    So, now that I got a new camera, I took pictures. I bought this as a Drosera Graminifolia. Is it?

    Again, seeing that D. graminifolia is tropical, it shouldn't go dormant. It was probably some misidentification or possibly even a scam. However, if it starts to grow again, please post pictures to confirm if it really is D. filiformis.

    I enlarged your image in PhotoShop and see a typical winter bud of Drosera filiformis in the middle. I don't see any of the sort of "onion skin" membrane that D. graminifolia has around the growth point.

    D. graminifolia is definitely different from temperate mimic, D. filiformis. I found this article http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn...25n2p51_54.pdf it may help.

    Thanks for the link, it's difficult to find much on South American Drosera.

    Here's some photos I just took. The D. filiformis have been growing outdoors for 2-3 years. The D. graminifolia has been outdoors since last spring. The D. filiformis are just beginning to grow again:

    Square pots (top to bottom): Drosera filiformis var tracyi, D. filiformis var filiformis "Florida Giant". Round pot: D. graminifolia


    D. filiformis var tracyi


    D. filiformis var filiformis "Florida Giant"


    D. graminifolia notice the "onion skin" or what Fernando Rividavia describes as "Large, triangular, translucid, golden-bronze stipules"



    There's no doubt in my mind that what you have is D. filiformis.
