    Wow!

    Didn't anyone notice the extremely creepy looking Black Widow spider in that sundew?

    Was it placed there or was it caught by the plant?

    Thank you. No the plants where labeled wrong by the nursery that sells them second hand. They said D. Callistos Pigmy CP from Australia! I do not like having hybrid plants mixed in with my collection. I also dont like having mislabels. UGH! Thank you though. I am glad I asked. The biggest one is making gammae I think!! woo hoo. to bad i dont know what it is. Maybe if I trade I will say Random Pygmy lol... I have noticed though that one of them has pink globes and the others have Red globes of killer juice drops... Thanks

    Yes...most cp growers look at hybrids like they are the last plants they want in their collection. That's too bad! Some of them are natural hybrids, they are more resistant, flower more often, produce more gemmae and most sometimes are more beautiful than other non-hybrid species. That's why we don't like them!!!
    Like i said...that's just too bad!

    This is likely the hybrid Drosera pulcjella x D. nitidula, those dark clublike styles are diagnostic for D. nitidula and its hybrids.

    This section of Droseracae is very difficult so the ID issues are not a surprise, but not limited to TF by any means. I've gotten misidentified material from all quarters.

    No mistaking the metallic orange flowers and black centers of Drosera callistos.

    Also, if you want to be botanically correct, note the Genus name is always capitalized and the species rank always is lower case.

    With Pink/Purplish flowers with yellow styles it is probably Drosera omissa x pulchella. I have the same plant labeled as D. nitidula x pulchella too.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    That is omissa x pulchella for sure! You can even see the omissa in it!
