    Need ID!

    Hi guys, I found this little dude growing in a recently acquired pot of 'Giant Staghorn Sundew.' Is this little hitchhiker merely spawn of this plant, or something else? I'm assuming forms of D. Binata start off with the normal round shaped leaves while young, but maybe I received a gift when I got this!

    looks like either a D. spatulata or D. capillaris, to me.

    Hmm... I think D. spatulata would look different, with more evenly curved leaves.

    It looks a bit like D. dielsiana. I've heard those are common weeds in large, commercial cp nurseries.

    D. dielsiana colors can be very variable.

    Definitely Drosera regia.

    Haha, but seriously, I think it is D. spatulata.

    I note the larger plant bifurcates at the top. This is Drosera binata. Also the name as written in single quotes suggests this is a published cultivar (thats what the single quote mark means) but it is not a legitimate name since it has never been published. So it's just Drosera binata (assuming you wish to be botanicaly correct in your naming).

    The smaller plant has no discernable taxonomic features in this photo, therefore it is Drosera roundandstickyum. Can you get a larger photo of the rosette?
