprouting for you.

    Man I wish the bags of dried LFS had something other than sedge seeds! I keep wondering why there aren't any accidental rotundifolia or intermedia in there.

    Have you allowed either the capensis or the filliformis to flower?

    The newest emerging leaf looks a bit capensis-y

    This is a very old picture (3 years old maybe), but it's of a D. capensis seedling. You can see that upper's and mine are of roughly the same size and are very different. Mine has mildly erect stems and more elongated, curling leaves.

    wanna start a betting pool? I put 10 bucks on capensis

    I've got a whole pot of VFTs polluted by capensis seeds, and I'm pretty sure when they first came out they looked like upper's. We'll see though...
